What's The Book Dragon About

Publisher Summary

The town of Lesser Scrump has a rule: no books allowed! And it’s all because of a fearsome dragon, who comes in the night to steal every book and add it to her huge pile. Only Rosehilda says, “I’m not afraid!” and vows to challenge the creature who terrorizes her village. Will she be able to convince the dragon that books are for reading, not hoarding?

Fun concept, if a bit predictable, though the last line is very witty. Solid illustrations.

Who Wrote The Book Dragon

Kell Andrews

I write picture books, short fiction, poetry, and novels for children. My next picture book, The Book Dragon, will be out from Sterling in Fall 2018, following up my debut picture book, Mira Forecasts the Future (Sterling, 2016). My first novel, Deadwood (Spencer Hill Press), was published in 2014, and my poetry and fiction has appeared in Spider and Ladybug magazines. I’m also an aspiring illustrator (never stop aspiring!).

In addition to writing for kids, I’m mom to two funny, curious, and brave daughters who inspire the characters in all my books. During the day I’m a writer, editor, and content manager for higher education. A committed generalist, I have a humanities degree from Johns Hopkins University and a master of liberal arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania. I live in Wynnewood, PA, in a house that looks inside just like the cave in The Book Dragon.
