An “excellent collection....Prelutsky and Sis...bring to life so many sorts of dragons: the large, the small, the ferocious, the technological, the gentle, the ominous, and the disconsolate. There’s a ‘just right’ quality to the verse that makes it a pleasure to read the words aloud. Their sounds fit together with seamless craftsmanship and their sense rewards listeners with humor, imagination, and occasional poignancy....Because it appeals on so many levels, this is one poetry book that won’t siton the shelf for long.” -Booklistfind out more visit nicola’s books
Poet T.S. Eliot wrote a play about cats called Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. Many years later this play was made into the ever popular Broadway musical Cats.
