Iguana Be a Dragon (Hardcover)
When iguana's plan to impress his friends goes up in flames, he learns that the most amazing thing he can be isn't a fire-breathing dragon—it's himself!
Iguana has a BIG problem: His new neighborhood is filled with all kinds of interesting animals. And he’s not interesting at all! But what if he became something amazing, like . . . a fire-breathing dragon??
This infectiously charming picture book from Maddie Frost reminds readers not to worry too much about fitting in . . . because the coolest friends will celebrate you for being yourself. Now, THAT is pretty amazing!
Maddie Frost is the author and illustrator of Animobiles, Smug Seagull, and Just Be Jelly, and the illustrator of A Is for Artichoke, Shine Like a Unicorn, and more. Sometimes she worries that her books aren't that amazing, but then she remembers they came from her heart and reflect her true self. It doesn't get much more amazing than that! She lives in Massachusetts with her husband, two dogs, and a donkey next door.
