Book Review: Trouble with Dragons by Debi Gliori - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (15 Apr 2013)
I was quite excited to read this book to my child. Trouble with Dragons has a great cover and I thought it would be an exciting, silly, fun children's book. However, after starting to read it this book has another agenda. It has a hidden message and double meanings.
The book has cleverly disguised messages about the environment but referring to dragons. Its an interesting concept and probably more aimed at the adults rather than the children which no doubt the subtle message will go over there head. The illustrations are bright and colorful, I just dont like hidden books with agendas.
