The dragon books I selected this week were chosen because they winked at me from our new books shelf. But, as I searched for my third book of the week, I realized no dragon tribute week could go by without a nod to two of the masters of the picture book world. Audrey Wood and Mark Teague have both won over the hearts of picture book readers everywhere with such great books as The Napping House and Dear Mrs. LaRue: Letters from Obedience School and I felt it would be almost criminal not to include their phenomenal work The Flying Dragon Room. While this is an older book (first published in 1996) it well withstands the test of time. Wood’s creative, whimsical plot and Teague’s joyously exuberant illustrations combine for a moving journey into a child’s imagination.
Perfect for both storytime and for sharing one on one, I highly recommend The Flying Dragon Room!
