I tried reading this book to A who is three but she didn't seem to enjoy it. So I read it to K who is 9 and he seemed to enjoy the book more. Pegasus is a dragon that two bear cubs find and take care of until he is too big to live in the castle. When they need to be saved from an evil warlord who is there to save the day? Well Pegasus of course.
Now honestly the illustrations seemed to soft looking in color I think maybe they need to be brightened up a bit.
Second I am not sure about the whole scene where the bears are tied up for the younger kids. As far as my son who is 9 goes he knows that it is just a book and not real but my three year old is another story. She was sad to seem them tied up even though there is a happy ending.

Title: Pegasus: A Dragon's Tale
Author: Gina LoBiondo
Review: As reading Button Nose the sad little bear I was quite excited in a way an adult shouldn't be to see what else Gino LoBiondo had in store for us. Pegasus: A Dragon's tale is shorter than Button Nose but that didn't make it any less enjoyable for me. Pegasus: A Dragon's tale like Button Nose is a multi award winning book which is a great achievement for any other but it is not a label I see attached the childrens' books that often so a double congratulations to Gina LoBiondo.
Unlike Button Nose which was a story about friendship, Pegasus is more a story of responsibility which two bear cubs; Dayshawn and Kameela finding a dragon egg which they nurture until it hatches a baby dragon which they name Pegasus. For many year Pegasus grows alongside the bears becoming very attached the Kameela. They often played together and loved each other very much until one day when their father says they have to set Pegasus free to find and live with his own kind. This is a key lesson as letting something you love go is all part of growing up and becoming responsible.
As the bears grew into adults they became more active in their father; the king's rules and overseeing their future kingdom but Kameela never forget about their dragon and often wondered what become of him. After an opposing kingdom declared war against the king the young bear prince and princess are kidnapped and held for ransom. But before the enemy could put their plan into action and huge dragon rescues them and takes them home. Kameela instantly knows it is Pegasus and begs her father to keep him as he will act as a deterant to other kingdom looking for trouble.
Their father agrees as the dragon saved the lives of his children. The ending was lovely as we see Pegasus finally find his home and there he stays even when Dayshawn and Kameela are grown up and have cubs of their own. This story was a wonderful of friendship, responsibility and at times danger. I highly recommend this to all - especially those with young children.
Something clever the author did was having a prince and princess in the story so it will appeal to both boys and girls alike making it a wonderful all round story that anyone can enjoy. While I personally found Button Nose to be more relateable it doesn't make it any less of a great story.
This book was sent to me for review consideration by the author
A story with a moral, as all children's stories should be - look after others and the good deed will come back to you.
(Writing down my four year old's words.)
I love how the dragon is named after my unicorn. I love how the dragon sleeps on the rug like my cat. I love the pictures because they are colourful. The king is really clever for making sure the dragon has lots of water and fruit. The bad man is mean for taking the bears. I love the dragon for looking after his bear friends.
This is a beautiful story of bravery, friendship and acceptance of differences, accompanied with lovely illustrations along the way. I can really imagine a child being eager to find out what happens in the story.
It's hard for someone without a child to test how enjoyable this is for a child, I can only assume (and comment how my inner child enjoyed it too!) I'll be sure to pass this on to a friend and their child in the hope that they will enjoy it as much as I think they should!
