Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

There's a dragon on the farm, and the heat from its breath is wreaking havoc: the eggs turn hard-boiled while they're still in the henhouse, the cows produce yogurt instead of milk, and the wheat gets toasted in the fields. Izzie is convinced that the roaring dragon sounds "hurt, not fierce," so she defies her protective parents ("Go inside and with luck it will fly away soon," says Mom, an admonishment that will immediately resonate with youngsters), and she soon discovers a scared, puppy-like dragon stuck in the farm's well. Sykes's (Dora's Eggs) text tends toward the deadpan, leaving plenty of room for Williamson (Hound Dog) to shine. The geometrically stylized illustrations bubble with a gleeful faux-naïf sophistication: the characters are sweetly silly (especially the parallelogram cows and a sheep who loves to pose), and the flattened perspectives make everyone look as if they're on comically tenuous ground. Curving type nods at the topsy-turvy plot, also calling attention to the goofy details packed into the art (don't miss the juggling cat). Ages 3-7. (Sept.)

Children's Literature
A terrible roar announces the arrival of a dragon at Izzie’s father’s farm. Its breath hardboils the eggs. Her parents hope it will fly away, but fear it is too dangerous for Izzie even to peek at it. It soon has turned the cows’ milk into yogurt and the wheat field to toast. While Izzie’s dad calls REMOVE-A-DRAGON, she decides the dragon just sounds hurt. Bravely she goes to see, finding only a tiny, crying dragon trapped in the well. With the help of her family, the dragon is free, and available for heating milk, boiling eggs, and making toast on request, for a happy ending. The rather silly story is reinforced by Williamson’s silly, cartoon-like characters and lively page layouts, with bits of text integrated into the double-page scenes. The animals have bulky bodies and pipe-stem legs. Cows hug each other, cats juggle hard-boiled eggs, sheep gambol in the air, and the dragon roars in large, bold letters in this zany world. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Kirkus Reviews
Little Izzy saves the farm from a medieval threat. A distant roar tells everyone that a dangerous dragon is near. Dad tells daughter Izzy that the dragon will surely fly away in a day or so. If only. The dragon stays. Scared chickens lay hard-boiled eggs, the cow gives yogurt and the wheat field burns, giving off the smell of toast. While dad calls REMOVE-A-DRAGON, Izzy decides to face the problem head-on. Instead of a huge fire-breather, she finds a tiny orange dragon trapped in the well and crying for help. Izzy enlists the whole family in helping to pull the dragon free. He becomes part of the farm family who gets hot milk, toast and hard-boiled eggs every morning. Williamson's unique and stylish illustrations experiment with shapes, building unusual figures by combining them on pages full of color and pattern. Appealing and quirky, if slight. (Picture book. 3-6)
