December 8th 2010, I wrote a review on The Dragon and the Turtle. I felt the story about Padraig the Dragon looking for Roger the Turtle’s house went on for too long. So this time around I decided to review The Dragon and the Turtle Go on Safari hoping it changes my view on the way the Authors writes.
The Dragon and the Turtle Go on Safari by Donita K. Paul and Evangeline Denmark, illustrated by Vincent Nguyen is a story about two best friends determined to spend the whole night outside at the base of Mount Sillymanborrow; the boys use their imaginations to have fun while camping.
As it got dark, and the sound of strange animals fill the forest outside their tent, they got scary. The noise came from animals like Giraffes, Elephants, a rare Sumatran Rhinoceros and a baby Leopard. Roger and Padraig brave the unknown to rescue the baby Leopard. The fright of the night made their friendship stronger than fear.
The last page talks about guideline for children, Deuteronomy 31:6. This book was beautifully illustrated and would recommend the reading level age 7 or 8 years old even though the reading level starts at 4 years. A younger age will find it boring and fall asleep quickly. Hardcover pages: 40.
