This book caught me up and flew me along on the back of a frightening, jungle green dragon. I met a little boy wearing raincoat armor, who (much like myself) was bursting with creativity and afraid to let the world see it. I met Jade (the secret agent? alien? poet? knight?), the adorable bus driv...

I love this book because it is delightful. It is funn...

I wish this could be required reading in schools. I read it aloud to my 5 and 8 year old over 2 Saturdays. It would have been faster, but the times we had to stop for laughter were too many to track.

It was day three of cousin-togetherness. Six boys off-schedule, wound-up, unraveling; the fellowship was frayed. Mom suggested a movie, then changed her mind. Nana, would you read a book? Oh, dear. I grabbed my Kindle, swiped through the library and found Henry and the Chalk Dragon, a book I had...

There is so much to love about this book. It should be required reading for every teacher, parent, pastor, child, teen, and whatever-something. The writing is clever, laugh-out-loud funny, and moving. I am at once encouraged, challenged, and inspired. I cannot imagine you'll be disappointed, so p...

My son asked if we could read this book again before we were even done with it. And I didn't inwardly groan but agreed happily that we could. There is just so much to love about this book.
