Do Not Bring Your Dragon to Recess

by Julie Gassman
Illustrated by Andy Elkerton

Dragons are more than just fire and wings. They have outside interests like slides and swings. But can a dragon follow the rules and use proper playground manners at recess? With the help of her best friend she can! This is the third book in author Julie Gassman’s popular dragon series. Using a diverse cast, relatable situations, and rhyming text, the importance of recess etiquette has never been funnier!

"As if starting school weren't worry enough, new students need to fret about classmates who bring their oversized reptilian pets along. . . .brightly colored, Saturday morning-cartoonish illustrations. The racially diverse students and teachers include a child with glasses, one with an arm in a sling, and one in a wheelchair." - Kirkus Reviews

School Library Journal - Mary Kuehner, Arapahoe Library District, CO

"Following on the heels of Gassman’s two other cautionary dragon books, this rhyming story explains why bringing a dragon to play at recess is a bad idea. . . .Elkerton’s artwork is reminiscent of Mark Teague’s dinosaurs and dragon—and savvy readers will notice dragons from different legendary traditions. . . .Purchase where stories about school and manners are needed, and where the first two dragon titles are popular." - School Library Journal
