Not Your Typical Dragon

notyourtypicaldragonWritten by Dan Bar-el, Illustrated by Tim Bowers

When it’s time for Crispin to breathe fire on his 7th birthday, fire doesn’t come out; lots of other things do. Feeling left out and depressed, Crispin finally saves the day, and his dad and their house by putting out his father’s flames.

This is a cute story that will help cure a shy child who feels different from his friends. The pictures are colorful, bright and humorous.
