Praise

"In appealing illustrations that have a bright, crayony roughness, Whitehouse has fun bringing Durst's world to life... the lively details of Roar's daily life might be just enough to let readers temporarily forget about their own back-to-school nervousness."—-Publishers Weekly
"Readers will enjoy the peek at dragon life that Whitehouse provides, from the way Roar's mom roasts the veggies before they come out of the garden to the pesky winged ponies that must be chased off the roof."
