My goodness, could this book and its demanding baby dragon get any cuter? The little dragon demands their favorite story over and over, while the big dragon is slowly falling asleep, is a scenario parents and children can surely relate to! One of my all-time favorite picture books.

Amazing picture book! My almost 4-year old asked for it again and again!

This is such a fun book - I liked how the bedtime story got shorter and shorter every time mama had to read it to the little dragon. Very cute!

Through playful die-cuts and quirky humour, Again! takes the familiar story of a kid resisting sleep to "a new, fiery level" (The Horn Book). A little green dragon requests his favorite story before bedtime, so his Mum obligingly reads the tale of Cedric, the fierce red dragon who never goes to bed. But when the little dragon keeps asking for the story again, his Mum changes the details, making Cedric gentler every time, until Mum herself nods off, leaving the little dragon fuming. His final, explosive "AGAIN!" is sure to thrill and amuse kids and parents alike.

This is a brilliant story! For any parent who has had to read and reread a book over and over again to a child, this book will speak to you. Fortunately children are not dragons and can't cause such a ruckus lol.
