Review of: Children's Book: Pete the amazing dragon
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.
