Duncan the Dragon loves to read. When he reads a story, his imagination catches fire! Unfortunately . . . so does his book.
Fire breath is great for roasting marshmallows, but it’s not so great for reading. Duncan just wants to get to those two wonderful words, like the last sip of a chocolate milk shake: The End. Will he ever find out how the story ends?
This bright, warm tale champions determination, friendship, and a love for books. And milk shakes!
Topics in Duncan the Story Dragon
Honestly, my biggest challenge was overcoming my own fears. For many years I worked toward my dream of becoming a published author/illustrator. With Duncan, that dream was finally coming true. I put tremendous pressure on myself for it to be perfect. I struggled with self-doubt and fear of failure. Once I moved past the goal of perfection and, as I tell my kids, “just did my best”, the process was much more enjoyable. And I’m happy with the result!

Duncan the Story Dragon is such a clever story with fun illustrations. I love to see the illustrations that bring Duncan's imagination to life and help us join in his reading adventures. The concept of the book is so well thought out, and the ending ties it all together so perfectly!
