  • Bird on a Quest

    Such a beautiful children's book. I know any child would love it and want to read it over and over again. The illustrations are just beautiful and so detailed. The colors are bright and cheerful. As you read you will find the text is written in prose. It all rhymes throughout the book. Simon is a bird on a quest. With a bottle cap on his head he heads off to find the scary dragon he has heard talk about. He flies through the forest asking all the animals if they have seen the dragon. He learns that sometimes things are not what they seem and that they are quite different from what we think. Sometimes what appears to be scary is not so after all. What a delightful and beautiful story for children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. This would make a great gift for any child. I recommend it. Thanks to Stephen G. Bowling, IBPA (Independent book Association), and NetGalley for allowing me to read a complimentary copy for my honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A beautifully written story

    Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite Things may not always be as you think. Stories have a habit of ever-changing and the characters become bigger than life with every new change. This is what happens when Simon decides to go on a quest looking for the very scary dragon. Simon’s a young bird and he’s on a mission. He greets his barnyard friends and asks for advice about finding the scary dragon. The best advice he receives is from the wise old owl who sends him along to talk to Clarence. And, guess what Clarence is? Not a dragon, that’s for sure; he’s much too small and Simon’s story has made the dragon grow beyond belief with every telling. Stephen G. Bowling’s picture book story, Simon’s Search for the Scary Dragon, is part of the Simon’s Tree House Adventures Series. Told in rhyming verse, the plot follows Simon as he sets out on his quest. He greets one barnyard creature after another, all friends of course, and suggests why each friend would be ideal to help him in his quest. But, Simon’s story magnifies with each re-telling and the dragon becomes unbelievably scary by the time Simon meets up with Clarence, who loves to read and is deep in a book (can't find any better characters than a book lover). What he describes to Clarence couldn’t be true, could it: “He has great big teeth and great big eyes./ He has four big wings that are twice his size.” Certainly sounds scary to me. The rhyming verse gives the story a lyrical flow and the bright, colorful illustrations are spectacular, carrying the story along with ease. This book is a treasure, something to cherish for generations.
