Dragons are Real Blog Tour: Review & $100 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

What we know about dragons are mainly sourced from myths, legends and folk tales. Dragons are associated with different images and characteristics in different cultures. Whether you think of dragons as evil monsters or symbols of power and noble decent, you probably believe them to be only imaginary. The author of children's picture book Dragons are Real suggests however, that dragons do exist and that they are quite different from what we've learned before.

About the Book

What if I told you that all of the fairy tales, myths and legends that have been told about dragons over the years are WRONG? What if I told you that Dragons are indeed REAL and that they are different than you've ever imagined? Did you know that Dragons are the master of disguises? Did you know that they love sugar and sweets (at unacceptable levels) and will do anything for treats? Award winning author Valarie Budayr brings us this fairly true story based on her childhood friendship with a REAL live Dragon.

My Review
Dragons are Real is a short and delightful read for any dragon lovers, young and old alike. It starts by overturning all the stereotypical images of a dragon as depicted in (Western) myths and legends. It continues by revealing what real dragons are like through cute, colorful illustrations and kid-friendly, colloquial language. The readers are sure to be amazed by those fun facts about the friendly, human-like, REAL dragons. The variation in fonts, colors, and sizes of the text adds to the fun of reading and makes it super easy for young readers not to miss anything important. It's a very unique book that takes a life of its own. Read it and you'll love it!

About the Illustrator

Michael Welply was born in London in 1948. The family moved to Winnipeg, Canada, in 1950. He studied art in Winnipeg and then in Paris, but his idea of living from the sales of his paintings is somewhat compromised by the lack of buyers. He started his career as an illustrator in 1977 in London. In 1981 he returned to live in France with his American wife and their two children. Since then he has worked for publishers in both Europe and North America. To date he has illustrated over 80 books and more than 100 covers, in a wide range of subjects extending from detailed non-fiction to juvenile and adult fiction in the realms of fantasy, mythology, science fiction and fairy tales.
