Read full description of the books:
This is a story about a family who travels to Indonesia because their little boy loves Komodo dragons. The visit isn't quite what he expected, but it wasn't completely a disappointment. The illustrations are very good, comparable to other books by Peter Sis. But the story wasn't overly engaging. It teaches a little about where Komodo dragons live and the tourism industry that centers around these ancient, fearsome creatures. We enjoyed reading the additional information about the dragons in the illustration of the Komodo dragon book within the story as well as in the author's note in the back of the book. But it certainly wasn't our favorite of his stories...
