How to Tame Dragons and Hush Hyenas

How to Tame Dragons and Hush Hyenas by Author Kerry Orchard is an interesting colourful children’s book.

This book’s story plot is about Jeremy who is a kid that seems to wear trouble as a t-shirt and carries an uncontrollable rage inside, that is until he discovers how to tame his dragons and hush hyenas. On this particular day everything goes wrong and Jeremy’s anger escapes erupting into wild hyenas and fire burping dragons causing mayhem in the classroom! Follow the adventure as Jeremy goes on a wild journey of disaster but learns to control the beasts; managing them one step at a time. This hilarious tale filled with colourful illustrations is perfect for the young-reader learning to deal with dragons of their own.

With a total of 34 pages, How to Tame Dragons and Hush Hyenas, this book tries to show how a boy with a hot temper feels when things don’t go right by relating his feelings to dragons and hyenas.

I really found this book interesting and can be read by any kids especially from kids between four to ten years.  The story revolves between anger and destruction.

Also really liked this book’s wonderful illustrations by Roberto Gonzalez.

I highly recommend this book to any reader who enjoys smart, character driven books.
