She is utterly delighted with this book. She sat down with it for two hours when she first got it and read it in one sitting. This very rarely happens. It has not left her side since she got it. I'm really hesitant about actually buying new books these days, we're so overflowing and we're BFF's with the library....but from time to time, a new book does indeed come to live with us.
Trying to read while ignoring the mother.
The mother is still here, sadly.
I can tell you one very important thing that's in this book: DRAGON POO. Dragons like to poo, A LOT, and some like to poo in your shoes. I swear I'm not making this up, look at the photo above please, does it look like I'm making this up?? This is my favorite page. Those are a whole bunch of detailed drawings of the various and sundry types of dragon poo.
Did I just offend you with all of this poo? Don't be offended. Your kids are going to think this is the greatest thing ever, and they would be entirely correct.
'The Complete Book of Dragons' is really one you must seek out. (and you should thank me for refraining from showing the biggest poo of all, I think it was called the 'Rhinobacker' or something. It was ENORMOUS. My personal favorite is 'puggle', did you see that tiny guy? It's a cute little poo.)
