Not Your Typical Dragon by Dan Bar-el and illustrations by Tim Bowers
Crispin is a little dragon who finds he is not your ordinary fire-breathing dragon, much to his father’s disappointment. When his birthday comes around, Crispin feels “a tingling inside his tummy. But when he opened his mouth, fire did not come out.” Readers will be delighted by the unexpected but fitting things that do come out of Crispin’s mouth!
When Crispin meets a knight who is lacking in fierceness, a friendship may be in the making. The illustrations are a delight, depicting the funny and surprise items coming out of Crispin’s mouth…and readers will feel satisfied by the ending, where Crispin’s different talent saves the day!
A great read-aloud, suggested for ages 3-6.
