I loved when Marshmallow the dragon came because he was so cute, funny and magical. He got sick, at the end he had to leave. zoey was really sad. I really wish there was more to read.

My almost 5yo is loving this story! I randomly picked it off the shelf. When I finish a chapter (short 4-6 pages with pictures and picture book sized print), she wants to read the next one. There's enough pictures and chapters are short enough my 3yo likes it too!

Plus it's a girl of color explaining science!

And there's magic!

A relatable young girl uses a scientific approach to care for magical animals. Good expression of emotion and nice family dynamics with the parents. Very appealing.

If you're looking for a good transitional reader that involves magical creatures AND the scientific method... this is it! It's super cute, with very sweet illustrations, and did I mention there's, like, actual scientific-testing-of-hypotheses happening? I mean, it also involves dragons and is written for a very young audience, but still. I'm impressed!
