Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In a striped orange stocking cap and clutching a teddy bear, the eponymous main character of Long's (Tickle the Duck!) catchy counting tale can't catch a break when it comes to getting some rest. "One marching dragon/ clanging on a cup./ One drowsy dragon mumbles,/ ‘Don't wake me up!'/ Two noisy dragons battle:/ Zonk! Whirl! Bleep!/ One weary dragon moans,/ ‘Please let me sleep!' " On it goes, with the sleepy dragon, much larger than the noisy little ones, getting more frustrated and occasionally resorting to yelling. Parents will recognize that the tired and cranky dragon could easily stand in for a worn-out mom or dad; younger audiences will appreciate the bouncy beat and the full-color, cartoon-styled illustrations that sequentially depict 10 very oblivious and raucous dragons finding increasingly noisy ways to entertain themselves: tap dancing, wrestling, making a berry shake ("Whirrrrrrrr..."), etc. Plenty of onomatopoeic words fill the scenes, especially in the double spread of "nine rockin' dragons" jamming in a band. Families be warned: preschoolers may be indefatigable in their requests to hear this one over and over. Ages 3-5. (Aug.)
Children's Literature - Elizabeth Fronk
This dragon that is in dire need of sleep grows on a reader. At first, the dragon appears to be too intolerant. But after smaller dragons clang on a cup, play with toys, wrestle with each other, and make snacks, the sleepy dragon's growing frustration becomes more apparent. Each two-page spread depicts the wakeful dragons making some type of noise that bothers the dragon who is trying to sleep. As more and more dragons participate in various activities, the sleepy dragon becomes more irate and louder. Finally, there are ten smaller dragons who are tired themselves and it appears that finally all the dragons may get some sleep...unless the big dragon's snoring does not waken them all. Long's rhymes are somewhat reminiscent of Dr. Seuss and the words written above the activities add just the right amount of sound effect. Readers can "hear" the activity and know why the sleep-deprived dragon is so angry. The digitally-created artwork with muted purples, greens and orange adds to the story's humor. One could conclude that the dragon who is trying to sleep is an older sibling of the smaller dragons which might resonate with little ones with older brothers or sisters. Preschoolers and kindergartners can practice their counting as well as find out if the bigger dragon ever gets his rest. Whether this story is read aloud or read alone, its brisk pace, silliness and counting come together for a very good time. Reviewer: Elizabeth Fronk
School Library Journal
Gr 2—While an adult dragon tries to sleep, a growing crowd of little guys makes all kinds of noises to keep the tired one awake. Each page turn reveals a new scene of increased chaos, progressing from "ONE marching dragon/clanging on a cup" to "NINE rockin' dragons/jam in a loud band." When "TEN tuckered dragons/think it's time for bed," the big dragon finally sleeps, but its deep snores wake up the youngsters. The rhymes are solid, though the rhythm isn't consistently strong. Interesting vocabulary adds variety to the patterned verse, particularly with the adjectives used to describe the young dragons ("feisty," "rambunctious") and the adult ("groggy," "weary"). The noisy activities go beyond the predictability of playing and fighting to include a shake in a blender and loudly tapping croquet balls. Fun sound effects move from "IEEEE!" and "BANZAI!" for wrestling to the "EEEEEEK!" and "YIKES!" of a "fright show." The digital art features clean lines and distinct colors, so the increasingly crowded pages never become too busy. Big round eyes and slightly goofy expressions lend an air of silliness to the cartoon figures, whose personalities seem equal parts dragon and child. Page layouts neatly reflect the increased chaos: the gutter separates the adult and the little dragons in opening scenes, but as the young ones grow in numbers they overflow onto both sides of the spread. A solid storytime choice that covers several popular picture-book topics, including counting, colors, dragons, and bedtime.—Steven Engelfried, Wilsonville Public Library, OR
