Description - The Trouble with Dragons by Debi Gliori

The world is populated by some beastly dragons who care nothing for how much they pollute the oceans, chop down the trees, gobble up all the food and use everything up without stopping to think. Those dragons need to wake up to what they are doing to their world before it is too late ...An energy-filled picture book that addresses concerns about the environment in the most child-centric and delightful way possible.

Book Review: Trouble with Dragons by Debi Gliori - Reviewed by (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.
