    I have to say, this is a weird little book I don t think it s really appropriate for its intended audience, and I don t really feel comfortable recommending it in the MeToo era.The plot premise is all over the place At first, it seems like a story about a little dragon awakening to feelings of love lust But then it turns into a story about bullying So I m really not sure what the point was supposed to be.I had problems almost from the beginning, when Violet kisses Drake on the snout without his permission I know this is something little kids sometimes do, and this is why teaching about consent early is an important thing Poor Drake is so hot and confused , and he ends up flying around and breathing fire which appears to be what happens when dragons get aroused, if his father s story about meeting his mother is anything to go by I really didn t like the passage that read My friend Violet kissed me It didn t hurt In fact it felt soft.What a horrible message to give kids who might be subjected to sexual abuse If it doesn t physically hurt, it s okay I was just as confused as Drake for much of the rest of the book He seems to be most worried about his body s reaction to the kiss, and not the fact that his so called friend put him in an uncomfortable position to begin with Everything is fixed at the end with another kiss, this time from Drake, to which Violet gives consent I have to wonder if the genders were reversed, wo...

    I really wanted to love this, especially with the cute cover and title, but it left me frustrated on many fronts I almost feel like the cover had to have been designed by a different artist, since it looks nothing like the internal artwork does at least, not to me The interior artwork has none of that detail, nor any real facial expressions As for the story, there is way too much telling not enough showing in the actual storyline and text for me, especially in the dialogue, and this has far too many passive sentences I prefer a active story The writing isn t great, and the story isn t well constructed It also feels like this story is forced, instead of that it just flows naturally, and that effects the overall pacing, which is slow, even for such a short book The artwork is a bit too blurry for me, and it s very difficult to see expressions on the characters faces I think this is a stylistic choice, and maybe it just didn t really work for me It s pretty but so indistinct that it s almost a struggle to understand and visualize the scene, even though it is right in front of me I don t mind some impressionism in the art gallery, but since picture books require world building, I struggled with this My brain keeps trying to fill in all the gaps and missing information, in order to help me understand the story, and that ends up be...

    This is a cute story about a dragon and young girl sharing a kiss and how it makes them feel I am not sure about this story I read it to my grandson and he kept telling me that you re only supposed to kiss people in your family Other people want their space and don t like being hugged and kissed without ask...

    I love the illustrations style a lot, but the story well I didn t rely find it relevant I guess I would say There is some humor that might work well with the kids but in term of story this wasn t what I m looking for when I think about good children book

    Originally published on my blog Nonstop Reader Dragons in Love is a cute illustrated story for young readers The illustrations by Ronan Badel are sweet and whimsical.Released 15th Jan 2019 from Quarto on their words pictures imprint, it s 32 pages and available in hardcover board format It was originally published in 2014 in French and translated into the English by Vanessa Mi ville The text has been translated very well although it does have nuances of cadence in language from the French which I found charming.I have to admit, I found the art wonderful In fact, I spent a little while online trying to find the artist s other work in order to possibly obtain prints or other graphics from M Badel So, the art is superlative and detailed enough to provide amusement to both young readers and their adults.There are some lovely aspects to the story itself The dragons in the story appear to be a solo dad and son family unit Dad is willing and able to talk about feelings and life experiences with Drake, his son, and ...

    Dragons in Love made me miss Dragon Tales so much The reminiscing is real Did they ever put that show on dvd Back to Dragons in Love, I didn t really like it Don t get me wrong, it s a cute book with cute illustrations I just don t think the theme is the right one for the audience it s aimed at This is a book I would pick up for my 5 year old nephew because he loves dragons and dinosaurs but he s definitely not thinking about first kisses He would want the book to see the cool dragon have an adventure or someth...

    I just can t recommend this book The illustrations are colorful and nice but the narration suggests violence is okay Drake the Dragon receives a kiss and uncontrollably, spouts fire that burns down a building according to the illustration though that was an accident Drake s father explains that the kiss made him feel love sexual feelings Breathing fire is the result of the feeling Later, Drake shoots fire at a bully, out of anger, presumably to protect help Violet, the girl that ki...

    Four and a half stars.Drake the dragon likes playing with the human children not as in playing with his food, but playing football with them In goal, in fact But when one of them kisses him he really doesn t understand what is going on This second look at how we might have to do what seems counter to our intuitions follows on from a lovely debut dragon child decides not to burn and pillage everything , and proves there could well be a larger series to come, for it surely could run and run It s a simple lesson for the young reader about one instance of interacting with other people, and once again daddy dragon is there to ...
