    15. There are at least 2 books due in this series and I need them The first book is adorable It s about two brothers who wander far from home to rescue their dog from a dragon It has a bit of a different layout from most picture books and that is okay It s fun, the rhymes are spot on, and the illustrations both colorful, and when just sketches, still joyful.

    16. Easy reader for young readers This story is great for kids who love dragons and rhymed stories Entire series is done in verse It s not too bad actually Illustrations were fun I received a Kindle copy of this story from Netgalley in exchange for a fair review.

    17. really great rhymes with a fun rhythm, but the illustration looked sloppy and unfinished it looks like that s what the illustrator was going for a looser style but it didn t work for me i expected each page to look like the cover, but didn t get that.

    18. A very cute and beautifully illustrated book for children with fun rhymes and plenty of adventure Flynn and Paddy go on a quest to rescue their dog, Coco, from a dragon who has stolen him away in the night They travel to the dragon s lair and must use their resourcefulness to rescue Coco.

    19. When two brothers see their dog stolen away by a dragon, they go on an adventure to get her back I really liked the premise of this one, and I could see reading it a few times over with my little one she loves dragons , but I think it probably could have been done a little better.There was a rhyming scheme throughout that read pretty smoothly This is great because that s something we re working on in school right now In terms of plot and story arcs though, it felt like it could have been written [...]

    20. A rainy day Two siblings Their beloved dog Anda dragon Yes, Flynn and Paddy and their chocolate lab, Coco, are stuck inside due to bad weather But when Coco is sent outside, she is carried off by a dragon while the boys helplessly watch through the window Mom doesn t believe them, so the boys have to stage a rescue themselves Can two small boys really vanquish a mythical beast and retrieve Coco James Russell s jaunty rhyming text swoops us up and carries us into the story just as easily as the d [...]

    21. I love dragons I love fantasy settings I love good artwork I love the concept for this book When I was younger, way back in the day, I remember playing pretend with my little brother and probably due to me being obsessed with Eragon and Spirited Away at the time there was always a dragon, either my companion and best friend, or mortal enemy that I needed to defeat to save the village Reading this book brought me straight back to that magical feeling I got when playing pretend.This is a sweet lit [...]

    22. So, is it crazy that I thought maybe the dragon was lonely and wanted a dog That maybe he saw this poor dog, out in the rain, all alone after an attempt by one of the boys to ride him went poorly Maybe in the next adventure.As with many rhyming stories, it might take a bit of practice to get them all to work as a read aloud kind of like trying to get song lyrics to fit a measure, but I suspect this story will get some laughs especially with the description of the great escape After all, bottoms, [...]

    23. I ve read this a few times since it was first published, and I picked it up again as a present for my nephew It s a fun little story that most kids will love.

    24. A really wonderful children s book The first instalment of a trilogy, it follows the the brothers Paddy and Flynn, fans of breakfast, adventures, and dragons Told by rhyming verse, the story is funny, heartwarming and entertaining, complemented by Choi s fantastic illustrations With the current popularity of Peter Jackson s The Hobbit series, with it s infamous greedy, clever and arrogant Smaug, this book is released at the perfect time for its audience, and the maps in the book are even reminis [...]

    25. What is it about parents not seeing magic This is such a common thing in children s literature, it is getting old I love it when parents do see magic It can change the story and keep it fresh.But this is not that story This is the story of two brothers, who lose their dog to a dragon, and must get it back The pictures showing the dragon are splendid, but the ones of the kids and their mother are toned down Was there a dragon Or did their mother just not see what the kids could see It is a good e [...]

    26. I think I was expecting something better I ve seen this hyped up a lot and had it in my hands a few times thinking to purchase but never quite got there.The story is simplicity itself, sparsely so, but it s the execution that lets us down The rhyming is a little shonky with some poor flow in places and it s really not that interesting The opening page map promises so much and delivers very little, presumably saving things for the other books And why a trilogy This would have worked as a single s [...]

    27. A very cute story about two brothers, Flynn and Paddy, and their beloved dog, Coco, who is whisked away by a dragon They set out on a journey to find the dragon and rescue their pet Told in rhyming verse, this fun little adventure is sure to become a favorite of young children everywhere The illustrations fit the mood of the story, are fun, and even include a map This is the first in a trilogy of picture books for children so this is perfect for young children who want to the story Keep an eye [...]
