Review: My Dad is a Dragon

An exploration of dads and all the different things they do and love, My Dad is a Dragon is all about how special and unique every dad is. 

Some dads have pointy pencils for designing busy bridges. Some dads have tough trolleys for hauling heavy fridges.

Our young protagonist explores all the different things dads do, say, think and enjoy, but always, and most importantly, her dad is a dragon! 

He’s special and unique and just the dad she needs him to be.

This is the 6th book in Damon Young’s series of books about family, following My Sister is a Superhero, My Brother is a Beast, My Pop is a Pirate, My Nanna is a Ninja and My Mum is a Magician

Again accompanied by Peter Carnavas’s brilliant illustrations, the book is filled with colourful joy and loads of details to explore.

It’s a story about love, family and all the wonderful ways our dads are our dads. Kids will delight in discovering their own dads between the covers and exploring all the ways in which other dads can be different.

Dads are the best, and this book reinforces just how great they are. 

Happy Fathers Day to all the amazing dads out there!
