Ladybug Nominee Profile

What can be done with a dragon so terrible that he scribbles in books, burps in church, and burns all the marshmallows? An unlikely hero proves that stories are even more powerful than dragons in this book by Kelly DiPucchio and Greg Pizzoli. After reading the book you might want to try your hand at some dragon crafts. This is the first Ladybug nomination for both the author and illustrator.
"In naive, flattened cartoons, Pizzoli mixes modern and medieval with aplomb as Dragon TP’s a castle and spray paints “Dragon was here” on a wall underneath a posted notice from the king promising a reward to whomever stops Dragon. These pictures, combined with DiPucchio’s clearly disapproving narrator make Dragon’s transgressions all the funnier."

This is one of the ten titles nominated for the 2017 Ladybug Picture Book Award.
