Blog tour: I'm a Dragon, You see by David Kirkman (Children's, Picturebook, 10E/10E)

June 2018, Clink Street Publishing, 32 pages, Paperback, Review copy

Book Summary
Have you ever wondered what a Dragon likes to do for fun? Or what he might look like? Even what he likes to eat. Is it ice cream or pasta? Then ‘I am a Dragon you see’ will reveal all these mysteries and more. Go on an adventure with a fun repeating rhyme and colourful illustrations. A fun way of learning about the importance of friendship and kindness.
Nayu's thoughts
I'm rather partial to cute dragons, stemming from one of my favourite childhood reads (which has now got it's own TV show) which you can see in the suggested read part of this review, so saying yes was the only answer I had when asked if I wanted to review this book. I love how the dragon reveals what she likes and activities she enjoys through what is a monologue, with a different background and simple images on one page which gorgeously coloured dragon filled pages on the next. This helped give an idea of the dragon's size, because it compares objects to itself, which I think helps the reader understand it better. 

I like how different fonts are used for the page, as well as various colours so every page is new and unexpected. The main illustration style is brightly coloured, making the dragon's life seem rich and exciting. This is certainly a new favourite among my dragon books-go make it one of yours too! I'm interested in seeing what David works on next! I would like at least one more book about this dragon, because I'm sure it has many adventures waiting to be discovered.
