Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons is a read that will keep children engrossed, enthralled and enchanted until the very last page. Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons is a book that was so phenomenal and addictive that my children found it unputdownable. As I read this with my eldest children, they were impatient as they moved to the next page thanks to the stories engrossing literature, emotional plot and let’s not forget astonishing and memorable characters. These reasons listed above and so many more I am yet to list, is why I recommend that all of you lovely book readers read Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons. I promise you now that your children will not be disappointed if they choose to read this book; never before have I read anything quite so brilliant so please, I urge all of you and your children to read and immerse yourself in this wonderful book! If you need more convincing, then read the rest of my review to hear more about this dazzling piece of literature!

Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons is an adorable, poignant and memorable book that will introduce the reader to the fantastic Ellie. Ellie is an elephant, and Ellie recently has moved homes with her parents, and during this time Ellie is struggling with her emotions. Ellie has been feeling a roller coaster of emotions with them mostly being negative and what is worse is that she does not understand what they truly mean. Ellie throughout the book, along with her ‘four magical friends’ will learn the importance of emotions and understanding them as well as understanding and having empathy. The exceptional Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons will teach young readers ‘emotional intelligence,’ and I can’t stress enough how important this is so I hope that all the parents and guardians reading this will share this book with their children as it truly is entertaining as well as poignant.

The synopsis of Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons is gripping, glorious, and let’s not forget poignant. The novel has a plot that has surprised me more than once thanks to its captivating and absorbing nature. One thing is for sure when you read Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons, and that is you will never be bored reading because it is a diverse all-consuming assault of brilliance that will keep you motivated to read until the very end. It is like the author has a binding spell on young readers and the only way to break this spell is to immerse yourself in the layers of the book fully.

The story of Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons is an incredibly dynamic, unique piece of work that will entertain children from start to finish. The pacing of this story was wonderfully written and plotted so that my children (or even me!) did not get bored at any given time. I always measure my likeness of a book on whether I find myself looking at the page number; if I do in fact do this I know that the novel is taking its toll… in other words it is dragging, and I want it to end but Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons was different than this and not like this at all as never once did I find myself referring to the page number as I read the book with my children and that is a sure sign that Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons is a compelling piece of work that draws the reader in and captivates them to read.

The author of the novel Joseph Goodrich can only be described as a fantastic writer. The objective of any great writer is that of any kind of artist; it is to communicate a message and to delight the recipient whether that be the listener, the viewer or the reader… in this case the reader. Goodrich has wonderfully entertained his readers and has communicated the novel’s message to me as well as my children, soundly and perfectly and that is why all children should have a read of Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons. I adored that Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons is so much more than an entertaining children’s book and is this as well as a poignant story that will help young readers understand their own emotions which is something I am very keen for my children to learn so I am so pleased to have found this book and why I feel so strongly about other children reading it.

To summarize my thoughts on the poignant book that is Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons I would say if you are a reader who is tired of your children reading the same old books that are lackluster and forgettable and feature no poignant messages then take a chance with Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons because I promise you now that they will not be disappointed. My rating for this beautiful book, of course, has to be five stars!
