CLONG ROARBoy lived in a silent world and couldn't hear the fighting But. The illustrations always make or break my review of children s book and these illustrations by Shane Devries are just too cute I particularly love the dragon However even with the adorable illustrations the storyline is what makes this book so special Boy is a deaf child and is misunderstood by the people in his village until he uses his observational skills to save the town The ending is sweet and shows the villagers thanking him using sign language which the book calls dancing hands I love that description

The kings battles with the dragon were always mighty and loud CLING CLANG. Living in a kingdom consumed by conflict between the local king and the local dragon who has destroyed all of the forests on the mountainside Boy is for the most part blithely unconcerned Happy in his life with his parents who understand his sign language even if the villagers do not he leads a uiet gentle existence Then one day he strays into the middle of a battle between the king s knights and the dragon and being deaf doesn t hear either side shouting at him When he finally does realize where he is his innocent uestion Why are you fighting leads to some revelations that help end the conflictOriginally published in Australia this delightful original fairy tale features a number of popular storytelling elements from dragons to knights and stars a winsome young hero who just also happens to be deaf I found the story engaging and the artwork humorous and appealing I appreciated the fact that Boy is able to communicate with the king his knights and the dragons despite not being able to speak with them directly and I particularly liked that at the end when his parents and the villagers are thanking him they do so with sign language This hints at a hopeful future in which people learn the skills necessary to communicate with Boy Recommended to anyone looking for children s stories about peacemaking andor tales featuring deaf heroes

Boy could see the fear around him and how everyone would be much happier. Boy is a great fantasy read that is engaging and has a lesson of peace and acceptance to tell it s readers The protagonist is a deaf boy who ends a war in his kingdom by getting to the heart of the conflict rather than being distracted by all the noise in the situation The book is a good one on one and group read allowing the imagination to run wild while still having a grounded meaningful lesson children and adults can apply to everyday life The illustrations are large enough for group story time but the actual story is appropriate for ages four and up The text is also a great starting place for beginning readers wanting to practice decoding in a challenging manner most likely for ages seven and up I wish the author would have included signs in the book or dedicated two pages at the end of the book to teach readers some basic sign language so they too can have dancing hands and communicate with friends who cannot hear or speak
