Patricia  Schröder - Let’s Read Together – A Dragon Friend for Linus


A new concept for early readers and children who do not read much!

The concept
"Let’s Read Together …" – this is the way many families read: grownups and children often take turns to read aloud to each other, so that early readers don't feel out of their depth. Why not plan a book to match the different levels of adults and children?

On each double page, a more difficult passage for adults to read to children contains a paragraph for early readers to master alone – with easy words and a simple sentence structure. Taking turns to read aloud makes for a varied and enthralling story. The book is opulently illustrated.

The book
Fumo, the little dragon, has a terrible secret: he can't breathe fire. At the annual "Melting the Treetops" trials for 7-year old dragons, he doesn't succeed in making even the tiniest cloud of smoke! Low-spirited and in desperation, he flees the laughter of the other dragons, in the process tumbling into a crater and ending up in a deep lake. After struggling to the shore, he suddenly finds himself face to face with a human boy. This is Linus and, to begin with, Linus is just as afraid of Fumo as Fumo is of him. But then they both become friends. When Fumo manages to save a human village from a terrible catastrophe, he proudly returns to Dragonland. He has proved that a dragon can be a true hero even without being able to breathe fire.
