Twig has started reading my childhood books, and she has discovered There’s No Such Thing as a Dragon.
This book is about a squee-cute dragon who starts getting larger in an attempt to be noticed… after all, if there’s no such thing as a dragon, everyone is going to go quite out of their way to ignore it. Twig especially likes the part when (spoiler alert) “DRAGON EAT THE PANCAKES!”
My copy which was published in the late 70′s has a charming stain on it which is either from water damage in the basement or (likelier) my mom spilling coffee on it in the early 80′s. Look, it even has the 95 cent price on it. I feel old.
Imagine my excitement (and Twig’s) when we discovered it has been reprinted… with additional cute drawings, glossy pages, and no coffee stains.
Remember, folks, it’s never too early to talk to your children about dragons.
Full Disclosure: We got paid zero money for recommending this book. Unfortunate, really.
