      Ummmmm.So, this book is about a terrible dragon. And by "terrible," I mean he does stuff like TP the castle and spit on cupcakes.And he burped in church. Loudly. Honestly, that's terrible AND rude.??? WTF? Why is a dragon going to church?The book is also strange because it mixes past and present. For instance, this is supposed to be a Medieval kingdom with princesses, knights, and moats but there are also Crayola crayons and baby strollers and spray paint cans.I don't like the illustrations and [...]

      This would have been 5 stars, but the ending fell a bit flat for me. Otherwise, I LOVED everything about this book, and it made me laugh several times. Clever, about the boy and how he tamed the Terrible Dragon.

      What a fun picture book this is! While the dragon in this story is terrible, the awful things he does are pretty funny and will have young readers giggling out loud: pantsing the royal guards, TPing the royal castle, spitting on cupcakes, etc. But rather than giving up, the villagers keep trying to come up with ways to tame the naughty dragon. Finally, one young man comes up with a unique way to win the dragon over. This story could lend itself to writing projects to come up with other stories t [...]

      Dragon behaves terribly. He spits on cupcakes, plays tricks on people, and takes candy from baby unicorns. The king and townspeople are very frustrated and angry with the dragon and seek to tame the dragon. But they fail. Only when a young lad uses a story to catch the dragon's attention does it become possible to tame this dragon's terrible behavior. DiPucchio has written a book that would work well for storytimes about dragons, the power of story, and making friends. Pizzoli's adorable illustr [...]

      Loved this!!!! This would be so much fun to read as a storytime. It is interactive and AWESOME!!! I would buy this for myself as well as someone else. What more can I say.

    6. Shawn Thrasher on said:

      This dragon is a complete and total brat. He even spits on cupcakes, which is terrible and vile (Ariana Grande knows all about this). After everyone in the whole kingdom tries their hand at taming this terrible beast, one little boy has an ingenious idea. This book is cute AF. Greg Pizzoli’s illustrations are a perfect match for Kelly DiPucchio’s prose.

      Kelly DiPucchio is not only prolific she is hilarious. I am a fan of all of her works but Dragon Was Terrible may be my new fav. It is laugh out loud funny-a pleasure for children and adults. Definitely a repeat read and one of the funniest and most clever children's picture books that I have read in quite some time. The illustrations are by the super talented and awesome Greg Pizzoli. Love that guy. The art is exactly perfect for the story. Can't wait to see what DiPucchio and Pizzoli come up w [...]

      Some of it was predictable and some of it wasn't but it was cute, with a nice message: you don't have to fight to stop someone's bad behavior. Also, books are wonderful; a message I can heartily endorse. :D But, the messages are not heavy handed. The story is humorous, and told in a casual, chatty style. I read this with my class of one and two year olds, and it was too long for them. I think it would work well for children in preschool, kindergarten, or early elementary.

      My four year old loved talking about what dragon was doing wrong - Stealing candy! Stomping flowers! - along with the solution to dragon's terribleness. The muted color palette and illustrations are also adorable.

    10. Ruth on said:

      This book is perfect. A simple text combined with simple and charming illustrations make a story that left me in giggles. And besides, Dragon gets a redemption arc. So, if you loved The Reluctant Dragon, you'll also adore this one.

    11. Megan on said:

      so delightful! also I really appreciate the nod to a D&D party halfway through c:

      Seemed to take a bit too long to get to the resolution, but it was entertaining and funny all the way through, so it's forgivable. I love Pizzoli's drawings as usual.

      Easily one of the cutest books I have ever read.I might actually need to own this!

      If you're like, "Oh, cute! A kid's book about being rude, how rude could this dragon possibly get?":He spits on someone's cupcake.Then hestealsa babyunicorn'scandy.This dragon is a total jerk.

    15. Katy on said:

      Honestly, this book is amazing (and hilarious). Great for any age. Will save for a future storytime.

    16. Anna on said:

      I read this in very much the same vein as "Dragons Love Tacos." The humor felt similar. I enjoyed that reading ultimately saved the day :)

    17. Gina on said:

      Pretty cute, and I think a good fit for rambunctious kids who don't mean to be naughty but end up doing it a lot anyway (which is probably a pretty large percentage).

    18. Cat on said:

      I loved this one! I was in need of dragon stories for a preschool story time and read through maybe 20 books. This was an easy pick for one of the books! Dragon was tamed! great illustrations!

    19. Melanie on said:

      A village has a terrible dragon problem. The King invites knights to come tame the dragon. When that fails, the village people invite anyone to come help tame the dragon. That doesn't work. At this point readers are introduced to a boy who writes a story. When he's done writing the story, he sits under a tree and begins to read it out loud. The dragon becomes engrossed and even when many townspeople crowd around, the dragon remains to hear the rest of the story. In the end the dragon learns to b [...]

      A disrespectful dragon torments a kingdom so much so that the king offers a reward to anyone who can tame him. When the brave knights fail, the king seeks out the help of anyone and everyone and finds the unlikeliest of heroes to save the day, and with a story no less.I really like the tone of the storytelling here; it highlights the humor and is perfect for reading aloud with PreK-2.

    21. Beth on said:

      How do you tame the savage beast? That's what the king, the knights, and the villagers are trying to figure out. A hilarious story that will no doubt be a read aloud hit. I may even be able to use it as a mentor text about supporting your thesis (just HOW was dragon so terrible?) :)

    22. Joan Marie on said:

      Too cute. Humor is great. How to tame a dragon Great for book-loving kiddos!

    23. Corinne on said:

      Very cute illustrations. I found the solution to the dragon intriguing, but it fell flat in its follow through. The kings prize was clever though.

    24. Alice on said:

      3.25 starsThis book got a few smiles out of me! This could be a fun way to talk about manners or just a cute book. Even the meanest of mean can softenwell so they say (Wink wink!!)

    25. Katie on said:

      4.5 stars. This book would make a great read aloud! The style of writing was funny and it had a surprise ending. I can see some great predictions happening with this book.

    26. Anna Fillmore on said:

      Funny read aloud, big jokes and little jokes, that all lead up to an ending that demonstrates the power of stories/reading. Just wished there was a little more diversity.
