The best book

This book is the best book ever!& I'm 5years old.

Great Read-Aloud!

This was a great "Chapter at a time" read for my kids when they were in Kindergarten. If tangerines are in season, pick up a couple to read while reading this book... it only makes it better!

Our favorite quote "Bum Cak, Bum Cak, we dreed our nagon!"


This was a great read with my kids. We can't wait to read the next two dragon books!
