"Never run out of chocolate again", September 6, 2013
Review of: Children's Book: Pete the amazing dragon
                         ------------------
By Grady Harp TOP 50 REVIEWER
                         ------------------

Up pops a delightful little children's book by Chen Nir and Tal Nir - a mother/daughter team with great promise in this genre. It is a brief but saucy little tale told in rhymes: the rhymes may stretch the imagination and definition of rhyming words, but that is part of what make this book so charming.

Pete the Amazon Dragon loves chocolate, in fact, he loves it so much that he decides to get a job so that he will have the funds to create a stash of chocolate to hide away. First he tries being a cook but (being a dragon) he has a problem with fire and ruins his job right away. He tries to sell newspapers on a route, but (being a dragon) his long claw nails ruin the papers he delivers and he is once again without a job. BUT he hears that the king's daughter has been kidnapped and even the bravest knights cannot rescue her. Pete knows this is a job for a dragon and he successfully rescues the little princess. Overjoyed, the king inquires about Pete's choice for reward - and Pete asks for a decree throughout the land that will make chocolate available to him wherever he goes.

The story is charming and the illustrations are excellent - just enough rich color and imagination to make each illustration something a child would want to draw. And guess what? There is a Free gift (along those lines) for everyone who buys this treasureable book! Highly recommended.

This is a delightful fairytale that your child maybe asking you to read over and over again...Maybe just to get some "chocolate"...The story rhymes perfectly and "sweetly" all the way to the happy ending..Illustrations are bright, colorful and "Pete the Amazing Dragon" is cute...Looks really nice on my niece's kindle..By the time I was finished reading to her we were both hungry with all the "chocolate", ice cream, apple pies and hotdogs mentioned in the story...

"Pete" is a red "Dragon" that just loves his sweet chocolate but has run out of money to buy some...He tries to find his own special talent as a cook and delivering newspapers but nothing works out..He returns to his cave sad..Suddenly he will hear that the little "Princess" has been captured and locked away in a "Tower"...The King and Queen are worried....Will "Pete the Amazing Dragon" be able to save the little "Princess" and find his own magical powers..

Maybe even get his chocolate....

This definitely held my nieces attention...Rhyming and Chocolate just the perfect funny mix......

Pete the Dragon was a chocoholic, but how could a dragon earn money to buy more chocolate? Using his natural abilities, getting jobs wasn't difficult, but keeping them wasn't so easy. While Pete is bemoaning his job prospects, a golden opportunity presents itself, and if Pete can make good, he'll never have to worry about getting chocolate again.

The rhyming text and color illustrations should appeal to any youngster's sense of adventure (and their love of chocolate!). The author says that the story was a family project, and I'm guessing that the daughter drew the illustrations, with the adults writing the text. It was a successful effort, since the book is quite entertaining.

My little man is sick, this book made him smile! THANK YOU for that. It was a really cute story and I had to read it twice. I know he'll want me to read it again.... The rhythms were cute and the story had a lesson! I'm glad I got this book!

I love dragons! I love chocolate! How could I resist this free Kindle book? I loved the cover picture, too. The rest was only okay. Sorry. I wanted more and bigger pictures and was annoyed by the writing that had many uncomfortable sentences. Rhyming 'well' with 'well' well...

When I review children's books I try to think of what my children would have liked, what would have spawned great conversations, what I would have enjoyed. I think mine would have gone back to books with more and bigger illustrations. I do like the fact that you can get the coloring book. That would have drawn us all into possible addicts of Pete the Dragon. This one just didn't work well as a Kindle book for me.

I liked this book very much! I think that this will be very beneficial for kids to read or hear someone read
to them. It's a very sweet story with a good moral lesson to it,too! I gave Tal five stars on account of her fine work.
and also great plot and what pictures she did have I thought was well done. I received this book from from Daily Free Deals. And this author has asked for high scores as well as to give her a review so here it is! By Angela

This is a really cute story for young children but it really needs an editor. Some words are used incorrectly, there are no periods or commas at all, and there's at least one part that makes no sense at all. It's the part where he gets his first job. I'll read it gain if my son wants me to but it could be so much better.

This book about the adventures of a dragon who loves chocolate is a real cutie. It makes for a nice bedtime read together parent and child. The colorful images are probably better shown on Kindle fire or on iPad and other handhelds but not so much on the black-and-white Kindle, it does come rather nice on a gray picture. However this story is not only about pictures and illustrations rather it is also a nice imaginative free-flowing adventure about a dragon. It says in the introduction that that was written by a mother and her daughter and one can imagine how it was done this way since it really has the look and feel of such a story and that's a big advantage - as it makes for a good line of reasoning when offering this book for your child.
It can be read alone by a seven-year-old with some help with maybe a bit difficult words or it can be right together as a bedtime story for lovely interaction between a parent and child.
If you read this far then I can summarize by saying that this is a lovely read and I highly recommend it.
