My Father's Dragon

SKU: DP492834

We have run out of stock for this item.

When Elmer Elevator tells a stray cat about his dream of being able to fly, he learns of a captive dragon on Wild Island!

Ages: 6-10

The dragon has been forced by the jungle residents to serve as their shuttle across a wide river — and anyone who rescues the dragon from its cruel captors might be entitled to a free ride.
Elmer needs no further encouragement to stow away aboard a ship to the island, where he matches wits with hungry tigers, an irate gorilla, cranky crocodiles, and other moody creatures. A charmingly illustrated Newbery Honor Book, this comic adventure story has delighted generations of children.

Reprint of the Random House, New York, 1948 edition.
