Rosie The Pink Dragon Meets Abby and Maddie is a storybook for children, grades k-3, written by Karen Magnan and illustrated by Kat Black. Rosie lived in a large pink castle in the fairy realm. She was a magical dragon, who loved where she lived and took good care of the animals who lived in the realm with her. Rosie knew they loved sweets, and she grew all manner of treats for them; she even had a chocolate fountain set up for their delight. Her dear friend was the Fairy Godmother, who was the queen of the fairy realm, and the two of them shared a love of the vegetables Rosie grew in her garden. On one of her visits, the Fairy Godmother brought her two granddaughters, Maddie and Abby, to meet Rosie. Maddie and Abby were enchanted by the realm and couldn’t wait to sample all the sweets. But, alas, they could not resist the chocolate fountain, and all too soon, Rosie and the Fairy Godmother had to rescue the two little girls who had fallen right in.

Karen Magnan’s Rosie The Pink Dragon Meets Abby and Maddie is a well-written and imaginative tale of a pink dragon who lives in a fairy realm and grows both sweets and vegetables. Mangan’s story is fun and might just convince a young reader or two to try some vegetables and pass up on a bath in the chocolate fountain. Kat Black’s colorful and light-hearted illustrations do a grand job of portraying not only Rosie and the Fairy Godmother, but the two little girls drenched in chocolate and then in some rather unusual incarnations. Sometimes, kids can’t resist casting spells, even if they know they shouldn’t. Rosie The Pink Dragon Meets Abby and Maddie is highly recommended.
