Dragons: Father and Son

(3) K-3 Translated by Vanessa Miéville. Illustrated by Ronan Badel. A dragon father instructs his son to burn down houses in the nearby village: "It's tradition!" Instead, Drake makes friends with the villagers. His father is first disappointed then won over after receiving a magnificent portrait painted by one of the dragon-admiring schoolchildren. Character-rich pen-and-ink illustrations with humorous details accompany this entertaining, well-told story first published in France.
