When a Dragon Moves in Again


By Jodi Moore

Illustrated by Howard McWilliam

This is the second book in the Dragon set.I reviewed the first a few weeks ago. My new cousin was born this week and this book is about a new baby.


This book is about when a baby arrives at the house dragon lives at. At first it is exciting but new babies are hard work. You have to be quiet and your parents are very tired. The boy isn’t sure he wants a baby brother. He blames dragon for his bad behavior.

I am not sure I want a new baby at my house. My parents say it will just be me and annoying little brother. But I have a baby cousin.

I recommend this book to my cousins. I will give them my copy. 

Memere made the baby a quilt with red dragons on it. She never read this book!

 I made the baby a quilt too! Now I am going to visit with my cousins.


Ps. Here I am reading the book to the sleeping dragon at Southfield Library!

When a Dragon Moves in

Dragon Hi Res Cover

Author: Jodi Moore

This is a book I would share with my cousins who love dragons. I am going to send them my copy.   It is a story about a dragon moving into a sand castle that a boy made. The boy gets in trouble because he keeps saying the dragon is doing the naughty things. He is right but his parents can’t see the dragon.  The big mystery is is the dragon real or fake?

I think it is real. At night, I see firey breathe coming out of my playhouse, then I see a head, then wings and then a tail. I have a dragon living in my backyard.  He doesn’t do anything naughty so I don’t get in trouble because of him. I get in trouble all by myself.

I heard there is a second book, but so far, I have not found it at the library (it was checked out) or at the book store (this one was there).

I recommend this book to kids who get in trouble. It would be nice to have someone to get in trouble with…

Come back tomorrow to learn more about author Jodi Moore!
