Meet Rita. She’s a little girl with very big ideas. When Rita gets cross she imagines she has a ferocious dragon that will make the world shudder with anger. But even the hottest tempers can be soothed and Rita’s mum knows just how.

Review by Stacey

Rita is a young girl who has a very big imagination. When her snowman is knocked down she becomes angry and decides she wants a Dragon as they are angry too. They can breathe fire, roar loudly, and fly her far away from other people.

Rita wants a Dragon is a book in the Rita wants series which currently includes six stories. In each book, Rita uses what is happening to her at that moment in time to conjure up an image in her head for what could be useful to her. Just like the dragon in this story because she is mad and dragons always come across as angry creatures.

The book is short, amusing, and has amazing illustrations. It complements the series perfectly and shows just how big Rita’s imagination is and hopefully will get the young readers to explore theirs too.
