I absolutely loved the book, “The Pet Dragon”. This book could be very helpful to readers of all ages who are learning Chinese. The part I liked most about this book was the illustrations. Each illustration correlated to the Chinese character on the page in the book. A character refers to symbol that relates to certain Chinese. The illustrator used the base of a character to turn it into what the word represents. For example, for the word “person”, when written in Chinese, this is written with strokes that form two lines. The illustrator created the Chinese character in green and then created other illustrations around it to make the Chinese character actually look like a person. I thought this was a very clever idea and helpful for people who have just started learning Chinese. Another reason I enjoyed reading this book was because of the plot of the book. The plot incorporated friendship and adventure between the two main characters, the little girl and her dragon. This relationship between these two characters can be very significant for young children. Young children can relate to their friends and fun adventures they have been on as well. The main idea of this story is to teach Chinese characters through illustrations and an adventurous plot. ( )

"Meet Lin and her pet dragon!

When the dragon mysteriously disappears, Lin sets off on a journey to find her best friend . . . and readers set off on a journey of learning and discovery.

By ingeniously integrating written Chinese characters into the illustrations as the story progresses, Christoph Niemann has created a book that is engrossing, unique, and memorable. The Pet Dragon is a playful introduction to the fascinating world of Chinese language and culture . . . and a terrific story to share with children everywhere.

You are invited to join Lin for an adventure you will not soon forget!"
