Have You Seen My Dragon?

By Steve Light
Illustrated by Steve Light

Enter a fascinating, ornately drawn cityscape and help a boy find his dragon while counting objects from hot dogs to traffic lights.

In the heart of the city, among the taxis and towers, a small boy travels all over the town, searching for his dragon friend. Readers will certainly spot the glorious beast, plus an array of big-city landmarks and features they can count. Is the dragon taking the bus, or breathing his fiery breath below a busy street? Maybe he took a taxi to the zoo or is playing with the dogs in the park. Steve Light’s masterful pen-and-ink illustrations, decorated with meticulous splashes of colour, elevate this counting book (numbers 1-20) to new heights – with brilliant flashes of humour.

  • Steve Light s skill with pen and ink is nothing short of amazing. His skills are beautifully showcased here.
  • A nifty combination search-and-find (although finding the dragon isn t very difficult!) and counting book. The word and numeral for the item to be counted appear on each spread. Unlike many counting books, this one goes from 1-20, making it suitable for slightly older children.
  • The setting is New York City, and the items, which appear in color aimid the black-and-white illustrations, are urban icons--taxicabs, man-hole covers, subway cars, and more.
