The Lovereading4Kids comment

Herb is a zany, vegetarian dragon and although I like nothing better than vegetables I’m not a vegetarian. However, I was hugely taken by this delightful story and wanted to ensure you knew about it as well.

This peace-loving vegetarian is determined to stand up for what he believes in, so join him on his fun-filled adventures and begin to understand the importance of tolerance and that everyone is different and how boring the world would be if we were all the same.

Synopsis

Herb, the Vegetarian Dragon by Jules Bass

The dragon who's not afraid to speak his mind. Herb faces a difficult choice, should he let other dragons rescue him and become a meat eater or should he stand by his principles and be fed to crocodiles? A funny, imaginative tale that teaches the importance of accepting others' differences.
