Reviews from Around the World "This book is about a little boy who wakes up to find a dragon in his room one morning. He goes to tell his mom about it and she says, “There’s no such thing as a dragon”. So the boy, Billy, and his mother go throughout the day watching the dragon get bigger and bigger until he stands up and carries their house away like a shell on a snail. Once Billy and his mom recognize that this dragon is really real, he starts to shrink again. I remember reading this book many times at my grandma’s house. So many times that we brought the book home with us because we read it so many times. I would use this book to teach how important it is for everyone to be noticed and feel like they’re appreciated." - Lindsi, Goodreads "A very good children's book with interesting illustrations and a straightforward story about a nonexistent dragon. The end message about how issues can become big issues if you insist on ignoring them is a good one, and I enjoyed reading this to my younger two more than once." - Jacob, Goodreads
