A Decidedly Dysfunctional Dragon



Author: Jim Friedman | Illustrator: Patti Stren

Foy Rin Jin is a huge, fierce, bright-red dragon who breathes water instead of fire, a disaster for any self-respecting dragon. So he leaves the dragon lair in disgrace to work on his problem in the human world. When he accidentally puts out a house fire by breathing water on it, however, he becomes a hero despite himself, and if you say his name out loud very fast a few times, some readers may think that's how we got the name for other shiny red water-spraying fire stoppers. A different picture book for anyone who was ever worried about not fitting in.
