where a children's librarian delivers the goods

Tag Archives: island

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.

With a single word of dialogue on the last panel, Faller masterfully tells the story of budding friendship between a contented dog who lives alone on an island and a rabbit who literally crash lands through his treehouse window after zooming in on a cloud.
