Between a Roc and a Hard Place–Book Review

This book had me from the cover. I love dragons. I mean I really love dragons. And while the title doesn’t say it, the cover certainly does. There’s a baby dragon sitting in a nest of bird chicks.

The author, Danny Birt, pulled off an adorable children’s book that was completely worth it. There are many lessons taught from the idea that family is what you make of it to defeating racism. A poor orphaned dragon is given to a nest of birds, of rocs, and is raised with a family so entirely different than itself that it learns many lessons that those of its kind never had before.

I completely enjoyed reading this book, especially when I found that it was more than the standard ugly duckling book that it appeared to be at first. I would imagine that many children would also enjoy it, even though my hard headed son wouldn’t give it a try. But that’s a 10 year old for you.

All in all… five stars for a children’s book, four for books in general. Cheers to you, Danny Birt. I look forward to more from you in the future.
