Review

A great little book that I shared with my niece. Dewi is a very smart Welsh Dragon, a curious little sleuth with good upbringing, who finds himself out to solve a mystery. Dewi meets several interesting characters that really had us laughing. This book is well written and flows easily along. Ms. Lyons conjured a great tale that is marvelously creative. My niece now loves this book and is begging for me to buy her a "Dewi the dragon" plush toy. Ms. Lyons, write another Dewi story and start making plush toys too! Most of all, thank you for a wonderful afternoon solving a mystery with my niece.

Dragons and a mystery along with many adventures make this book a delight to read. Which kid would not love to read and go along?

A beautiful, funny, witty and brave dragon and his wise friend Jones a wise chemistry loving Toad.

The delight with which Dewi embarks on his quest for finding the cause of the doom and gloom! His friends support him and his father too guides him to the right path.

This book is a very fast read, did not stop reading once I read the first chapter and the twists and turns of the plot kept me hooked.

Like all good stories for children, it has a good moral of helping others in trouble and stating their point in a subtle manner. Fighting the evil baron and his evil plans to fool the poor villagers with his poisoned corn and deceit make for a exciting read for children and adults too!

This is one book you would even enjoy reading to your kid; I would have loved to have more pictures of Dewi & Jones in action. They seem so cool and heroic as I read the book. Pictures would add to the story making it even better.

Children of ages 6 and above will love this book; in fact the dragon on the cover would be a favourite among them with his fire breathing antics. He takes help, asks for advice, is kind and generous and a good friend.

All qualities we would like to inculcate in our children and this book is a good way to get the message across.

An afternoon well spent with Dewi – the Welsh Dragon.

Format: Paperback
Dewi is a young Welsh dragon who saves a rat, discovers an evil plot, and brings the bad guy to justice with the help of several friends. The chain of events is set in motion when a rat falls out of the clear blue sky and smacks Dewi on the snout. As the story progresses, the reader discovers why (and how) a rat came to fall from the sky. It's a long story (okay, really it's a pretty short story, an adult can easily read it in under an hour), but it involves and evil baron with an even eviller get-rich plot.

Dewi is a great role-model character for kids - his immediate instinct is to be helpful, but when he needs assistance he's able to ask for it. His friends all pitch in and help in their own unique ways – reviving a thoroughly traumatized rat who's been through the wringer, doing scientific research on the baron's ghastly corn, jumping (literally) into the thick of things, or even just offering advice to help the dragon solve the mystery and stop the baron.

Certain aspects of the story were a little too silly for my tastes (and that says a lot, coming from me). There are a great many silly similes in this book, right from the very first page: "… as clean as a dog's licked bowl; as still as a pickle on a plate…" For that reason, I did put the book down more than once before getting past that first page before finally reading it all the way through. If you can get past the slightly over-the-top silliness, though, it's a cute and well-written story with good underlying morals.

I received this ebook in exchange for my honest review; all opinions are my own.

What I liked: This is a short and very cute story that I read to my nephew who seemed very entertained by this book. It has a cast of characters from a Welsh dragon named Dewi, to a goat named Billy Know-All and each of them are interesting in different ways. Dewi goes out of his way to help a rat he names Bomber after Bomber falls out of the sky. It takes a while to get to the point and this is the classic good vs. evil plot which is perfect for children. The descriptions are well done and painted a great image for both my nephew and I while reading it. My nephew really enjoyed the way things were described and while I found them a little corny I thought they worked well for this book.

What I didn't like: I found some of the vocabulary a little more advanced for someone my nephew's age (he's almost six) so I did have to explain a few words to him. The humor was a little dry to me and didn't really make my nephew laugh about it even though he laughed at a few other things.

Overall Review: With only minor setbacks about the book this is an entertaining read for young children. I think this would work well as a quick bedtime story as it took us only half an hour to read this and it kept my nephew's attention for most of the time.

Recommend?: Certainly, this would be good for parents to read to their children or for young readers!

Did you know rats can simply fall out of the sky? Neither does the sweet dragon Dewi until one plops on him. As a dragon, you'd think that meant dinner time for Dewi...but not this loving Dragon. He's off to solve a mystery and find out what is going on. Of course, he finds more than he ever dreamed.

Dewi is a wonderful dragon who will really reach out to kids 6+. Not only is he kind and sweet and a dragon (yes, dragons are simply cool creatures), but he sometimes feels that he's underestimated and is capable of more than the 'adult' world will give him credit for. Kids will love it when he goes on this mystery, knowing that if his dragon father or others really knew what he was up to, they'd put an end to it quick. This dragon trusts himself and encourages kids to believe in themselves and their abilities.

The writing is perfect for first readers as is the length. The settings are whimsical and place kids in a magical world. There's danger without going over-board, action without being scary and evil characters which won't leave nightmares.

Summed up, I can highly recommend this adventurous tale (and adorable dragon) to readers who love adventure and a lot of fun.
