East Dragon, West Dragon

Written by: Robyn Eversole and Scott Campbell

First line: East Dragon lived in a palace.

Why you should read this book: I was absolutely charmed by the story of two very different dragons who are suspicious of one another despite never having met and knowing nothing about each other. East Dragon, cultures, refined, the very picture of a Chinese dragon, and West Dragon, sort of American in his sloppy sensibilities but classically European in terms of his relationship with kings, knights, and princesses, find that humans, with their weaknesses and foibles, need them as much as they need the humans. East Dragon and West Dragon work together and recognize that they don't have to compete.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You're afraid that everyone around you is bigger, fiercer, and has a hotter, bluer flame.
