Me and My Dragon: Scared of Halloween Hardcover – August 1, 2013
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

PreS-Gr 2–In Me and My Dragon (Charlesbridge, 2011), a boy discusses the ins and outs of having a dragon for a pet. In this follow-up story, the boy and his dragon are having a great time. The two have everything in common–except a love for Halloween. While the boy is excited to trick-or-treat, the fire-breathing beast is petrified of the werewolves, zombies, and mummies they will encounter. After a comical montage of dressing the dragon in a series of costumes that simply will not work, the boy gets a great idea: he can be a knight and the dragon can trick-or-treat as himself. And because no one will know he is a real dragon, he can even pick out his own candy. The charm of this book is in the details. While the text is straightforward, the facial expressions and information delivered by the rich and bold Adobe Photoshop images demand a second and third reading.–Jennifer Miskec, Longwood University, Farmville, VAα(c) Copyright 2013.

The text is funny, entertaining and not at all overwhelming, and the conclusion of the story is highly satisfactory and very relatable. In short, it's perfect.
The artwork IS brilliant and hilarious. The facial expressions of the dragon are priceless. Every page made my son giggle. In short, it's perfect.
Our love for David Biedrzycki books started when my son met Mr. Biedrzycki a couple of years ago when he came to visit my son's school. He told the kids his story and showed them some of his early drawings that lead him to what he does today. He also talked about how he came up with the ideas of some of his most loved characters (dragon, lacewing, etc). This author was one of the reasons my son has such a love for drawing!
This new book is the continued story of the adventures of a little boy and his pet dragon at Halloween time. The story is great and the illustrations are fun, too!
Whenever a new David Biedrzycki comes out, we'll be adding it to our library!
