This is a cutely illustrated, and uniquely descriptive picture book about Padraig the dragon and his new friend, Roger the turtle. I think most children in the age range of 4-10, would enjoy this book - although it seems my 8 year-old son enjoyed it more than his older sister, probably due to the fact that it includes 2 boys (one of them a dragon), and a pretend pirate adventure.

For a brief synopsis, two completely different boys meet and become friends, Padraig realizes his new friend is lost and does everything he can to help Roger get back home. The boys use the senses of sight, sound, smell and taste to finally find the right house.

Unlike other picture story books Ive seen, this one has a couple of pages that come after the story to help a parent or caregiver delve deeper into the meaning of the book. It offers a Bible verse (Proverbs 17:17,) as well as discussion questions regarding friendship. It even gives a recipe on the last page for Chocolate Chip Snappers, the special kind of cookies mentioned in the book.
