East Dragon, West Dragon Picture Book Details
Book: East Dragon, West Dragon
Author: Robyn Eversole
Illustrator: Scott Campbell
Funny with utterly charming illustrations, East Dragon, West Dragon is a book everyone in the family will adore. In the book East Dragon and West Dragon learn that even though they have very different lives and seem fierce to the other, they are not so different in the end once they get to know each other.
The book humorously explores the differences in dragon lore between Eastern and Western culture. East Dragon lives in a palace and is adored, while West Dragon lives in a cave, is feared, and thinks the knights are a nuisance because “nothing made a cave smell nastier than roast knight.”
It’s a picture book to delight the entire family.
