Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
A Komodo dragon is on the loose. When George heads for the root cellar to get vegetables for soup, he senses its presence. Mom doesn't believe him. Armed with egg beater, a roasting pan lid in hand, cookie sheets as armor under his shirt, he is St. George. When Mom finally heads for the cellar, it looks like Turnip Soup. The dragon steals the show!
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1George reads in the paper that a Komodo dragon has escaped from the local reptile house, and when his mother sends him down to the root cellar to fetch vegetables for soup, he finds the beast there, munching away. George's mother, however, does not believe him, and keeps sending him down for different items, even when he comes back time after time with an updated report of the dragon's gluttony. Only when she follows him downstairs and sees the destruction for herself does she hurriedly call out for pizza and, presumably, for the dragon-catcher, seen on the last page entering the cellar armed with a butterfly net. Unfortunately, slack language and a lack of real tension make this book a marginal purchase. The cartoon-style, pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are of average quality. Better monster stories include Dick Gackenbach's Harry and the Terrible Whatzit (Clarion, 1979) and Diane Goode's I Hear a Noise (Dutton, 1988); for a tale featuring a Komodo dragon, choose Peter Ss's Komodo! (Greenwillow, 1993).Caroline Parr, Central Rappahannock Regional Library, Fredericksburg, VA
Ilene Cooper
Young George reads the headline in the newspaper that says, "Komodo Dragon Escapes Rupert's Reptile House!" So when George's mom wants to send him down to the dark cellar for vegetables, George is reluctant. And with good reason, as it turns out. The dragon is in the cellar eating all the veggies that mother wants for her soup. Mom doesn't believe him when George tells her the only things left are turnips, but she becomes a believer fast when she heads downstairs to check out the cellar herself. The story, with its earnest hero and appealing Komodo dragon munching away, should attract an audience. Keller's pen-and-watercolor art has a 1950s feeling that suits the text. A lively choice for larger collections.
