An enchantingly vibrant storybook combined with a range of arts and activities.

Emily Jones is called out of her world and into Elvendale, to the aid of The Dragon Queen. The Elf Witch, Ragana, has captured the queen and is after her clutch of dragon eggs. It’s going to take Emily and her elf friends to protect the baby dragons. But can they save The Dragon Queen?

Featuring exceptional jewel-toned artwork with a distinctly ethereal feel, Dragon Adventures holds appeal for both boys and girls in the 6-10 age range. Activities include: a map maze, matching, coordinate marking, coloring, decoding, spot-the-differences, personality quiz, and instructions for the owl perch LEGO set that’s included with the book.

The story segments of this workbook are told through a blend of traditional illustration and standard children’s book layout and a comic book format. The presentation is effective, and kept my 6 and 7 year old fully engaged and interested throughout. The only problem I encountered was the lack of ending satisfaction. It was disappointing to get through all 32 pages and be left with a cliffhanger “To be continued…” (An issue I haven’t seen before with LEGO books of this sort in the Star Wars and NEXO Knight veins.) For readers who prefer a sense of story completion, you’ll be compelled to purchase at least one more workbook in this line in order to find out what happens.

A promising storyline, but sadly unfinished. Buyer be aware.
