Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Fifteen tales of scary, sly, selfish, silly, and stupendous dragons are included in this entertaining collection. Ancient legends are retold for younger audiences, but the suspense and charm remain. Contemporary dragon stories add a twist to old favorites and include new surprises. Tom's dragon hides under his bed, but the Laidly Worm is a cursed princess waiting for her spell to be broken. Saint George defeats the troublesome dragon, while Sam has a memorable day at school with a friendly beast named Scales. Are dragons menacing terrors to fear or helpful neighbors to welcome? Readers can decide as they enjoy these short stories. This is a fun resource to incorporate in classrooms as read-aloud material for comprehension, discussion, or preparation for fantastic writing prompts. It provides quick tales for independent reading as well. This compilation is part of the "Kingfisher Treasury Series"; additional titles include Animal Stories, Jewish Stories, Irish Stories, Princess Stories, and more than ten others. Teachers and home schoolers will find this an enjoyable collection. 2005 (orig. 1997), Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin, Ages 5 to 8.
