Review: Sloth is a gigantic dragon who spends his time sitting on a pile of treasures.
But he's very fat, although that word isn't used in the book. In fact he's so overweight he can't even fly.
Then a dwarf named Radish offers to help him so the dragon won't frighten him and the other dwarves and Sloth accepts the offer.
This book by Regan W. H. Macaulay will be an encouragement for kids to eat a healthy diet and stay active so, eventually, they can stretch their wings and fly like the dragon in the story.
And I won't give away what happens to the treasure.
Alex Zgud created illustrations that show the story well.
