Crispin Blaze has a very important day coming up. It will be his 7th birthday, the day when dragons can finally breathe fire! But when it is time for Crispin to light his birthday candles . . . . .

What comes out? Pick up a copy of Not Your Typical Dragon and find out!

This is a great book for children who feel that they are a little bit different and don't fit in.  It is funny and lets kids know that friendships can be found even if you're not like everyone else. It also teaches  that diversity is an important part of life, as in the end Crispin's difference is what saves the day. I also like how, despite the fact that Crispin can't breathe fire like his father and his grandfather and his great grandfather before him, his family loves him and stands up for him when he is ridiculed.

Not Your Typical Dragon is an all-around great book for any child's library.

Happy Reading!
