Editorial Reviews

Review

*“Eversole’s spare narrative mixes tongue-in-cheek exaggeration, childhood fears and adventure, inspiring Campbell to contrast the rough and the refined, designing detailed watercolor worlds brimming with humor and beauty. This primer on friendship wrapped in hijinks is paced for maximum pleasure.”

--Kirkus Reviews, November 15, 2011, *STAR

"Watercolor visions of both dragon realms combine traditional folk art and contemporary originality with cross-sectioned full-page images. Far-eastern architecture contrasts with European medieval castles, while modern technology, toys, and conveniences add a twist of the unexpected. Readers can search the pages for humorous scenes of modern comforts–a celebration with rock bands, karaoke, soccer for “tin” men and pizza for all. With an underlying message of the ills of prejudgment, this title should find a place in all libraries."

School Library Journal, March 2012

By E. R. Bird HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on May 10, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Sometimes the obvious can also be the impossible. Take dragons, for example. Now say you're a children's librarian and a five-year-old approaches your desk and asks you for "a dragon story". And not one of those two-bit cheapo dragon titles either. Nuh-uh. An honest-to-goodness straight up dragon tale with scales and fire and knights. The whole shebang. Now logically, what with dragons being this eternal bit of subject matter that's just as popular with the kids now as they were 100 years ago, you should be able to instantly name ten great dragon picture books off the top of your head. Maybe you can too. Maybe you're particularly gifted in that way. For my part, though, it's hard to think of iconic dragon-related picture books. "The Reluctant Dragon"? A great story but a bit long for a tot. "The Knight and the Dragon"? Wonderful but wordless. "The Paper Bag Princess"? Awesome story but can we work that word "dragon" into the title somewhere? No, as ridiculous as this may sound it can be really hard to think up dragon stories. The idea that you might give one to the kid that contains not one but TEN cool looking dragons alongside a fun story, an acknowledgement that dragons mean different things in different cultures, plenty of action and plenty of humor . . . well basically just sign me up for some of that!Read more ›

Scott C's illustrations motivated me to order this book! And I was not disappointed at all. His style is loose, carefree and spontaneous, but also very detailed. The combination really works. Every page would make a great framed print to hang on the wall. Beautiful book!

Do you love silly dragon books? If you do, you should read East Dragon West Dragon by Robyn Eversole. The book is about two dragons: the east dragon and the west dragon. The west dragon lives in a cave near a castle. It is the kind of dragon that is in fairy tales where a dragon fights knights. The east dragon is a Chinese dragon and lives in peace in a palace with a friendly emperor and nine Chinese dragons. But the east dragon and the west dragon don't get along together. This book is funny and fun to read.

One reason why this book is funny and fun to read is that the illustrations are funny. Examples of funny illustrations are pirates, dragons playing video games, or knights who can't use chopsticks.

One final reason why the book is great to read is it's not a scary or violent book. Even though there's a little bit of fighting, there is no extreme violence. I think readers age six or higher would like this book.

Next time you look for a book to read, pick East Dragon West Dragon by Robyn Eversole.

This is a great story about how misunderstandings and our fears can lead us to make poor decisions and even fear that which we do not know. and my daughter loved the drawings of the little tiny knights. lol

As a teacher and traveller I was aware of the dichotomy between eastern and western ideas about dragons. I am delighted to find a book for children on the subject.
