Oh So Brave Dragon by David Kirk


Oh So Brave Dragon by David Kirk

Dragon knows he is supposed to be brave - because that's what dragons do. He's so brave and valiant, he's ready to try out his fearsome roar! But when he hears something that scares him, he turns to his forest friends to find the noise, and to help him be brave. Young readers will relate to Dragon's fears, and delight in his quest to be brave. Bestselling author/artist David Kirk, creator of the popular Miss Spider series, has created another beautiful, meaningful picture book to follow Oh So Tiny Bunny.


The adorable and energetic characters, along with themes of fear, bravery, and friendship, will make this a popular title with preschoolers . . . Kirk's lustrous images perfectly capture expressions of surprise, fear, and curiosity. School Library Journal A young, ruby-red dragon with emerald eyes explores the meanings of bravery and fear in this sequel to Oh So Tiny Bunny . . . An engagingly subtle way to convey the power of friends in helping us face our fears, real or not. Kirkus Reviews Of course, a dragon is nothing without a mighty roar. But did that scary roar belong to the dragon or to a monster? Suddenly, the dragon's protective side is on display; he gathers a cluster of forest animals in his big wings, and together they roar loudly (and repeatedly) to scare away the imagined monster. Rest assured: children will be roaring right along with them. Publishers Weekly Kirk's illustrations have bright colors and soft edges much like his Miss Spider series. Children's Literature
