Stella, The Fire Farting Dragon
Kids will love this picture book! It's a funny story about a dragon who wants to win a contest, but is nervous and can't stop farting fire. She could be publicly humiliated!
What will happen if she follows the advice of her human friend Allen? "No matter what happens, keep flying," he tells her.
I love the illustrations by Jack Foster (who also illustrated one of my books) because they're just as amusing as the story.
The author, J Aday Kennedy, is "differently-abled" and has plenty of experience with persevering in spite of difficulties, but the book isn't at all preachy-teachy. Stella, The Fire Farting Dragon is just plain fun!
