What a cute picture book about two boys who write pen pal letters! The only catch is that the letters have to rhyme, and one boy is human while the other is a dragon! The boys become better friends and exchange letters until they finally get to meet and discover the truth about each other. A series of hilarious and adorable misunderstandings follow the boys’ readings of their letters.

This is such a cute book!  I love that it rhymes and introduces kids to understanding people from different backgrounds than their own!
