Patient, peaceful Phoenix tries to take care of the rambunctious and cold-ridden Dragon, which leads to hilarious and sweet results (with vibrant illustrations by the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of Beekle).

Everyone knows that dragons are fierce, and capable of taking on the world!

But this dragon can’t stop sneezing long enough to get a roar out. Even with friendly Phoenix insisting that Dragon get some rest, this powerful creature refuses to stop for any orange ginger tea or a drop of bone broth soup.

It’s only when Dragon realizes Phoenix has caught the same cold that they are both able to take the break they so badly need. This tale of helping your friends and valuing differences is a sure-thing for story time.

Praise for Roar-Choo!

I fell in love with this fierce dragon who is under the weather. Just like most of us, he refuses to take the much needed downtime to get better. He’s so sick, he can’t even ROAR! When Dragon’s friend gets sick too, he finally realizes it’s time to take a break. The illustrations are phenomenal and will keep any child’s attention (and mine too). I recommend the adult reading this book with their little to take notes – sometimes we do require downtime! Adorable book.
