Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-2-- An endearing blue dragon is the star of this series for beginning readers. In Dragon Gets By , groggy Dragon has a mixed-up day. He reads an egg, fries his morning paper, and sweeps his dirt floor until it becomes a basement. Finally, exhausted, he goes to sleep, but only after watering his bed and curling up on his plants. In A Friend for Dragon , the lonely fellow, encouraged by an unseen mischievous snake, adopts an apple for a friend. Once the snake is gone, the apple's conversation is limited, but Dragon finds many good qualities in his new pal--it is a good listener and it is always willing to share. Unfortunately, the apple is left unattended and is devoured by a hungry walrus. A heartbroken Dragon buries his friend but his loneliness is short-lived. An apple falls on his head and Dragon looks up to see a treeful of round, red friends. The gentle humor of these stories is accentuated by Pilkey's simple but engaging cartoons. Swirls and dots bejewel the skies, giving the pictures a colorful, childlike appeal. Dragon's good-natured naivete should win him many new friends. --Lori A. Janick, Parkwood Elementary School, Pasadena, TX

    Great story!

    My granddaughter loves the Dragon series, I wish there were more. The book is just right for lower grade readers, and my older grandchild even loves the story.

    The Best Dragon Book Ever!

    My 5 year old son loves the Dragon series, and this is definitely the best of the bunch. Dragon's having a bad day, and his mishaps are laugh out loud funny even for me when I read it!! I dare anyone to read the house cleaning chapter and not giggle! The record for this one is 7 days in a row as the "must read" bedtime story.

    A Great Story

    Dragon Gets By is about a dragon that does everything wrong when he is groggy. Here are some examples of his hilarious behavior. He fries the morning newspaper and reads an egg. Then butters his tea and sips a cup of toast. Dragon makes a humongous hole in the floor. Dragon goes to the grocery store and buys so much food that it won't fit in his car. Dragon eats so much that he can¡¯t fit into his yellow car. Dragon crashes down the hill holding onto his car. He hits a mail box, a telephone pole, and his house. Dragon looks in his cabinet and says, ¡°Time to go shopping.¡± Dragon waters his bed and sleeps on his plants. This book is good for young readers. My opinion is that Dragon Gets By is good for ages 5 through 8 and grades 1 through 3.
