Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The brightly hued illustrations conjure up an imaginary land that tickles the funnybone."  —Kirkus Reviews on Mr. Wolf's Pancakes
School Library Journal
Gr 1—A big dragon meets his match when he tries to frighten a playful baby in this not-so-scary picture book. The bad-tempered creature snorts silver sparks, puffs fire, and farts purple smoke as he attempts to intimidate the child into handing over his treasure. Baby responds by gurgling, burping, and pooping, which the flustered dragon discovers "certainly isn't treasure." In fact, it is the baby who tames the dragon by crying until the monster plays with him and cradles him like a precious jewel. Cheerful watercolor pastels make the beast look friendly in spite of all his bluster. Stars, swirls, and humorous details in the pictures add to the fun. Preschoolers and children with younger siblings may enjoy this silly romp.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT
