Product Description

Drakonia…. Land of the dragons, ancient and proud creatures. Drakonia…. Home of Miro, a tiny and frightened red dragon who is still trying to find his place in the world. On his journey to become a “real” dragon, he makes some unusual new friends and discovers that friendship can overcome the greatest fears. Miro’s stories tell of courage and friendship without boundaries or prejudices.

Miro the Dragon is geared towards children aged 3 to 10, although the stories are also enjoyed by older children and many adults all over the world. If your children like dragons, they will love Miro!

About the Author

Theresa Berg is a bilingual writer, born in Germany but home only in her heart and her fantasy. From the moment she was able to string words together, she was lost to the written words. At the tender age of five, she started her journey to become an avid reader and writer, ignoring all boundaries of age and language. Miro is her first children’s book character. His adventures started in a quiet hotel room in an even quieter town in the midst of Germany back in 2009. Since then, Theresa has seen him grow into more than just a mere fable for children; he became a living being with heart and soul who chose to stay at her side. ‘Whenever I write a new story about Miro, it is as if he sits on my shoulder and tells me what happened; I only need to write it down,’ she says about her unusual relationship with the little red dragon. If you want to find out more about Miro and his friends, you can visit him online at http://mirodrakonia.wordpress.com.

This book was recently entered in The Wishing Shelf Book awards. This is what our young readers/teachers thought:

FEEDBACK

Title
Miro the Dragon
Author
Theresa Berg
Translated by

Svenja Gosen

FEEDBACK
COVER 6/10
The readers liked the fact there was the dragon on the front and the fonts, they felt, were easy to read and genre-appropriate. However, they also thought the cover was a little bland and the lettering lacked imagination. Also, the green background is ‘terrible’. As one reader put in her feedback, ‘The background green looks like really nasty 1970s wallpaper.’

EDITING 7/10
Generally the readers felt the book was well edited. They spotted no spelling errors and there was a good pace to the story. Sadly, however, in the first line of the text, there is a missing apostrophe: child’s hand, NOT childs hand. Also, they discovered the odd clumsy sentence: Miro watched the strange creature with curiosity and somewhat less frightened. This needs re-writing.
Also, here and there, they discovered odd word usage. For example, bursting with motivation. Bursting with excitement, yes, but bursting with motivation???

THEME 9/10
It was here the book scored the highest. The readers really liked the idea of a young dragon who is afraid of everything going out into the big wide world and learning so many valuable lessons. One reader put in his feedback, ‘I liked the way he learnt to fly: with the help of a little girl and a scary cat. What fun!’

STYLE 8/10
Generally, the readers liked the writing style. Not overly descriptive, there was good pacing and a ‘sweetness’ to the story the readers very much enjoyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Miro! 15 May 2013

I got so engrossed while reading this to my granddaughter that I forgot I was reading for her! What child wouldn't love to read about how a tiny dragon learns to fly or meets his first human? Nothing else like it out there in children's books. Well done, Theresa Berg!

I am far from being a child but I read these short stories and enjoyed them as well as the underlying message. Will buy another copy for my grandchildren.

My daughter loved this book. She thought Miro was cute. She liked that he got scared and could relate to him.
5.0 out of 5 stars 4 Stories With Pictures 13 Feb 2013
By Mick Macro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was browsing around, found this book, and thought it would be great for my young cousins. Like others said, the book contains 4 stories, all of which have easy to read, nice story lines.

One thing I found really cool was the drawings throughout the book. They are sort of like pencil/pen drawings, but the way they were produced makes them easy to see all the details on multiple kindle devices, as well as on a computer.

I can't ask for much more from a children's book. And for one other that said the text/story goes too long at some parts, I would agree for very young children it might be too long, but I think the story and pictures are spaced out nicely.
