Title: Pegasus – A Dragon’s Tale
Author: Gina LoBiondo
“For hundreds of years tales of dragons have been told and cherished. What child hasn’t wished to have his or her own dragon or to fight the great fire-breathers? Pegasus – A Dragon’s Tale is the delightful, heartwarming story of two young bear cubs and the dragon they find that changes their lives forever.”
“Pegasus – A Dragon’s Tale” is a very cute fairy tale. It is a children’s book and fully illustrated by Stephanie Zuppo. I found the story to be original and one that children would love to hear as a bedtime story. The fact that the land in the book is made up by a kingdom of bears is sure to reign children in, and I found the element of them finding a dragon egg and raising the dragon to be adorable. It broke my heart when they had to let the dragon free, and I found myself rooting for the bears when the dragon comes back and they want to keep him. I am a sucker for fairy tales and this fairy tale did not disappoint. The writing was wonderful and simple, which is perfect for children’s stories. I just felt that the illustrations could have been better if they didn’t look so computer generated, but that is just a minor critique. I would happily buy this book for my children.
