Mi dragon y yo

  • 1795

Written & Illustrated by: David Biedrzycki

Everyone needs a pet dragon!

"So You Want A Pet?" reads the pamphlet in a young boy's hands.

Some children might beg their parents for a dog or cat, but this boy has his sights set on a pet dragon. The boy lists all the reasons he wants a pet dragon and describes how he would take care of it. He includes useful tips for selection (why you shouldn't choose a three-headed dragon), discipline (what to do if your dragon misbehaves), and diet (why you should NEVER give a dragon broccoli).

Listen to David talk about his books on Charlesbridge Unplugged.

Editorial Reviews:

School Library Journal

The charmingly goofy-looking red dragon readers were introduced to in Me and My Dragon (Charlesbridge, 2011) is ready to make new friends via this well-translated Spanish language edition. What is most endearing is that many of the little signs and asides, such as the writing on the shop windows, blackboard, and bag of dragon food, have also been translated. Such an eye to detail on the artwork itself is a welcome pleasure. The story is cute and the illustrations cuter. How does a determined boy take care of a dragon? ¡Con mucho cuidado y alegría!/With lots of care and happiness!
