A distinguished and adventurous mouse sets off to find his place in the world.

Equal parts hilarity and exciting adventure, this 1948 classic chapter book tells the tale of a boy on a quest to rescue an overworked baby dragon from an island bristling with wild beasts.  The first in a trilogy that includes Elmer and the Dragon and The Dragons of Blueland.


Mr. Putter and tabby are bored, and hot, and they need an orangesicle…Luckily, their adventurous neighbor Mrs. Teaberry and her dog Zeke are always up for some fun.  They head off for a sightseeing cruise, and have such a fabulous time, it’s hard to peel themselves (and especially Zeke!) off the boat.
