There are No Dragons in This Book

In this book you are guaranteed not to find any dragons. . . .

A clever interactive picture book—sure to keep kids laughing as they look for dragons.

There are no dragons in this book! Wait, is that really true? There was one right here, wasn’t there? Was he hiding in the attic? What do you mean, he’s not alone? Come on, let’s give the book a good shake and see what happens!

Donna Lambo-Weidner’s debut picture book—filled with humor (and dragons)—encourages close observation and discovery. Carla Haslbauer’s cheeky, scurrying illustrations are chock-full of funny details and metafictional allusions.

Children will love the contradictions throughout, as well as the comparisons that give life to the narrator’s case. A combination of story and mystery, this book is a grand addition to any children’s collection.
School Library Journal

A sweetly offbeat adventure that will have readers peering into their toilets for a dragon of their own.
Kirkus Reviews

This magical picture book will quickly become a frequent storytime selection.
Foreword Reviews

This brought me back to my childhood because it reminded me of "There's No Such Things as a Dragon" by Jack Kent. I loved finding the dragon on each page and the family's exasperation at dealing with it; but overall it's funny and cute.
