Genre: Children's Picture Books

Dragon's Breath
George has a pet dragon. Unfortunately, the pet dragon doesn't think it is important to brush his teeth. George has to find a way to get Joe to brush his teeth. I love Michael's books because they teach a lesson and they rhyme and this makes them interesting to children.
