To anyone that knows me it will come as quite a shock that this is the first time I have read this even though I have owned it for years.  I can distinctly remember being in probably the third or fourth grade and turning up my nose at such an easy book.  (Yes, my being a book snob at that age explains everything.) Yet actually it is quite bizarre because I usually tend to read everything I can get my hands on.  Anyway I finally read it!  This book captures the beauty of simplicity.  This light hearted adventure can still sweep today’s readers away just as quickly as it did the audience of 1949.  A very easy read great for reading aloud or giving to a young reader.  Children today need a little bit of the random magic of a baby dragon dropping from the sky.
