Not Your Typical Dragon by Dan Bar-el - ESSENTIAL

Bar-el, Dan Not Your Typical Dragon, illustrated by Tim Bowers.  Viking (Penguin), 2013.  $17.  PICTURE BOOK.  978-0670014026

Content: G.  

When little Crispin, a dragon, tries to breathe fire for the first time, he gets whipped cream instead.  Try as he might, he can breathe pretty much anything but fire.  When the other little dragons breathe fire, he breathes marshmallows.  When the knight tries to teach him the right fierce attitude, Crispin breathes teddy bears.  But, even though it isn’t fire Crispin breathes, just maybe it is the thing that is needed instead.  

Cute and clever and so much fun!
