Let’s Dive Into The Story
It’s time for this There’s a Dragon in Your Book review to show you what you can expect from the story inside. It all starts with a cute little purple egg on the first page of the book and a few words under it. This is definitely enough to make you wonder what comes next.
The author reveals what kind of egg this is, a dragon egg, and warns the little ones to be careful while turning the pages. After the first turn, the dragon egg has hatched and an adorable baby dragon emerges from inside.
The reason that the following pages are even more exciting is that Tom has made this book to be super engaging and interactive as the kids need to put in the work to solve the problems that are presented before them in the following pages. After offering the chance to tickle the baby dragon’s cute little nose, it sneezes and accidentally sets the next page on fire – not literally of course. Now, the readers have to figure out a way to put out the fires before the whole book burns and disappears.
There are a couple of different ways that they try to do this but it only seems to be getting worse. They try to blow it out with the dragon, but the baby dragon only spreads the fire more and more. You can imagine how fun this would be for a young one who can’t resist an adorable baby dragon.
Figuring Out How to Stop the Fire
Next in our review follow even more exciting events. The next few tries can’t seem to put it out still and the story suggests that the kids use their hands to tap and tap until it disappears, but this only seems to be making the fire bigger and this attempt still doesn’t succeed.
The next thing that the story proposes to the children is to use their creative side and imagination to create a big balloon that is filled with water so that they can pop it and use the water from inside to hopefully put out these fires.
Finally, this works and you can imagine how cheerful this whole situation will be for any child that has put in the hard work into putting out these fires. And a little acting here and there as you read this fascinating book to them will definitely help with the laughing-out-loud part of this book as there are plenty of opportunities to act goofy.

After finishing this scrumptious treat, the baby dragon feels like going home and relaxing so he says goodbye and tries to fly off, but wait a minute, it seems that it can’t even take off from the ground and this just might be because of that tasty but large ice cream treat he ate just a while ago.
The author and the dragon ask for the children’s help one more time as they are supposed to flap the covers of the book up and down, just like the wings of the dragon, and help it to lift off and fly back home. Luckily for everyone, the last page of the book holds one more thrilling surprise for everyone, there are a ton of new dragon eggs that you get to see and all of them hatch too, revealing a bunch of even cuter and more adorable baby dragons that will just melt the heart of anyone away.
