Henry and the Chalk Dragon by Jennifer Trafton illustrated by Benjamin Schipper

Henry hides his art on his chalk board bedroom door and in his notebook.  He does not want anyone to laugh at him.  Then when he tries to erase his dragon, it escapes off his door, taking with it Henry's art notebook.  Now Henry's imagination and art are loose in the school, causing havoc!  Can Henry practice his chivalry rules and save Squashbuckle Elementary School?
A book that celebrates imagination and the power and beauty of art.
Excellent word choice.
The book probably won't appeal to older elementary students.
I liked Ms. Trafton's book, The Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic better.
-Borrowed from the library.
