Have you ever thought about bringing your dragon to the library? Don't do it! You might have the best intentions, but dragons 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. 

My Thoughts: 
I received a free temporary ecopy of this picture book from Netgalley and Capstone Young Readers in exchange for an honest review. 

Dragons do not belong at the library. They take up too much space, they are clumsy and have a habit of setting things on fire. Nope, there is absolutely no good reason to bring your dragon to the library. Please leave them at home. 

The text in this is pretty funny. I think children will have a lot of fun reading about these bad-mannered and destructive dragons and possibly learn a little something about library etiquette in the process. I may have to buy myself a copy to teach my own little 'bookdragon' a thing or two about what is and what isn't acceptable in a library! 

The illustrations are bright, colorful, and a lot of fun. I was so happy to see more than one dragon featured.
