Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Get ready to "Shake Your Dragon Tail" to this very special 41-minute episode that combines live-action with animated musical segments from the Parents' Choice Award-winning PBS series. More than 15 Dragon Tunes inspires one neighborhood's children to start a band and make their own music by clapping their hands, stomping their feet, pounding on percussion instruments, and using their voices. They get some help from their babysitter Nina, a drummer named Harry, and singers Dan Zanes and Erykah Badu. Emmy, Max, and the dragons from Dragon Land also make an appearance. Some of this plays like a not-so-magic infomerical for Dragon Tales ("Everyone watches Dragon Tales, one child says to the camera). But as Zanes states at one point, "People playing music have the most fun." Young fans will consider this their own "Dragon Land Bandstand." Rate it a 10: It's good a good beat, and you can "Doodli-Do" to it.
