Max's Dragon By: Kate Banks Illustrated By: Boris Kulkikov
Max and his brothers Karl and Benjamin are out playing a game of croquet when Max spots something on the ground. It is an umbrella that has a dragon on it. Max puts it up and then makes a rhyme about his dragon. The cloud above him turns into a dragon cloud, but his brothers still do not believe him. Then the dragon cloud fights the a dinosaur cloud and the rain begins. It all is solved when Max and his brothers make rhymes to tell the storm to go away!
This was a beautiful story that showed that brothers can get along. It had wonderful pictures that told the story wonderfully! The way the boys had to work together was fun and the action of the clouds fighting made the story great. My students at school loved this book and so do my kids, so it is a great book for elementary reader.
I borrowed this from the school library.
