Has your dragon forgotten how to breathe fire? Have no fear. This imaginative story follows the exploits of one frustrated dragon owner as she tries increasingly hilarious tricks to rekindle her dragon's flame. Covering everything from the simplest tactics (tickling the dragon), to the sneakiest ones (surprising it with unlit birthday candles), this book is perfect for children who love to guess what's going to happen next. Readers will learn that in the end, the most important thing is loving the dragon unconditionally. If a person can do that, and if they mean it from the bottom of their heart, then they might discover a truly magical result.

A VERY patient dragon endures his child's many attempts to reignite his fire in this amusing picture-book from France. The jaunty text reads like an advice manual, offering one suggestion after another, from cheating at cards to make your dragon angry to vigorous tickling. In the end though, it is the magic of a kiss (and the love behind it, one supposes) that does the trick...

Originally published in French as Comment rallumer un dragon éteint, this delightful picture-book romp features a wonderfully droll narrative that will read quite well aloud, and expressive and boldly colorful artwork sure to grab and keep the reader's attention. I appreciated the use of various font sizes and colors, in the text here. The theme here reminded me a bit of Dragons Love Tacos, although in that book the object was more to prevent one's draconite friends from igniting. Recommended to all young dragon lovers who enjoy humorous tales. ( )
