As everyone knows, dragons are rather large so you'll need lots of art supplies to do a picture. Also, because of their size you may have to focus on just parts of the dragon if you can't get a good view of the entire creature.
s you page through this humorous book you'll discover how young artists tackle the task of drawing a dragon. From the dragon's spiny back, ribbed underbelly and curved claws to its spiked tail and forked tongue, there are a lot of distinct features that the portrait should feature.
f you have someone at home who loves dragons, this picture book will be a hit and fun to read aloud. Although the title may sound like this is a
book with step-by-step instructions on drawing a dragon, it isn't! Rather, it is a story book that focuses on the task of handling the challenging assignment of dragon art.
t the end of the book is a two page fold out that showcases the various drawings that the school children featured in the book, supposedly produced for their teacher.
