Having devoured all four previous books, I was thrilled when I spotted How To Catch A Dragon and we settled down to read it together. When Albie visits the library to find a book about dragons, he certainly doesn’t expect to meet a real knight and his horse!

After hearing Mom wish for a dragon to bring health and fortune for the new year, a boy (presumably Chinese) and several friends (of varying racial presentations) discover a dragon lurking about town.

Age range 3 to 9 New in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling How to Catch series - do you have what it takes to snag a dragon? My favorite parts were when the kids threw money around and when the dragon looked around the building with a mischievous look.With very mild peril that is quickly resolved, and friendly mythical creatures, this book is great fun!
