Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The creator of A Number of Dragons returns with her 10 rambunctious baby critters; this time they are bored and grumpy, driving Ma Dragon to desperate measures. She hands them an alphabetical list and shoos them off, demanding that they ``bring treasures back to me!'' What follows is a scavenger hunt for fairly basic ABC items (apple, ball, cat, dog), carried out in a fast-paced frolic through grass and woodlands. The dragons, with their expressive eyebrows and cunning grins, track down an iguana (who looks like a distant cousin), rope an ostrich, and fight for a three-toed sock. In a world where a dragon is reduced to helpless giggles by a feather and three others can't find the kite that dangles conspicuously overhead, learning the alphabet is a hilarious event. Back at home, the dragons line up their loot in front of Ma in the correct order. This ABC hunt and the gleeful abandon with which the dragons gather the items should prove a memorable romp for young readers. (36)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1 The beginning rhyme of this lively alphabet book, a companion to Leedy's A Number of Dragons (Holiday, 1985), sets the stage for a scavenger alphabet hunt by ten bored blue dragons. On each page, they search for another objectapple, ball and so on, and the dragon who finds the object is pictured interacting with it. The F page shows one of the dragons on his back, laughing hysterically, while being tickled with a feather. When the dragons return to their lair with their 26 pieces of loot, Leedy shows a fun double-page spread depicting them, lined up, with the objects in alphabetical order; this is followed by a spread of upper- and lower-case letters in order. Parents and children will enjoy recounting the story while pointing to the various prizes. The good-natured, fun-loving dragons have fun on their alphabet hunt, as will the readers of this book.
