School Days For Dragons

Writer Deborah Aronson and Illustrator Colin Jack successfully collaborate again on a bright and witty sequel for children, "Dragons From Mars Go to School." In Ms. Aronson's first rhyming book in the series, "Dragons From Mars," we met Molly and Fred, the endearing Mars' dragons as well as Nathaniel, their kind friend from Earth.

"Dragons From Mars Go to School," can be read as a sequel or a stand-alone book. It reveals the hilarious adventures of the trio when Nathaniel brings Molly and Fred to school. Ms. Aronson cleverly crafts the rhythm and rhyme scheme as she does in all of her books for children. Aronson's gentle sensibilities guide Illustrator, Colin Jack, to bring her vision brilliantly alive in vivid hues and creative illustrations. This team never ceases to amaze.

Molly and Fred's whimsical and light-hearted antics sweep children away into a colorful and imaginative dream world. This book is delightfully charming and refreshing.

When Dragons Come for a Visit

Dragons from Mars was such a beautifully illustrated story. I have never read a book illustrated by Colin Jack but I am absolutely in love with his style of art. The amount of detail that went in to each picture is simply amazing. No detail was overlooked, and you can see the amount of work that went in to each and every picture. This combined with the lyrical flow of the story really make this one stand out amongst all the dragon books out there. The rhyming was well done and made this book easy to read. It's a fun one to read aloud to your kids. Kids of any age will enjoy this. Especially with the amount of havoc they wreak when coming to Earth. A funny story with adorable pictures makes this story one that parents and children alike will love. Deborah and Colin work very well together and I can't wait to see more stories about Dragons!

Where's My Tushy? Review

This rhymed fable of a town where the tushies desert their owners for a little R & R is just what young kids will adore while adults won't snore. The illustrations present plenty of humor on their own, with lots for kids to discover and chortle at on each page. Aronson, on her first time out, has hit a bulls-eye; this is the kind of book that children will request over and over...and over...
