Every day seems the same for Prince Lazaro.  Everyone else in the kingdom has a task to do, so he is always left alone. One day, he decides to wander into the woods despite his parents' warnings to never go in alone. After walking awhile, he hits his head on a tree, and then gets transported into a different world! There, he meets a beautiful dragon whose scales hold the power of gratitude and happiness. Two evil men are trying to steal the scales.  Can Prince Lazaro save the dragon and bring happiness back to his kingdom?
 

 

Opinion: 

I really enjoyed reading this tale. Even though the story was short, the author managed to include multiple plots. I liked how at the end of the story both plots were combined, and we got a happy ending for both! I also really enjoyed the illustrations in this book, and I think they added to the magical aspect of the story. Another thing that I liked was that this book had a lesson about how gratitude and happiness are something that should be shared. I think the author did a good job of portraying this message. The only thing that I did not like about this book was that I felt there wasn't enough context at the beginning. Overall, I highly recommend this book to young children!
