About the Author:

Jim Friedman is a songwriter and playwright living in New York City. The Mysterious Misadventures of Foy Rin Jin is his first picture book.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-An amusing and wisecracking tale of a big, red, shiny dragon who breathes water instead of fire. Foy Rin Jin runs away from Dragon Plateau and the well-meaning but hurtful silence of his fellow dragons who won't openly acknowledge his problem. In the unfamiliar land of LowLow Flateau, populated with humans, he finally gains acceptance, and even adulation, because of his unique trait (though he never stops aspiring to breathe fire). Youngsters will be attracted to the vivid color and bold, loose line work of the illustrations, and to the snappy dialogue and smart-alecky retorts appearing in dialogue balloons ("Get a grip"). There is a lot of text to wade through here. Despite the lightheartedness of the plot and eye-catching illustrations, younger children may grow restless before the punch line is revealed in a postscript (hint: what's red and puts out fires and sounds like "foy rin jin?").
