BeachBoundBooks is pleased to be coordinating a Blog Tour for the charming children’s book written by Valarie Budayr and illustrated by Michael Welply, Dragons are Real. The tour will run from May 9 – May 30, 2016
About the Book
What if I told you that all of the fairy tales, myths and legends that have been told about dragons over the years are WRONG? What if I told you that Dragons are indeed REAL and that they are different than you’ve ever imagined? Did you know that Dragons are the master of disguises? Did you know that they love sugar and sweets (at unacceptable levels) and will do anything for treats? Award winning author Valarie Budayr brings us this fairly true story based on her childhood friendship with a REAL live Dragon.
I should really say our review because I read it with my two sons! First of all, the artwork is vivid. My favorite pages are the dragon reading, because of course, I love reading! This book will amuse children.
The writing is clever. My older son particularly liked the part about dragons loving treats and smelling them from really far away. Dragons just want us to know the truth!
I also enjoyed the art of the aged book inside, like opening a book inside a book! And one more thing-I would definitely trust a dragon who wears glasses.
