WILLOUGHBY AND THE TERRIBLY ITCHY ITCH by Pam Halter
Willoughby has an itch he can’t reach. An itch he can’t scratch. Not just a little itch, a TERRIBLY ITCHY ITCH. Nothing he does will make it go away. What can a dragon do when he has an itch he can’t reach? He calls for help, of course! See how some unlikely friends get together to relieve Willoughby of his terribly itchy itch.
Willoughby is a young, somewhat clumsy, gentle dragon who is learning to live and interact with friends from the Land of Dern. In this picture book series for ages 4-8, Willoughby learns about friendship, getting along with creatures different from himself, and discovers he can do things he never thought he could.

"Wonderful" and "Amazing"
My 5-year-old greatly enjoyed this beautiful read. When I asked his thoughts on it he said it was "wonderful" as well as "amazing." He also mentioned that he is looking forward to reading more in the series, especially the one about the cake. He said he liked the illustrations as well and actively listened as I read. Recommended to those who enjoy stories that talk about helping one another while being told in a fun and beautiful way. *(I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts expressed are mine and my 5-year-old and we were not required to write a positive review.)*
