Overview

Oscar and the Very Hungry Dragon by Ute Krause

It’s time to feed the dragon! But this year the village is out of princesses. 

So the villagers send Oscar, a not so plump little boy

who would rather COOK dinner than BE dinner.

Putting his culinary skills to the test, Oscar shows the dragon that filet mignon and banana splits are much more delicious than princesses and children.

 

Ute Krause’s captivating artwork and engaging story create a recipe for reading

If you care about your child, you wouldn't want him or her to read a book that promotes smoking, drinking alcohol, or taking dope, so why would you want him or her to read a book that promotes blatant overeating? It's hard to believe any loving parent would, considering that childhood obesity is a major health problem now. This book contains language that is reminiscent of the feeder-feedee relationship, in which the feeder enables the feedee to eat pathologically huge amounts of food to 'fatten up.' The first night with the dragon, Oscar eats six roasted eggplants, enough pasta to feed a dragon, and lots of ice cream. The next night, he eats even more. After overeating like this, Oscar's stomach becomes "nice and round" (more feeder-feedee lingo) on his way to becoming fat. Frankly, I really don't understand how any responsible publishing company would put this out for children to read. If this kind of story is suitable at all, it belongs in the adult literature for the feeder-feedee population to peruse.
