Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Franklin the dragon loves stories and loves reading stories to people too, but everyone is too scared to even talk to him. One day, he meets a girl named Luna who, rather than being afraid, is fascinated to meet Franklin, having recently read all about dragons in one of her books. They instantly become friends and talk nonstop about what they've read: books about roller-skating, King Arthur, spiders, and how to do kung fu. Together they hatch a plan to share their love of books with others by opening a bookshop--a flying bookshop, that is--right on Franklin's back! Franklin, a well-read and peace-loving dragon, and Luna, a young girl with an independent spirit and an insatiable love of reading, make fantastic role models for young children.

    You'd think a dragon would have nothing to spread but hot air and terror, but this sweet-tempered book offers a dragon-sized lesson on friendship and open-mindedness. Franklin the dragon adores books and regularly reads to the bats and mice in his book-filled cave. But when he goes to the nearby village to read to people, it's always deserted (a clever double-page spread shows the frightened faces of villagers peering out from shop windows at their hulking visitor). One day, Franklin stumbles upon Luna, a young girl, reading in the woods. They're an instant book club, talking about the stories they love. Together, they hatch a plan to share stories with the villagers by attaching a bookcase and a couch to Franklin's back and turning him into a bookmobile. This book's wonderful resolution suggests that opening up to what may seem scary or strange can actually be life-enhancing. The artwork—combining gouache, watercolors, and colored pencils and a variety of double-page spreads and spot illustrations—exudes a friendly fairy-tale feel, filled with comic details that young readers will love.
