This is the tale of a little Dragon who has a big problem; he cannot control his fire!

He also finds out the special way in which he can use his own remarkable gift of fire. His forest friends help him understand that he really is a very special dragon indeed!
My take on this book:
What's not to love with this book! The premise of the story seemed so cute, a dragon who couldn't control his fire, I just had to read the story.
Happy the Little Dragon has a special gift, the gift of fire. Thing is Happy doesn't know how to control it, which cause Happy to wonder why his parents gave him the name of Happy because often he is unhappy. Even though he has had a few mishaps such as burning the ruler right out of teachers hand, or burning his mother's apron right off of her, its when he ruins a special dinner with relatives that he runs away into the forest. As he goes on his journey he meets many special friends, and learns that each of his new animal friends also have special gifts.
What I quickly learned was there was so much more than just a cute story, instead there is a valuable lesson that youngsters need to know woven into the pages of the story.The story flows well and the colorful illustrations will immediately draw a young reader right in.
A great little book filled with Happy and his animal friends that is perfect for young readers.
