I have to say the illustrations are captivating! Lots of adventure and bold colors!
Charlie is a unique young boy. He has Rosie who is his pet dragon. They love to play superheroes.
Charlie also had to be aware of Rosie’s bedtime. He is a good dragon owner!
Charlie is very prepared to help Rosie settle in for the night. He has a long checklist of different things to do.
For instance filling a water bottle, finding Rosie’s favorite stuffed animal Vern, and grabbing other essential supplies!!
Rosie is such a delightful dragon! I found myself laughing throughout the story especially when it was bath time!
Charlie is a good dragon owner! He thinks of everything! Bedtime is a success!
Enchanting, vivid pictures illustrate all the mischief Rosie gets into to avoid bedtime. Poor Charlie has his hands full!
The antics are laugh-out-loud funny, but also, in some cases, a little scary. (I don’t want to give any spoilers.)
Rosie’s creative and sometimes unintentional consequences while trying to avoid bedtime may cause some parents to feel the story sets a bad example. Yet the story is not written to teach as much as to entertain. Little children may recognize themselves and Rosie’s antics in the story. Even though some of the shenanigans could hardly be duplicated, Rosie the Dragon and Charlie Say Goodnight does offer an opportunity to teach the importance of bedtime.
Overall, the story is cute and enjoyable. The illustrations are bright and are true to the adventures.
Rosie the Dragon and Charlie Say Goodnight is a picture book. The story should be easy for a beginning reader with a little help from a parent or sibling. It’s a cute story to read to children from Pre-K up.

Us whose had children or have young children, know the rituals of bedtime and how looooong that process can become!
In this book it’s a young boy trying to get his dinosaur to bed, oh wait, where’s his cuddles he takes to bed with him, where’s Vern! And parents know how long that takes to find it.....
Teeth to brush
Oh a last drink etc etc
Oh no, a thunder storm ......
The pictures are exceptional in this book.
I think any parent or grandparent reading this to their child will find it so true but also hilarious.
