Sloth the Lazy Dragon, by Regan W.H. Macaulay, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval
All the dwarfs in Radish's village are afraid of the dragon which dwells in a cave nearby. One day Radish enters the dragon's lair in hopes of persuading him to leave. But, as it turns out, the dragon is actually unable to leave his cave because he has become too fat. Sloth, the lazy dragon, can't even get out of the cave, let alone fly. Radish offers to help Sloth regain his health, and the dragon humbly accepts his offer. For several years Radish brings the dragon loads of healthy foods and helps him to exercise.
Regan W.H. Macaulay's Sloth the Lazy Dragon is a wonderfully imaginative book which teaches young readers about conquering fear, setting goals, and above all, making healthy choices. Expressive illustrations by Alex Zgud are an excellent addition to this book which is recommended for home and school libraries.
