Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
A little dragon teaches kids the importance of learning their home address and phone number in this adorably instructive picture book by Martha Lambert and illustrator Kate Duke.

Horatio Horndragon is a bit finicky about school, liking "dragon practice and lunch and recess" but not much else. So one afternoon when Miss Scaley gives the class an assignment to practice their name and home information, Horatio decides that "this was not one of the things he liked" and doodles "big dragons and small dragons -- all kinds of dragons -- until his paper was completely covered." As you might imagine, Horatio then gets promptly lost after following a mail-delivering dragon that night, and he winds up all alone in the forest. Fortunately, Officer Flash of the Forest Patrol finds the teary-eyed dragon, and after a scary, uncertain little while, Flash gets a radio message and Horatio gets returned to mother and father. And the next day, the critter eagerly memorizes his address and home phone number.

A sprightly, useful tool that teaches children an essential safety lesson, Lambert and Duke's book is a worthy addition to discussions about getting lost and an excellent reminder to pay attention in school. Duke's chipper illustrations of Horatio playing "capture the princess" at school and racing into Mom and Dad's open arms are simply heartwarming, and with the address and phone number practice sheet in back, your own little critters will be learning their own home digits, just like Horatio. Matt Warner

Children's Literature
Here is a humorous tale about a dragon named Horatio who doesn't always listen and doesn't want to memorize his home address and phone number. Horatio is a smart dragon who is certain he will never get lost. Horatio has a mind of his own. He will only learn what he wants to learn at school. After being sent off to school with charcoal sandwiches, Tabasco tea and Tire Tidbits, Horatio has a good morning playing a spelling game, but the afternoon session is different. The teacher, Miss Scaley, wants her students to learn their name, address, and phone number. She hands out blank sheets of paper so they can practice, but Horatio doesn't have to learn his address because he lives in a cave and his phone has a number on it. Miss Scaley insists that he copy his address down on paper, but Horatio draws dragons and other doodles. On the way home, Horatio loses his way and gets lost. He meets some animals along the way and asks for help. But when they ask for his address and phone number, Horatio can't tell them. Soon it gets dark and Horatio is frightened. Will he ever be found? At last, the Forest Patrol finds him, but Horatio can't tell them where he lives. The Forest Patrol stays with Horatio and eventually, the little dragon gets home, but he has learned his lesson—he memorizes his address and phone number. The last page of the book has a practice sheet for a child to write his name, address, and phone number. The pictures are whimsical and the blue, yellow and green colors are soothing. This is a fun book with a lesson to be learned. 2003, HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 3 to 6.

PreS-Gr 1-Horatio Horndragon knows what he likes about school. He likes dragon practice, lunch, and recess. He especially enjoys his lunch of charcoal sandwiches, Tabasco tea, and Tire Tidbits. However, the young dragon does not like to practice writing his name, address, and telephone number. Miss Scaley explains that he needs to know this information in case he is ever lost, but Horatio insists that he won't get lost. "Not now or ever!" While walking home from school, he decides to follow a delivery dragon carrying packages, and, naturally, he loses his way. Officer Flash, a winged creature wearing roller skates, appears, and the two must simply wait until the youngster's parents report him missing. Charming illustrations in pastel colors and with humorous details accompany the text. The last page allows youngsters to practice writing their name, address, and phone number. While the story is predictable and a bit wordy at times, it shows children the importance of memorizing personal information.-Kristin de Lacoste, South Regional Public Library, Pembroke Pines, FL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
