The Book

This heartwarming book is about acceptance, family, and finding a purpose for your life.  It is beautifully written and inspires readers to not feel sad and discouraged because they don't fit in like the others around them. Being different means you are unique. 

Little dragon is the runt of his litter because he hatches out of a cracked egg. His mother calls him a miracle because of his size and she names him Egg.  That terrible name causes everyone to laugh at him.  

His grandpa is famous for making the hottest flames ever, his dad is super tall and no dragon has ever gotten so close to the sun, his siblings are bold and brave and his mom once saved a whole village by one swipe of her tail.  All those amazing feats make Egg feel powerless, weak and an underachiever. Will Egg ever find his own superpower gift and come to the realization that it's okay to be different and celebrate exactly who you were created to be! 

The illustrations are outstanding.  They are colourful, bold, and animated making the message of the book come alive.  I highly recommend this delightful book and I know kids will love it.
