Dragon Loves Penguin by Debi Gliori (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

10th October 2014, Bloomsbury Children's, 32 pages, Hardback, Review copy 

Content: oodles of cuteness! 

Summary from Bloomsbury
It's bedtime in the land of ice and snow.
"Night, night,” says Bib's mummy.
“Sleep tight,” says Bib's daddy.
But Bib has a better plan.
“Please,” says Bib, “can I have a story? The one about dragons.”

And so begins the heartwarming tale of a dragon in need of an egg and an abandoned egg in need of a mummy. It seems like the perfect fit, but what happens when that egg hatches and the little baby doesn't look like all the other dragons (in fact, he looks remarkably like a penguin)? Of course, his mummy loves him no matter what. But the other babies aren't so sure. Little do they know that being different can be good and soon their little feathered friend is saving the day.

Nayuleska's thoughts
This is by far the best of Debi's book ever! It's super mega cute – just look at the adorable baby penguin. There is constant cuteness as the story progresses, with a huge plot twist which took me happily by surprise. That twist is why I love Debi's work as it's filled with unexpected outcomes which are always positive. A feel good read which isn't leaving my room!
