When a Dragon Moves In by Jodi Moore –ADVISABLE

Moore, Jodi When a Dragon Moves In Flashlight Press, 2011. $16.95 PICTURE BOOK
A little boy with a big imagination builds a sandcastle at the beach, and guess who moves in? A dragon, that’s who. This dragon adds to the fun and the mischief of the day. When the dragon gets the little boy in enough trouble, its time to kick him out and knock down the sandcastle, at least for that day.
This is a really cute book that allows readers to question imagination vs. reality. It sort of reminds me of Me and My Dragon by David Biedrzycki. The illustrations are stellar and I think the cover appeal alone will see this book highly circulated.
