Book Description

Weepy is a dragon, sure, but the dragons nearby would agree that he doesn't act like a dragon at all. He's not angry, scary, and mean. He only eats vegetables with his sharp teeth. He uses his fire-breath as a nightlight because he's afraid of the dark. Worst of all, he tends to cry, something the other dragons - especially his powerful father - would never do! Weepy wants to be more "dragony," but he soon finds that being different has its advantages.

(Illustrated by Ed Jones)

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings on this one June 25, 2012
By new mom
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've got mixed feelings on this one. My kids loved the pictures, and were excited by a story about a dragon. Still, Weepy's dad comes off as very mean and Weepy leaves home. While he ends off finding happiness, my young kids were troubled by the angry dad and a young dragon never seeing his family again. The pictures were great, but I was reading this on a Kindle and the pictures and text weren't on the same page. My kids kept wanting to skip to the picture before I finished reading the text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful message February 8, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No less than five stars for this one. Weepy The Dragon is a wonderful, heartfelt book for children. The wonderful lesson in this book is that it's ok to be sensitive and different. There are people who will love you just as you are. Certainly a message every child should hear.

I loved the illustrations in the book. Weepy is absolutely adorable through all of his insecurities and his triumphs. I highly recommend this book to parents. It's one of those books you'll want to read over and over again with your child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable and Super-Cute February 8, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got a copy of Weepy the Dragon for my 6 year old niece who I have to babysit quite a lot. I love spending time with her and cuddling with her under a blanky is the best thing I can do after a long day. She enjoyed the story a lot and loved the character of Weepy. I found it adorable too. The message conveyed by the author is simple and truly beautiful. Also, the illustrations were beautiful and pumped life into the story.

Read this with your little ones to spend some fun and happy time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weepy April 12, 2014
By Tiffany
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book shows kids you cant always judge a book or rather
a dragon by its cover. It also shows how cruel words can harm even a dragon whose only fault is being good and kind. Weepy is determined to try and be a dragon like the rest but in the end Weepy wins and is shown he can be liked for who he is and just the way he is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good February 8, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A really fun way about a dragon who is different and sensitive and who learns how to accept himself. The book is well written and entertaining and my daughter loves it. The message it conveys is positive all the way and it is really fun to read. I would highly recommend this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Hit!!! December 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My three-year-old daughter LOVES this book. A cute story with a simple, but important moral (that it's okay to be different from your peers). The running commentary she gives in between pages is also incredibly cute and has made this one of my favorite books to read to her.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book deserves the 5-star rating because it is so cute. There was nothing to dislike about this delightful tale. I would reccommend it to anyone that enjoys a cute story to share with children or grandchildren. The "little ones" really enjoyed it. So did I.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Sad About This Ending February 9, 2015
By CC
Format:Paperback
Great little read for kids with a subtextual message about acceptance and difference give a great moment I'm sure after the read for discussion at an age-appropriate level about why people are different and the importance of accepting each person not for what you think they might be but actually who they are.

The artwork is worth the buy alone in my opinion it is crisp and very well done with enough detail to keep a child busy for a while after the read just enjoying a close up of the art and the detail. I thought the text was interesting and again written with the readers age in mind. J Hebert has created a great character and storyline to go with our dear Weepy.

You cheer for him and commiserate with his problems and issues very relatable and safe for kids to read, and the reader will get a kick out of the story as well. Good job, great story with a lot of laughs and pathos that allow for dissection of emotions and how thing make us feel. Win, win does what kid's book should do.

Entertains educates and explores I love this story!
