Book Description

Un déjeuner tout à fait ordinaire se transforme en une aventure magique de dragons!

Alfie est juste un petit garçon ordinaire - jusqu'à ce qu'il croque dans un sandwich jambon-fromage avec une moutarde si forte qu'il se transforme en dragon qui crache du feu!

Il devient bientôt ami avec un autre dragon dénommé Marty, qui lui montre que les dragons sont toujours occupés. Pour commencer, ils terrorisent des princesses, livrent bataille à des chevaliers et gardent un trésor. Mais saviez-vous aussi qu'ils savent faire d'excellentes pizzas? Ou bien qu'ils sauvent des fusées spatiales naufragées dans l'espace? Ou bien qu'ils sont responsables de chaque bain chaud que vous prenez avant de vous coucher? Et tous ce qu'ils demandent en échange, c'est une poignée de petites guimauves sucrées - car un dragon n'aime rien de mieux que des guimauves moelleuses et sucrées.

Alors si vous vous demandez ce qu'un dragon fait de ses journées, venez passer une journée avec Marty et Alfie et découvrez pourquoi un dragon ne se repose jamais!

Un projet marrant qui donne de la vie à Alfie et Marty!

Et si vous pourriez écrire une vraie lettre à votre caractère favori d'un livre d'enfants? À la fin de "Un dragon ne se repose jamais" vous pouvez bien sûr le faire... mais vous pourriez même recevoir quelque chose en retour! C'est un projet génial à faire avec votre enfant ou votre petit-fils/petite-fille... imaginez leur joie quand ils recevront une réponse d'Alfie et de Marty! Après tout, ce n'est pas tous les jours qu'on reçoit une lettre de la part d'un dragon ...

À propos de l'auteur

Quand Stéphanie Barrett était petite, elle ne se promenait pas avec un doudou ou une poupée, elle se promenait plutôt avec une copie de «Richard Scarry's Best Storybook Ever». Ce n'était pas doux et câlin, mais tout ça se compensait par ses histoires magiques et les illustrations épatantes.

Bientôt, elle commença à écrire de petites histoires sur du papier brouillon et des petits blocs-notes. Son amour des bouquins pour enfants n'a cessé de grandir depuis et elle adore partager ses livres avec les enfants de tous les âges. Elle vit en Floride centrale avec son mari, leur chien et leur chat.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so great for a French native speaker! September 11, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My 6 year old son loves dragons, so when I found this book & saw pretty good reviews, I jumped on it! I am French and speak French to my children. I am quite disappointed with this book. The story line is good, but the writing is not good enough for a native speaker. There are many grammatical errors and the way it is written really feels like it is translated from English. I guess my son doesn't know the difference, but it feels wrong to me to read a book with mistakes. Now, I know I should only order French books on or!

I am learning French and this book is really good for beginners. Even the story is quite entertaining. I guess for children it's perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little read January 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Awesome book for those who know some french or are wanting a good review.
Would not recommend for those who are barely starting out because the vocabulary is more difficult to understand

4.0 out of 5 stars great little french book May 17, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was given to my daughter for Easter. She is a college French major and she decides which books she likes to add to her collection. As a future teacher of French (hopefully) she found this book to meet her criteria. She loved the fact that at the end of the book you can write to the characters in the book. My college girl, of course wrote her letter in French. The reader is suppose to receive a response from the character. We are hoping that the return letter will be in French. If so......what a great teaching tool

5.0 out of 5 stars Parfait pour moi May 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm trying to learn French, and this was perfect for what I wanted. It was easy enough I could read it without constantly looking up words or puzzling out grammar, and it just plain made me grin. There's nothing like a delightful children's book for an adult who has a good excuse (like learning a language).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great first Translator book January 28, 2014

This book is a great first translator book, especially for kids. It is complex enough that it gives kids a challenge, but is very enjoyable at the same time!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great.
The print is crowded and unattractive on the page - if you are looking for French books for a baby, try a different one.

More About the Author

Stephanie Barrett realized at the ripe old age of eight that she wanted to become an author more than anything in the world. After college, Stephanie's love of children led her to teach preschool, where she drew constant inspiration for story ideas from the amazing children in her class.

The idea for A Dragon's Work Is Never Done, however, didn't come from one of Stephanie's preschool students. Instead, it came from a street food vendor selling sandwiches with mustard so spicy that it seemed entirely possible to turn into a full-fledged, fire-breathing dragon after taking a bite.

Stephanie lives with her husband, dog, and cat in central Florida.
