Nickerbacher, The Funniest Dragon

Nickerbacher The Funniest Dragon Review

I read this with my six year old, and most of the jokes went completely over her head, so I’m not sure it would be a hit on that level with younger kids. She seemed fascinated by it, nonetheless, but I think that was more do to with the idea of a dragon telling jokes and the interesting illustrations than anything else.

The story behind Nickerbacher is a tale we all know. “You should go after your dreams.” This time its surrounded by amusing illustrations (that dragon definitely has some dignified eyebrows!) and played out in simple, easy to understand words that a kindergartner could read on their own. However, given the (albeit still basic) level of the jokes, I can appreciate that a few of them were probably slipped in to make this book a bit easier for the adults to read.

The mini-reviewer thought very highly of this book. I thought it was okay, but nothing to be ecstatic about, so we met in the middle and decided to give this book a 4 out of 5 rating.
