More conversation than narrative, this charming book poses all manner of questions worth pondering. Would you rather…tickle a monkey or dance with goats? The more harrowing questions, like Would you rather be… swallowed by a fish or sat on by a rhinoceros? are tempered by Burningham’s wonderfully silly drawings.
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.
