    The best little kids book of all

    This story is very funny in a dry sort of way. It consists of short, simple sentences, each with it's own amusing illustration, understandable to a child who is just beginning to talk, yet hilarious to an adult. Example: Dragons like to play with toys. But they do not like to put them away. Far from being babyish, it's perfect for beginning readers. My daughter knew it by heart by the time she started to read, but we still enjoy it. I've bought many copies as gifts. The illustrations are amusing, cleverly retro and beautifully colored.

    Such a good book! The story is great: repetitive without being annoying; funny -- the dragon eats spaghetti in the bathtub and roasts hot dogs in the living room, but the illustrations make this book buy-worthy.
    Hanako Wakiyama is great at capturing a retro feel that is somehow modern. Mom is this book is so stylish. (I love that. Frumpy moms in illustrations depress me.) Yet, she seems relate-able to those without her slim physique and fun clothes. The little boy is adorable, and often pictured helping out around the house. You've got to love that. And the dragon -- well, any dragon that's found a drug store wearing dark glasses and hat is worth knowing. 
    One of the best books of all!

    irresistible

    all of us love this book, from it's simple and witty text to the fabulously retro yet modern illustrations. totally a winner. one you won't mind reading again and again. and again. you might want it in hardback because you'll wear it out! i've given it as a gift several times.

    also, we don't have a dog. i don't want a dog. and this book has not made my kids beg for one even though it seems it would be the perfect push for them to do so.

    Great Story

    This is a great story. My 2 year old loves this story because of the dragon, but I like it because of the illustrations. Hanako Wakiyama does a wonderful job of making the mom a modern mom. No mom jeans on this mom! I love it. Great story and great illustrations.

    Wonderful and funny!

    I am a nanny and have also worked with after school programs.The children that I have watched love this book. It has a sarcastic edge which the older children like, and it is silly in a way that younger children can also enjoy.

    Good for Toddlers Too

    I found this at the library for my 2 year old son, as he loves dogs and dinosaurs right now. Even though he's younger than the recommended age, he loves the book and sits still for the whole story. Because of the cool artwork and cheeky story, it's also really fun for the parents to read!
