Luanna's Home Renovation is a children's storybook by David Serra that follows Aiden, a youngster with a learning disability who encounters a dragon in the woods. Aiden often spent time alone because he could not connect with his peers and felt misjudged. While taking a walk in the forest in autumn, he met a yellow-scaled dragon named Luanna who had a country accent. Seeing and hearing the dragon speak shocked Aiden because he always thought mythological creatures were a figment of the imagination. The dragon recounts how she lost her home when a Cyclops forced her out of it and put her to sleep. When Luanna helps get rid of a hiker who tries to threaten Aiden, he decides to help her get her home back from the Cyclops.
Luanna's Home Renovation is an entertaining story about making new friends and helping one another. The book also tackles bullying, raises awareness about learning disabilities, and overcoming your fears. The story has mythology, time travel, and modern-day elements that make it a memorable read. David Serra introduces young readers to a cast of intriguing characters. The way he wrote the characters made me curious about their stories and future endeavors. The ending feels like the beginning of a fun friendship, which gives the book the potential to be a series about Aiden and Luanna’s adventures. The book is well-written and arranged. It is also a great book to add to your child's reading collection. It will motivate them to face their fears, embrace their uniqueness, and encourage them to be kind and make friends who will have their back.
