Editorial Reviews

Kathleen Odean
The irresistible knight from Good Night, Good Knight is back in another heartwarming tale. Keeping watch, the faithful knight hears a sneeze and gallops through the forest to find that his three little dragon friends have colds. With a clever use of rhythm and repetition, the story sends him twice to a wizard, whose "slimy grimy soup" does not make the dragons better. Sprightly pen-and-watercolor illustrations show the small green dragons turning up their stuffy noses at the soup, until their nurturing friend finds a better solution. This is an outstanding book with vocabulary accessible to beginning readers.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-As in Good Night, Good Knight (Dutton, 2000), Thomas and Plecas bring engaging twists to familiar story elements for beginning readers. Here the knight finds his three little dragon friends suffering with terrible colds and the noble fellow sets off to seek a healing potion. The wizard's "scaly, snail-y soup" is too dreadful to eat and his slimy, grimy brew equally distasteful, so the knight asks his mother for help. With a "little of this and a little of that," she prepares a delicious cure. Plecas's cartoon illustrations have requisite picture clues, cheerful colors, and lots of details. Ingredients for the wizard's concoctions are printed in bold type over the steam coming from his pot. Dragons whose expressions are oh-so-miserably sick miraculously beam with health and vitality on the last page. This is a royal treat to soothe any beginning reader's blues and will inspire repeated readings.-Laura Scott, Baldwin Public Library, Birmingham, MI Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Ah-choo! The three little dragons are sick and the Good Knight (Good Night, Good Knight, 1999) once again comes to the rescue. While riding through the forest, keeping watch over everything and everyone, the Good Knight hears a sneeze. He finds his dragon friends in their cave, hot with fever, noses running, and teeth "chat-chat-chattering." He visits the old wizard for a concoction that will cure the sick dragons. These little dragons are sick, but they are not sick enough to scarf down a nasty soup made of fish scales, old snails, fingernails, and lizard tails. Undaunted, our hero turns repeatedly to the wizard, who comes up with revolting concoctions that the sick but discerning dragons repeatedly reject. Finally, our Good Knight turns to the person he should have turned to in the first place—his mother. She throws in a little of this and a little of that and comes up with something that makes them slurp the soup until every drop is gone. Plecas’s endearing, whimsical illustrations record every detail, from the hero’s greenish cheeks and pale extended tongue spitting out some slimy concoction to the exhausted droopy dragon eyelids. Repeated phrases and familiar, amusing situations are the recipe for a tale that will not lose its flavor when read over and over. Emerging readers will read this one again and again, every delicious word. Long live the Good Knight! (Easy reader. 4-8)

    We picked this book up from K's school library.
    I have never read a Good Knight series.
    And I really enjoyed reading them to K. They are repetitive so that helps those that are reading.
    We Get Well, Good Knight we see the kind good knight help take care of his dragon buddies. K and I found it funny when the good knight went to see the wizard and he was adding not so good ingredients into a pot. We had a good laugh at what he was adding. This is a great read for those that I would say are level two readers. The pictures go great with the story being told.
