Drystan The Dragon and Friends Book Series by Janice Spina

Drystan and Durward Save the Day by Janice Spina.

Drystan the Dragon and Friends Series Book 1.

This is a magical series about Drystan the dragon and his friends.

These dragons are colorful, engaging and fun to read about.

They teach children the importance of friendship, caring for one another, being kind to others, and it’s okay to be different.

All dragons are of different colors and their names begin with the letter ‘D’ – a fun way for young children to learn the letter ‘D’ and colors.

In Book 1 Drystan makes a few friend, Durward, who invites him to visit the Land of the Rainbows.

While they are there they have an adventure. Find out what the dragons do to save the day.

5 Stars: As a grandmother, I know how important friends are to our children and who better to show the way than two beautifully illustrated dragons. As parents and grandparents, we seek to purchase books that will capture the imagination, while teaching valuable life lessons.

Award Winning Author Janice Spina and her husband John (illustrator) has created this amazing first book, in this dragon series.

Brightly colored illustrations will capture the child’s imagination as they read, or as an adult reads to them. The rhymes will stick in their mind, as he or she discovers a friendship between a red dragon named Drystan and a blue dragon named Durward.

The adventure unfolds in the Land Of Rainbows, where the two dragons extend their friendship to a colorful mother blue bird and her family, while lessons about helping others are learned.

I highly recommend this book as a good bedtime story, or go anywhere travel book. Five more books in this series are in the creative process. I invite you to purchase ‘Drystan the Dragon and Friends Series Book 1’ and watch for each new dragon book as it is published.

Review by Sara123: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. To Be Different is Okay! Author Janice Spina’s second book in her new series, “Drystan the Dragon and Friends” is a fine addition to her ever-growing list of books written for enriching the lives of young readers. In the second volume, “Damara Helps Drystan Find His Roar”, Damara, a green dragon who is different than others, does not worry about what people say. She knows she’s not like everyone else, but owns her differences and is proud of who she is. This terrific message intertwines nicely with the little tale of Damara’s encounter with Drystan, who is also taught a lesson, courtesy of his new friend. The illustrations are lovely, created by the author’s partner in life and work, Mr. John Spina. The terrific team’s growing library is impressive and recommended.

Review by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne (Children’s Author): 5.0 out of 5 Stars. You’ll love Drystan and Damara’s story! Gifted author, Janice Spina has crafted another lovely book for little ones. In this second book in her series of dragon stories, Damara the little green dragon is proud of the fact she is different. She never worries about what other people think. In her travels she meets Drystan, a dragon who can’ t roar. Damara sets out to solve the problem. Did it happen because Drystan ate to many frogs, or fish? Was it something else? Damara and Drystan each learn important lessons from their experience. Young children are sure to remember this story and the messages it shares.

From The Author: I have always loved dragons! So do many children out there! That is why I wrote this book along with five other books coming in this series. These dragon books are written in rhyme with life lessons. All the dragons’ names begin with the letter ‘D’ and are of different colors. Reading these books is a fun way for children to learn the letter ‘D’ and colors while they are encouraged to be kind to one another, respect others, and it’s okay to be different.

I hope children will enjoy reading and learning from these books.

I will be publishing book 2 this year illustrated by my talented husband, John. He will illustrate two more in 2021 and in 2022 to complete the set. It was so much fun to write this series that I may do another series about another animal or mythical creature in the future.

If you enjoy this book or any of my books please write a review wherever you purchased the books. I also love to hear from readers and will post, with your permission, any reviews you write on my blog. Happy reading!

Thank you for your kind support!

Love, Janice

Review by Mystery “Fran”: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Be happy with who you are!Book 3 in the Drystan the Dragon and Friends Series is a gem! Delbert is a very shy, sweet dragon who is unhappy with his color. Drystan discovers Delbert hiding, and befriends him. He eventually helps his new friend realize that he is special no matter what color he is. This book imparts a very powerful message to children that inspires self-confidence and strength of character – be happy with who you are. Young children and the adults in their lives will be looking forward to meeting more of Drystan’s friends In the future!

Review by Michelle Clements James: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Even if we’re different, we’re still special. Delbert is a brown dragon who can turn blue. He is shy and likes to hide where no one can see him. He is a kind dragon. One day, he was blending in with a brown tree and moved behind a pile of stones and sticks to hide. He didn’t know that Drystan the red dragon was watching him from his cave. When Drystan approached Delbert and asked what he was doing, Delbert said, “I’m trying to hide from you.” When Drystan asked why he was hiding, Delbert replied it was because he was shy. Drystan, being helpful as a good dragon can be, told Delbert to eat blueberries. Delbert turned blue but decided he liked being brown better. He was worried that his family wouldn’t know him. Drystan told him how to turn back to brown. Delbert, being the polite and kind dragon that he was, thanked Drystan. Drystan told Delbert not to be shy because he would always be his friend and that, no matter what color he was, he would always be special.

Drystan the Dragon and Friends Series, Book 3: Delbert Finds Himself is a darling story that teaches young children to be friendly and kind and that no matter how different we look, we are still special. The author weaves all the books in this series into enchanting stories for the youngest book lovers while demonstrating an important lesson. Her books are beautifully illustrated with colorful pictures by her husband, John Spina. This book makes a perfect gift for young children in your life.

I was given a copy of this book by the author and received no compensation for my honest review

From The Author: I have always loved dragons! So do many children out there! That is why I wrote this book along with five other books coming in this series. I want children to feel good about themselves as Delbert does when he realizes after changing colors that his own color is what he is happy to be. In this troubled world children need to know it’s okay to love the skin you are in.

These dragon books are written in rhyme with life lessons. All the dragons’ names begin with the letter ‘D’ and are of different colors. Reading these books is a fun way for children to learn the letter ‘D’ and colors while they are encouraged to be kind to one another, respect others, and it’s okay to be different.

I hope children will enjoy reading and learning from these books.

I will be publishing book 2 this year illustrated by my talented husband, John. He will illustrate two more in 2021 and in 2022 to complete the set. It was so much fun to write this series that I may do another series about another animal or mythical creature in the future.
