Guess What I Found in Dragon Wood by Timothy Knapman

Review by Gayle Surrette
Bloomsbury Hardcover  ISBN/ITEM#: 9781599901909

The title and book cover lead the reader to have certain expectations of the story. For example, what parent hasn't heard the "look what followed me home" version of finding a pet. However, Knapman manages a twist on page two that keeps you reading and enjoying adventures of the dragon and Benjamin.

The drawings are colorful and filled with tiny details that cause you to linger over the page. While the story is an interesting twist on expectations, it's also a great book for reading to children. There's ample opportunity for questions and discussion and what ifs.

A winning book is one that leaves the child with a bit of wonder and a desire to hear it again. Guess What I Found in Dragon Wood may just have that "read it again" appeal.
