Review

"Odd encounters, chance meetings, what ifs,what nexts...thoseare the words that spring to mind while reading Gene Twaronite's DragonDaily News. From books that leak their words to a fig tree that reallypulls up roots and walks away, Twaronite's stories are sprinkled with the wackyand the weird--while generally being totally believable. Inspired in manyinstances by traditional tales or fables, the stories sparkle with unexpected twists--you'veheard about going hunting for tofu beasts, right? Then there are thoseidiosyncratic characters. From Stretch (a rubber boa who has grand adventureswhile stretched) to Snoop and Snort (dragon cub reporters in search of the truthabout those creatures called people), the characters drive the storiesforward, begging the reader to ponder what they might do next. If I were stilla classroom teacher, this is just the sort of book I'd share with my studentsto trigger their own imaginations. Instead, I'll settle for sharing it with mygrandkids as we wonder if tofu beasts might still be found somewhere--besides ina grocery store...."
 
Suzanne Barchers, former Managing Editor at Weekly Reader

"Dragon Daily News: Stories of Imagination for Children of All Ages written by Gene Twaronite is a delightful collection of short stories that introduce young readers to a creative mindset where imagination has no limits. This collection has within it secret life lessons to be learned. Young readers may not realize this when they are letting their imaginations take full effect in the fun and exciting stories The Dragon Daily News provides.

Young children love stories where there are no limits of imagination, and relatable elements of the story intrigue them to read more. This collection of stories has both. For example, learning how to cope with bullying not by the use of physical fighting, but with an intellectual approach. Also, reading and learning a new vocabulary with an adventurous, exciting tale of words flying out of their books due to a small glitch in a computer system.

Gene Twaronite's collection of short stories is ideal for parents and teachers to provide children with a way to learn imaginative play and creative thinking, as well as a new vocabulary. Adults who remember reading old folk tales, myths, and legends of mystical, exciting, adventurous places, will love this collection to read aloud to their children. Reading this exciting collection, I was taken back to my own childhood when times were simple and your imagination was the most important element in having fun."

From the Author

A special note to teachers and parents: I've included in the Introduction some background notes on the genesis of each story. You might also beinterested in the fact that the readability of these stories, according to theFlesch-Kinkaid Scale (Reading Level Statistics), ranges from 2.4 to 7.3, withan average of 4.5. Most young readers, along with those adults who have notforgotten how to read or what it feels like to be a child, should be able tohandle these stories. And for those adults who have forgotten what it feels like to be a child, maybethese stories will help you remember.
