Megan Amato reviews One hungry dragonthe new children’s book by Edinburgh-based author Alastair Chisholm.

It’s no secret that Edinburgh-based children’s author Alastair Chisholm loves dragons as much as his first Reader series, Dragon storm Full of tradition and popular among children aged six to eight. in One hungry dragon He’s addressing a younger audience with this wonderfully illustrated – you guessed it – book about a dragon whose hunger can’t be satisfied no matter how much it consumes.

Chisholm is clever at creating a book that is simple, engaging, and educational. From two sheep to ten little pigs, kids can giggle as they count the number of creatures this predatory dragon eats. Since it’s aimed at kids ages three to five, I love that – despite Bernardo’s penchant for eating whatever he sees – he’s not a terrifying character and even has a redemption arc encouraged by four “proper princesses” he had eaten earlier.

Award winning photographer small peas; (and many more), Alex Willmore’s signature bold and bright style turns Chisholm’s fun and quirky picture book into a visual feast. My favorite scene in the middle is when Bernardo devours mermaids. The contrast of colors and expressions on their faces – from Bernardo’s cheerful smile to the mermaids’ variegated fright – stand out despite the apparent simplicity of each figure.

I expect that One hungry dragon It will be a popular book with parents too, since it is not overly educational, the story is simple and entertaining without too many tongue twisters and the bright and fun illustrations will capture children’s attention.

One hungry dragon It will be published March 14 by Hodder Children’s Books.
