From the time he was born, Sneezy has been doing exactly what his name implies, which is sneezing. His mom and dad were concerned, and creatures and people came from far and wide to see if they could diagnose the young dragon's ailment and help him. Apart from his constant sneezing fits, he also had issues wheezing and coughing. Many doctors came and went, saying it was a virus or an infection, but even with treatment, his symptoms didn’t go away. Finally Wizard The Lizard came and gave him a psik (nasal spray) and a puff (inhaler) and taught his parents how to use both on the tiny dragon. Soon his coughing, wheezing, and sneezing became less and he was able to play like a normal dragon kid. Then Doctor Pill gave him some pills and syrup to help with any other symptoms that remained. Though he still sneezed and coughed from time to time, it was no longer as bad as it once had been, and Sneezy was hopeful that everything was going to be all right.
In Sneezy: Part 1. Symptoms and Medication by Aga Kim Galena, we are introduced to a little dragon who isn’t like anyone else in Dragonia. I adored this book. I thought it was a very clever tale about an asthmatic dragon who wanted to be normal like other dragons his age. The story introduces children to chronic issues that afflict many kids and adults. It’s written in a way that a child would relate to and could open up the topic for conversation. Aside from the great plot, the illustrations are beautifully done and fun, fitting perfectly with the storyline. Aga Kim Galena has done a great job with Sneezy and I look forward to reading more in the series.
