I liked this book for multiple reasons. The pictures are very original and colorful and large enough for a child to examine closely and enjoy. The story was well written and moralistic (and has a dragon...who doesn't love those.) I read this story to my kids and they understood the message easily and it even prompted a discussion about why it is wrong to take things that don't belong to you. I always like it when a book really interests my children and makes them think about a lesson or moral and this book did just that. We really enjoyed this book. I think a new reader would have an easy time with this book as the words are all pretty basic. Nice book, we liked it.
The illustrations are colorful and appealing- one big picture to go with every scene. A perfect book for children aged from 2 years up to the read-it-yourself age. The story is delightful and vividly imaginative; the exciting tale revolving around the bear's kindness, innkeeper's mischief and the dragon's magical gifts, is a great demonstration of the saying "what goes around comes around". An instant favorite for my 5-year-old -all the kids are surely going to love this story! I enjoyed this story as well. The writing style is comparable to Enid Blyton's- reminded me of my own childhood days! Keep writing Rachel Yu, we certainly want more and more from you!
I downloaded this story on my Kindle fire for my nephew (age 7) to read to me. The story is pretty good and the artwork is colorful. BUT- I wish they would have put the text first, then the picture. It was awkward to turn the page and see a picture, turn it again to read about what's happening in the picture, then go back to look at the picture again and talk about it, then have to skip three pages forward to the next section of text. Also, having the picture first gave away what was about to happen, and since he's a young reader I wanted him to discover the surprises through the text not the pictures.
