My Father's Dragon

Author(s): Ruth Stiles Gannett; Ruth Chrisman Gannett

9-12 Years Middle Readers | 2019 November New Releases

"A real delight." -- The New Yorker
When Elmer Elevator strikes up a friendship with an alley cat, he learns of a baby dragon that is being forced to serve as a ferry for the selfish animals of Wild Island. Elmer determines at once to free the enslaved dragon, and with a bit of advice from the savvy cat, he arms himself with chewing gum, lollipops, rubber bands, and some other unlikely items. With these tools and his own sharp wits, Elmer is prepared to face hungry tigers, cranky crocodiles, and other challenges.
Both a Newbery Honor Book and an American Library Association Notable Book, this charming story has delighted generations of readers since its original publication in 1948. The imaginative tale has served as inspiration for a play, as well as a Japanese anime version and a forthcoming animated film. With bold artwork newly reproduced from the artist's originals, this edition of My Father's Dragon is the definitive version of an enduring children's classic.
