    It's Ame D., how bad can it be? The book itself has one bad situation: remember that wish for a unicorn? Well if you thought that was bad, find out what happens when our protagonist wishes for a dragon! But it is just 1000% fun fun fun as you laugh (and sigh at the crazy end...oh Ame! Just tell the kiddo to wish for one of your books, it will be safer!) your way through this latest Dyckman gem.

    I still want a dragon minus that one little problem mentioned. There might have been more than one but we can handle it. Adorable book! Buy it, plan to read it to your class (yes you need your own copy) and have fun with it. Must purchase for school and classroom libraries.
