Squire With Fire: Disappearance of Luka is a story about a white dragon named Luka. Luka's color and the fact that he is unable to breathe fire make him different from all the other dragons around. Because of this, the other dragons like to bully Luka, which made him uncomfortable around anyone except the ones who love him. This all changes when his friend Squire Mackenzie finds him and unites Luka and his parents. Mackenzie then sees a fire in her village. Oh no, the Vikings are trying to burn down her village. They have to save the castle, so they try to put the village fires out. Discovering earlier that Luka has special powers, Mackenzie and Luka's parents take Luka to help save her village and castle. What do you think? Is Luka bold enough to use his powers to help his friend?
I love this sweet story about Luka and his beautiful white color. Author Joseph Cassis does an incredible job writing this book in a way that children will get excited about, and they can understand the story very well. What an excellent and clever way to teach children about bullying and ways to defend themselves. Luka having Mackenzie as a special friend is lots of help because she always makes him feel better about himself. Not only is this a great story, but the illustrations are also phenomenal, with beautiful landscaping and colorful dragons. Of course, I have to say Luka is my favorite. He is pure white and it's stunning. The pictures capture the story so well and bring it to life on the pages. I would love to see a copy of this book in all elementary classrooms and libraries, as well as any daycare and any other places children may be such as a doctor's or dentist's office. I urge you to check out this beautiful book.
