Praise for this book

The True Story of the Komodo Dragon's merry charm maintains its hold to the finish, which features a partnership that transcends time and space. . . concluding with poignancy, the unconventional fantasy novel follows a young Komodo dragon as he becomes something much bigger - and greater - than he could have ever dreamed of. It is a feat of pure imagination. - Foreword Clarion Reviews


There's a wonderfully inventive and unexpected twist to the ending, and graphics, photos, sudden page breaks, and changing typefaces and fonts lend the book an energetic dynamic. Throughout, Bourbeau humorously breaks the fourth wall, addressing his readers and characters. Readers will be watching for more from this imaginative and humorous young writer. - Blueink Review
