Be careful what you wish for — again! This follow-up to You Don’t Want a Unicorn points out the hilarious mishaps that come with adopting a dragon.

Our protagonist wishes (much to the narrator’s continued chagrin) for a pet dragon. Though initially thrilled, the kid quickly discovers that dragons aren’t quite as awesome as they originally thought. From the scooting to the digging to the fire-breathing, our Kid is dismayed that they still haven’t found their perfect pet. Little do they know, that pet might just be right around the corner . . .

Praise

Praise for You Don't Want a Unicorn!:
"Climo's rainbow-bright illustrations take Dyckman's silly premise to a whole new level of absurdity.... This is a crowd-pleaser, complete with cupcake poops and rainbow burps, and...a welcoming and unobtrusive gender-nonconforming vibe."—Horn Book
"Climo creates gleeful unicorn havoc ... there's a lot of mischievous fun to be had."—Publishers Weekly
"The tone of the wry, bemused narrator is perfect...and the target audience will likely be eager for a repeat listen."
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Imaginative fun throughout."—Booklist
Praise for You Don't Want a Dragon!:

"Bite-sized bits of second-person narrative share space on roomy pages with bright, simply drawn...cartoon scenes."—Booklist
"[T]he chaos of dragon ownership is comically clear. The tidy minimalism of the digital art makes the mess and destruction all the more alarming, and the unicorn/hamster mutants of the close are utterly irresistible."—BCCB
"[S]illy and bright with slapstick humor [...] this book's subject matter has perennial--and enaging--interest."—School Library Journal
