* I received a copy of this book to review from the publisher, in exchange for my honest review
When a young boy named Pete gets lost in a gigantic forest, he forms an unforgettable friendship with a giant flying dragon named Elliot. Based in the world of the film Pete's Dragon, this original story features original illustrations, explores Pete and Elliot's adventures and struggles in the forest and tells the tale of the lost years not shown in the film.
PETE'S DRAGON: THE LOST YEARS is a fantastic read. Based on the world of the live action screenplay of PETE'S DRAGON by David Lowery & Toby Halbrooks, this book is a great introduction to Pete and Elliot's world. The story follows Pete and Elliot's adventures prior to the beginning of the movie. While this story itself is not featured in the live action movie, it's one that introduces readers to Pete & Elliot, and their world. Readers will understand the relationship between Pete and Elliot more, as well as see their struggles, and go on an unforgettable adventure with these two beloved characters.
I loved this book. It's one we really enjoyed reading. I loved that there's so much to this story. One of my favorite things about this book are the illustrations. I absolutely love the illustrations in this book, and I think it will definitely appeal to readers of all ages, especially it's targeted audience. Pete's Dragon: The Lost Years is a book I would recommend picking up.
