El león desmelenado no se come ni un bocado

Bk. 2. ISBN 9788448863753.
K-Gr 3–Ramón is a young dragon who has a tail, scales, and wings, but there is one thing dragons can do that Ramón is unable to: breathe fire! When he tries, he releases letters instead. However, this comes in handy. Whenever someone needs help, they call for Ramón, and he rushes to provide assistance by releasing a random letter. In the first title in this series, Ramón helps a young girl named Ana when an unusual cloud releases odd objects, such as a cow and a tree. Ramón and Ana investigate and, thanks to Ramón’s gift, the cloud is soon releasing water instead. In the second title in this series, a lion calls Ramón for help when he finds himself unable to see. When Ramón’s assistance with his letters brings the lion dangerously close to animals such as a zebra and gazelle, Ramón’s quick thinking saves the day again. Colorful illustrations on white backgrounds and clear text composed of all capital letters make these titles eye-catching and easy to read. The short sentences and accessible words make these a good choice for practicing reading and expanding vocabulary. The Spanish text is expressive and humorous, reflecting the action on the pages, and the letter for each title is emphasized in bold in every word which makes it easy to spot.
VERDICT Filled with fun and silliness, this Spanish early reader series is a good choice for children who are learning to read and who enjoy fantastical stories.
