Where the Dragons Live is a sequel to another Serena Geddes book called Rosie and Rasmus. The dragon Rasmus says goodbye to Rosie, journeys to the land of dragons (the Island of Dragons to be precise) and cannot wait to make new friends. The problem is Rasmus is not like the other dragons. They roar, play rough, little mean, are big and tall, breath fire and tell him he is not a real dragon. But then again, what is a real dragon? And Rasmus learns that your wings might be small, and you might not be mean, but there are many ways to be a real dragon. As well as many ways to be a good friend.
The illustrations are super cute. Not overly detailed, but get the job done well. They are light, but still good color. The setting is pretty, a nice happy island, with rocks and an ocean. There are colorful dragons and delightful images to show the action. The package is overly happy and sugary.
I am not a huge fan of the overall story, as it has been done before, but I like that there are a series of books (or at least two and that makes me think there will be more). I do recommend reading Rosie and Rasmus first as I had forgotten some of the things that happened in that book and this book starts with assuming you know who the main two characters are. Ages 5 and up are most likely the best audience for the book, but younger kids can enjoy the illustrations.
