Day 68. Master A's Dad was an avid D&D player back in the day, so I trust him when he says that How To Catch A Dragon is pretty much a D&D adventure story in picture book form. What's nice is that the story beings in a library, and the lines between reality and fantasy blur into a quest. There's obstacles to overcome (a bear, a troll) and in the end, dragons, and the quote that "Nobody could EVER be bored in a library". Not bad. It's a prose book, intended for older children I imagine, but still enjoyed at this end.
Master A's verdict: Paid attention despite the length.
