Dragons Eat Noodles on Tuesdays

900 (2)

You know, sometimes you just want a really, really entertaining,  fun book that will make kids laugh and have a great time and heck, maybe even catch on to the amazing realization that books are incredibly fabulous.

Ta da!  Here is said book. It's written by a former elementary school teacher so well, you know, he's had to arm-wrestle a few wild ones in his day.

Open to page one and discover a blue member of an unknown species - aka a monster-  who welcomes you in to the book and then announces, The End.  He's in story trouble here. Has no idea about how to tell a story. Lucky for all of us in comes a yellow creature - also an aka monster - who is born to tell a great story.....welllll...maybe it will take both of them. (It does.)

The real story is born from the two brains.  This story involves a dragon who is looking for lunch.  It also has diversity and a heroine, two musts.

The dragon is poised, mouth wide-open, to eat a cowardly knight when suddenly the heroine arrives with a powerful weapon...

I leave it to you.  If you've been in search of bonafide fun and a book with some twists and some hoots, here ya go.  Woohooo!!!

"Once upon a time," begins the big blue monster who is trying to tell a fabulous story. "It needs to be about a kid who is eaten by a dragon," he insists.

But his little monster friend is not convinced that this is a good idea. "Dragon stories usually don't end well," he warns.

As the two monsters argue over how the story should go, a hungry dragon named Dennis is listening nearby. Dennis knows exactly how this story should go... And by the way, what day is it?

Watch out!--from the publisher
