Tom and the Dragon product reviews

When Tom wants to go and play by the pier, his mother warns him to stay away from the dragon that lurks there. But when Tom happens upon the dragon, he finds the dragon's mother has warned him to stay away from little boys!

A charming twist on a cautionary tale!

This is an enjoyable, friendly easy to read book about a boy (Tom) whose mother warns him about the dangers of playing with a dragon. Tom is filled with fear after the horrible rhyming tale his mother told him and panics when he is confronted by the dragon at the waterfront.

This is where the story takes a charming twist and the dragon is petrified of Tom, as the dragons mother herself had warned her son of the dangers of playing with little boys. Tom and the dragon become firm friends and then Tom's mother and the Dragon's mother learn to put their differences aside.

This book is great for kids who are scared of monsters, and shows a softer side of an often scary fairytale. My son liked this book as it is quite 'boyish'. Overall a very enjoyable book, would definitely recommend.

Product reviews for listing 6230: The Raven Cycle 3 - Blue Lily, Lily Blue -  Written by: Maggie Stiefvater

Product image for The Raven Cycle 3 - Blue Lily, Lily BlueBlue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.

The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost. Friends can betray. Mothers can disappear. Visions can mislead. Certainties can unravel.
