School Library Journal
K-Gr 2 Duncan the dragon loves reading. At least, he thinks he does. He can never quite get to the end of the book because his imagination sets them on fireliterally. Filled with longing to reach "The End," Duncan asks numerous woodland critters to read to him, but no one will take up his offer. Finally, a mouse who loves stories reads to Duncan and he experiences a satisfying ending, which, as the book points out, is "only the beginning." The cartoonlike illustrations add humor (Duncan in an ice bath with melted soaps to cool his imagination flame) and action (sailing on the high seas, surrounded by aliens, etc.). VERDICT An additional purchase for libraries in need of more picture books about the joy of reading. Brittany Staszak, St. Charles Public Library, IL

Celebrate books, friendship, and chocolate milk shakes with Duncan the Dragon in this sweet, funny story perfect for fans of Dog Loves Books and Dragons Love Tacos.
Duncan the Dragon loves to read. When he reads a story, his imagination catches fire! Unfortunately . . . so does his book. Fire breath is great for roasting marshmallows, but it’s not so great for reading. Duncan just wants to get to those two wonderful words, like the last sip of a chocolate milk shake: The End. Will he ever find out how the story ends? This bright, warm tale champions determination, friendship, and a love for books. And milk shakes!
