The Lovereading4Kids comment
With wonderful stylish artwork by an artist of rare talent, this book describes through images and enchanting text the many different varieties of dragon and exactly why the different owners love them more than any other. Ranging from a dragon as big as a village to a tiny dragon with whisper-thin wings and finally at the end of the book a page bursting with every dragon in the book.

Tell Me a Dragon by Jackie Morris
Everyone has their very own dragon, and this book describes many different varieties of the beast, showing in words and stunning pictures exactly why their owners find them so entrancing. They range from a dragon as big as a village to a tiny dragon with whisper-thin wings, from a snaggle-toothed dragon to a sea-dragon which races dolphins on the waves - ending in a page inhabited by every dragon in the book!
One of the absolute highlights of the autumn - the immensely talented Jackie Morris has produced a breathtaking picture book which teachers will fall upon. Superbly imaginative, rich in colour and movement, it will be used in the classroom for creative writing, drama, literacy, arts and oral skills, as well as being enjoyed in its own right as an example of the best in picture book writing and production. This is a magical book which children will delight in, and if it's not on the Kate Greenaway shortlist for 2009 I'll be amazed. -- Marilyn Brocklehurst Bookseller
The ultimate dragon book portrays every kind of dragon a child can imagine - wind dragons, star dragons, ice dragons, even dragons small enough to sit behind the ear - and it leaves the door open for more to be invented by the reader beside the tiny dragons being hatched on the final endpapers. Bookseller In this beautiful book children describe their own fantastical dragons, from the tiny, rainbow winged variety that whispers in ears to the dragon as big as a village with a tail as long as a river. Daily Telegraph Dragons generally get bad press, but author/illustrator Jackie Morris dispels their fearsome reputation with Tell Me a Dragon. Every kind of dragon, each accompanied by a child who describes the virtues of his or her particular dragon, is shown in splendid, colourful spreads. Irish Examiner
Nothing captures the imagination like dragons! Here is a whimsical gallery of dragons in every shape, size and temperament from a beast as big as a village to a tiny species with whisper-thin wings, a sea-dragon that races dolphins on the waves and more. Enchanting. ABC Best Books for Children
I liked this book, and I liked making up my own dragon at the end. Clara Belle, aged 4 Church Times
Children learn to read by talking about what is in the pictures first and they will want to talk about these breathtakingly atmospheric and soul-capturing illustrations because they are like magnets drawing the reader's eyes into every detail... A truly imagination-stirring read that will excite young readers, ignite their imaginations and those of the adults reading to/with them. Early Years Educator
Tell Me a Dragon is a beautiful bedtime story book, a great classroom aid and a feast for both adults and children. Western Telegraph
