My 5 year old son loves this series and the Halloween story is one of his favorites! Dragon is just as lovable as in the others, and there are laugh out loud moments!

Dav Pilkey doesn't use rhyme, or cadence in his writing, but the text is well-chosen, which makes for easy, enjoyable reading. The illustrations are simple, but convey the tales with ease. The author/artist utilizes bright, bold colors that captivate young eyes, yet remind us of the season. My son was only 2 1/2 when I discovered this book, and although a bit young to read all 3-stories in one sitting, he appreciated them individually. At no time was he scared, but highly amused. Each story takes about 2-minutes to read aloud, so in total 6-minutes or more. Parents will appreciate this book for the humor, and the non-scary appeal.

Since dragons aren't real and he's a talking one at that, the book is a fantasy. It is also an early chapter book. The stories have great examples on conflict, with lots of conflict and action through each chapter.

This book includes two stories, two in which dragon tries to be scary, initially fails, but then manages, and one in which dragon isn't trying to be scary, but scares himself. In the first story dragon can't get a big pumpkin, but he scares his friends (who are initially laughing at him) with six little ones. In the next his friends are laughing at his costume, until a pumkin falls on his head and they think he's a monster. In the third, he scares himself- with the growling of his empty stomach!

My granddaughter loves the Dragon series. It's good for those young readers who aren't very sure of their reading ability. Dragon is a wonderful character, she has all of the books, wish there were more.

This book is GREAT and my 4 year old loves it and we laugh and laugh whenever we read it. I would have gave it 5 stars but the one thing I don't like is the author uses the word 'stupid'. Which I really don't think is appropriate for kids to say... I just leave that word out when I read it, it's a really great book and the illustrations are fantastic...
