Title: Do Not Bring Your Dragon to the Library
Author: Julie Gassman
I got sent a free ARC e-copy of this book from the publisher via Net Galley.
About the book:
Have you ever thought about bringing your dragon to the library? Don't do it! You might have the best intentions, but that dragon will cause nothing but trouble. Using rhyming text and a diverse cast of characters, this charming picture book will provide some important — and some not so important — library etiquette in a very entertaining way.
For ages 3-7.
About the Author:
The youngest in a family of nine children, Julie Gassman grew up in Howard, South Dakota. After college, she traded in small-town life for theworld of magazine publishing in New York City. She now lives in southern Minnesota with her husband and their three children.
About the Illustrator: After graduating from Art College in the UK, Andy begana career as a graphic designer in the video games industry, when it was very much in it’s infancy. He continued as a graphic designer for 14 years, until he decided togo back to his illustrative roots and try his hand at being a children’s book illustrator. Since 2002 he has produced work for picture books, educational books, advertising, and toy design. He has been a finalist, twice, in the “Language Learner Literature” Awards, and has worked for clients all over the world. He currently lives in a small tourist town on the West coast of Scotland, with his wife and three children.
I loved the illustrations by Andy Elkerton. I liked how it talked about going to the library and pointed out some of the library rules but with a fun twist. In fact, this would be a perfect book to read in a library group reading session.
