The Lovereading4Kids comment
Enter a fascinating, ornately drawn cityscape and help a boy find his dragon while counting objects from hot dogs to traffic lights. A little boy has lost his pet dragon amongst a huge city, and is travelling all over town looking for him. Could he have stopped for a hot dog? Maybe he went to see the monkeys in the park or stopped for a swim? Or did he take a taxi to the other side of town? As long as he hasn’t started a fire somewhere...
Adults will have just as much fun as children with this book – the pages are crammed with exquisite hidden details to spot and brilliant flashes of humour.

Have You Seen My Dragon? by Steve Light
Steve Light's masterful pen-and-ink illustrations, decorated with meticulous splashes of colour, elevate this counting book (numbers 1-20) to new heights.
Steve Light's amazing skill with pen and ink is beautifully showcased here. It entertainingly incorporates a seek-and-find element (although finding the dragon isn't very difficult!) within a counting book - with both number word and numeral appearing on each spread. Unlike many counting books, this one goes from 1 to 20, making it suitable for slightly older children. The city setting is perfect for countable urban icons, which appear in colour amid the black-and-white illustrations...buses, taxis, manhole covers, books, bicycles and much more.
“Lots for young readers to see and count.” Kirkus Reviews
“Details missed the first time through the book will bring readers back for more.” Publishers Weekly
