Review: Danny the Dragon meets Jimmy


I was recently asked by Imagination Publishing to review a children's book called Danny the Dragon "Meets Jimmy" by Tina Turbin. I love children's books! So here it goes!

When I first read this charming tale about a boy named Jimmy who meets a friendly dragon named Danny, I knew that my 5-year old son, Amir, would love it. True enough, as soon as I finished reading it to him, he demanded, “Let’s read it again!”

As a parent, I like that this book encourages imagination, a sense of discovery and curiosity. On top of that, the characters, and Danny the Dragon in particular, are so polite. It’s nice for my son to see that even dragons should have good manners!

It’s no wonder why Amir liked the story so much, I’m sure he could easily see himself as Jimmy, and of course, every child dreams of finding something magical in seemingly ordinary objects and situations.

My son and I are itching to find out where Danny and his trusty sidekick Skipper came from and what they’re doing here, so I must get my hands on the next story in the series! I’m really looking forward to cuddling up with my son and reading the stories to him.It’s clear that author, Tina Turbin, works wonders as she weaves a captivating storyline that’s perfect for younger children, and coupled with Aija Jasuna’s lovely illustrations, it’s a winning combination indeed!

The book is available at Amazon, or you may order it directly at the official Danny the Dragon website.

Have fun reading!

PS: Ms Turbin was kind enough to drop me an email saying, "Thank you SO much for your lovely Review!" You're most welcome Ms Turbin, and it was my pleasure!
