Pegasus: A Dragon’s Tale, written by Gina LoBiondo and illustrated by Stephanie Zuppo, is a beautiful and imaginative story for children. Prince Dayshawn and Princess Kameela are two bear cubs and one day they find an egg which they take home to hatch. A dragon is hatched and he is named Pegasus. Pegasus lives with the bear cubs; however he is released to the wild once he becomes too large. Years later when the Prince and Princess are grown, they are kidnapped and held captive until they are rescued by Pegasus, who then becomes a special part of the family and kingdom.
Gina LoBiondo and Stephanie Zuppo have done a wonderful job with the story and illustrations. Dragons are creatures children love to read about. This book will teach children of a young age the importance of being kind to others and helping when one can and then the favor will be returned in time of need. The illustrations are cute and do not appear scary or menacing which is something I was happy with while reading the book to my young children. This is a book that will be enjoyed by children and adults and will stimulate imaginations! Written with the style and concept of a fairytale, this is one that will be enjoyed over and over again for years to come.
