    1. I just didn't get Theodore's motivation! He seemed to be happy in his cave all alone, I'd have guessed that he would easily just eat the kid when he was hungry, but for some reason he's swayed by the laughter of a child? Not buying it. It should have ended with Theodore munching on the kid's bones and the moral being that you shouldn't play with dragons because they will eat you.





    2. A silly book about a dragon and a boy. Theodore, a dragon, lives in a cave. He occasionally thinks about eating the different animals that come near his cave. One day, a boy approaches the cave and pokes Theodore. It appears Theodore has found his next meal, but the result is laughter and playtime instead.


    3. Check out more picture book reviews @ Perspective of a WriterTheodore lives alone inside a dark cave. When he is visited by a bird, wolf, and tiger, he isn't hungry yet then a boy approaches What does the dragon eat in the end?This story is rather bizarre. There is a message though that when your friends or others are grouchy like a dragon they won't hurt you instead play with them and help them to get out of that mood. I LOVE this message, though it is not immediately obvious even to adults rea [...]


    4. So If he didn't eat any of the animals or the boy, what DOES Theodore eat? That matter is never addressed :(



    5. Miss 3 and I like to explore different books and authors at the library, sometimes around particular topics or themes. We try to get different ones out every week or so; it's fun for both of us to have the variety and to look at a mix of new & favourite authors.We've read a few of Adam Lehrhaupt's books and this wasn't one of my favourites. Miss 3 did laugh at it but that was also because a lot of it went over her head. There were parts of the text that I didn't like or didn't really like th [...]


    6. Love, love, love this book! There is something grumpy lurking in a solitary cave. All the animals are warned to stay away or it will eat them. One day a boy dressed up as a knight visits the cave, and the creature reveals itself and promises to gobble up the boy. This book is laugh out loud and the ending will surprise you! Fun and short enough for any story-time read. You will fall in love with Theodore the dragon!


    7. This cute picture book uses the story of a grumpy dragon and a rambunctious little boy to share the message that laughter can be powerful in turning thing around and helping good relationships to grow. The grumpy dragon just wants to sit quietly in his cave and be left alone. When the tenacious little boy keeps roaring and poking him, that changes everything. Clever, colorful illustrations and simple, narrative text make this a fun story to share with young readers.


    8. The illustrations are super fun (love the dark dark browns and soft golds), but the story does not have super structural integrity. The big fat moment of conflict is resolved with unsatisfying ease; the boy-dragon complicated relationship has great potential but their differences are also dealt with quickly. I want to root for Theodore, but I don't get him -- how come he's not hungry? And how come he'd eat his playmate? And when we got to the reason he didn't eat them -- ew. I got told.


    9. Theodore is thinks everything is something he can eat, only he isn't hungry or is he? Each time something come by he contemplates if he wants to eat it until a little boy comes. But should he eat him? Or maybe chase him?This is a fun story that will have readers chuckling. The illustrations are bright and pleasing to the eye which will keep the attention of the youngest of readers.


    10. What's DOES this dragon eat? A friendly sentiment, but as the seasons pass during this book, I can't help but wonder what this boy's new friend eats to stay alive. Jon Klassen-esque illustrations of the mysterious cave dweller make the first half of this picture book more enjoyable than the end. Still, an entertaining read.


    11. This book is about a delightful dragon who has a bad habit of playing with his food and a good habit of saving his snacks for later.Good for the 3-5 year age group with nice art and an entertaining story.


    12. I found this book to be sort of bizarre. It had me giggling until the boy laughed. He laughed at a dragon about to eat him? It sort of rubbed me the wrong way and it felt like lazy writing. The illustrations are beautiful, though. Almost felt Jon Klassen-esque.


    13. This dragon sucks at being a dragon. I'm glad he didn't eat the boy and they know play but the last line says that could change in a heartbeat. The sequel will have Theodore finally devouring the boy, killing the playful mood lol.


    14. November 2017 - perfect for kids who want something that seems like it might be scary (but actually isn't). Quick to read, but there's plenty to talk about.







    15. I'm sorry, but the only way you can write a story with this cover is to have someone get eaten. Loads of dramatic tension wasted. The last line was a fun bit of counterpoint, but too late.



    16. This book gets better as you go along, which is kind off since it's only about a 5 minute read It has a nice ending and may be a fun read aloud, even with older children.



    17. i love the illustrations, the way theodore's eyes change colour with the colour of the lightening sky. and what a happy ending!
