From the Publisher:
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. Theres 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."-Booklist.Dragons fierce and dragons friendly; dragons lurking outside castles and dragons bought at the mall; dragons' lairs and dragons' eggs; even a menacing dragon that lives in a computer--all spring to life in these enchanting poems and paintings. Full color.
Annotation:
A collection of 18 poems about dragons. Oil and gouache paintings illustrate the verses.
Author Bio
Peter Sis
Raised in Prague, Czechoslovakia, author and illustrator Peter Sis attended that city's Academy of Fine Arts from which he received both a B.A. and an M.A. He also attended the Royal College of Art in London. In addition to writing and illustrating his own books for children, Sis has also illustrated works by such other authors as Kate Banks, Sid Fleischman, and George Shannon. The illustrations for his 1997 picture-book biography of Galileo, STARRY MESSENGER, earned that book a Caldecott Honor Award. Peter Sis immigrated to the United States in 1982 and became a naturalized American citizen in 1988. His critically acclaimed autobiographical graphic picture book, THE WALL, was a 2008 Caldecott Honor Book.

Born and raised in New York City, children's poet and author Jack Prelutsky had a variety of interests and careers, such as opera and carpentry, before turning to children's poetry in his early 20s. Well known for his numerous books and collections, including THE RANDOM HOUSE BOOK OF POETRY FOR CHILDREN, IT'S RAINING PIGS AND NOODLES, and READ-ALOUD RHYMES FOR THE VERY YOUNG, he was named the first Children's Poet Laureate in 2006 by the Poetry Foundation.
