When a Dragon Moves In
Howard McWilliam, illustrator
Genre: children's picture book
Pages: 32 pages
Summer is here and many are making plans to visit the beach. When a Dragon Moves In, is a story about a little boy who builds the perfect sand castle. Of course if you build a perfect sand castle a dragon will move in. The little boy has fun with his dragon, until he gets the little boy in trouble.
I loved this book. The illustrations are bold, bright, and colorful. They follow the story beautifully. As the child reads, or is read to, the illustrations tell a secondary story. It is funny and brings back memories from my own childhood. I could have used a dragon!
It's a perfect read for summer.
