Joy Fridman has written an endearing story of friendship and the quest for true courage in Landon and The Dragon. Landon has issues with his friends, self-esteem and his `not so great' armor. But the advice of a unlikely friend shows Landon that real strength doesn't lie in what you wear or what you hold, but what is within. He learns to face his fears and even discovers that sometimes they are not as scary as you imagine. A wonderful story for beginning readers with beautiful illustrations. 5 stars!

HASH(0x96f24aec) out of 5 stars Imagine there's no armors ---- it isn't hard to do.... 23 July 2013
By Israel Kanner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In a beautiful Zen story, a master put forth a problem to his disciples: "You need to get inside a room with a terrible monster in order to take out a sacred scroll that lies just to the head of that monster. How will you do this?" The master received all kind of answers, from "I will use protective spells," to "I'll wear a magical armor," etc, but none of these answers seems to satisfy him. Until one day a new disciple said to him: "I will get into the room, smile kindly to the monster and take out the scroll."

Joy Fridman's new and first children's book is a wonderful illustration of this story, written and crafted in a way that allows children to really internalize this life lesson. It has all the ingredients a good story should have: a regular child that embarks on a transformative journey that redefine the word "hero", a master-teacher that shares his wisdom, a monster that is not really a monster - and a true message: We can live better when we let go of our protections. This is definitely an idea - and a book - worth spreading.

HASH(0x97687bd0) out of 5 stars Makes you smile. & Makes you think... hmmm 18 July 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I read this book on my smartphone.
It is so cool that you can take the book with you, for those moments when you wait and need to occupy the little ones.
The situation that Mr. Fridman describes in this lovely book is very familiar to all of us.
Which makes you a little sad at the beginning (because kids are sometimes cruel).
But than Landon descovers his inner power, and it has such an important moral for our kids.
I loved what Landon's wearing under his armor... :-)
Thank you Joy Fridman. Can't wait for your next book.

HASH(0x973622e8) out of 5 stars My little boy's new hero 18 July 2013
By Pini Ben-Sira - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Searching, yet again, for a new bed-time story I could tell my four n' a half year old son, I was delighted to find "Landon and the Dragon". I don't know if that's the right way to do it or not, but my way of picking a story for my kid is to read it myself first, and see whether I like it or not. So I took one look at the sample, got excited with the beautiful drawings, and decided to go for it. Well, what can I say... this one really took me by surprise. It's a beautiful story about a boy who learns how to feel safe without having to be protective all the time. Very relevant to this day and age, no doubt, and always relevant for our little ones, who are busy finding their place in the world from an early age. It's a wonderful and optimistic adventure that will make your children (and probably you as well) go to sleep with a smile.

HASH(0x973625dc) out of 5 stars book review for the charming book 21 July 2013
By Reny Y. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book is magical and captivating. I enjoyed reading about little and brave Landon's journey.
The story is sensitive and charming, and the illustrations are so beautiful and suitable for the journey.
I was moved by the writer's ability to connect to the children's world and the fears that accompany childhood.

From this connection the story equips the tender minds of the children with tools to deal with fears, along with the ability to break free of them through the identification, communication, and trust in nature and the goodness of the universe.

Highly recommended for children and adults who keep the inner child in them.

HASH(0x97578300) out of 5 stars Feel-good story with a sound moral 14 Aug. 2013
By Lynda Dickson - Books Direct - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
At the beginning of this story, Landon is frightened by the dragon and is then bullied by his peers. With the encouragement of a new friend, Landon summons up the courage to face his fears.

This book is well written, with a feel-good story, and a sound moral. The story is further enhanced by the cute and colorful illustrations by Karen Dishaw.

Definitely one to share with your children, especially young boys.
