KIRKUS REVIEW

A sweet polka-dotted dragon just wants to cuddle—“Who wants a dragon? A lost baby dragon, alone in the night?”—but everyone he meets runs away in fear. Even though he’s pink and very cute, he still manages to knock a witch from her broom, frighten a knight, muddy a princess’s gown, and give a king and queen reason to hide behind their thrones. When even a fairy refuses his pleas, he begins to despair. But flying in from high in the sky is the one who can love him the best: his mother. Cuddled in her arms, the little dragon falls asleep contented. Whimsical, brightly colored pastel drawings accompany the rhythmic verses, lending an easy read-aloud feature to a story that is sure to inspire a bedtime cuddle. Endearing. (Picture book. 3-6)
