This book is an ultimate story-time favorite of mine. The book starts innocently enough when on the first page- a dragon egg begins to hatch! But be careful- this is one ticklish dragon! And dragons sneeze fire when tickled! Suddenly, the book is engulfed in adorable, yet ferocious, flame as readers must join together in helping put the flames out. Each page turn and colorful illustration presents the reader with an opportunity to participate and laugh along with this fantastic and delightful book! The board book version is perfect for toddlers but the hardcover version is great for sharing. -Reviewed by Maddi
