This is a book about a dragon named Dragolin. Dragolin is a dragon that couldn?t make a fire with his breath, so everyone would tease him. One day Dragolin was trying to burn a beetle. The problem was he didn?t know there was an armadillo watching him. So when he blew, the armadillo fell to the ground laughing. When he stopped laughing, he told him the secret to everything was to believe in your self. He decided to believe in himself. He saw a unicorn go flying by. He believed he could fly, but he failed trying to do something that no dragon could do. Then he believed he could breath fire. Will poor Dragolin be able to breath fire like other dragons, or will he fail once again?

I like this book because it is about a dragon. I also like it because he was trying to make a fire with his breath. My favorite character is the armadillo. He is my favorite because he is very nice to the dragon. My favorite part is when he tries to burn the beetle. It is my favorite part because smoke comes out of his nostrils, but no fire. If you like fairy tales, this is the book for you.

I recommend this book to people who like fairy tales. It is a cute book because it is about a dragon. I also recommend this book to people who like dragons. It is a good book because a dragon learns to believe.
