Information

My Father's Dragon--a favorite of young readers supplied that the 1940s and a Newbery honor book--captures the nonsensical logic of childhood in an amusingly deadpan fashion. Author Ruth Stiles Gannett 's stand-alone sequel, Elmer in addition to the Dragon, and her third volume, The Dragons of Blueland both received starred reviews in School Library Journal and are as fresh and original as her first. The story begins when Elmer Elevator (the narrator's father as a boy) runs away with an old alley cat to rescue a flying baby dragon being exploited on a faraway island. The quirky, comical adventure ends with a heroic denouement: the freeing of the dragon. (Ages 4 to 8) Abundant black-and-white lithographs by Ruth Chrisman Gannett (the author's stepmother) add an evocative, lighthearted mood to an already enchanting story. With the assist of two dozen pink lollipops, rubber bands, chewing gum, along with a fine-toothed comb, Elmer disarms the fiercest of beasts on Wild Island.
