From the first page I was hooked and spent the next hour with this charming book. It was obviously written for the child that still lives within me.
It is beautifully written and is a credit to the author for it has a timeless feeling about it.
I thoroughly recommend it for ages from 7 year to 70 years young.
Meanwhile, I love it myself! It is charming and hilarious, with a satisfyingly happy ending for all (even the badger). Michael Hague's idea of the dragon is not what I would have pictured, making me think of Bilbo and Smaug for some reason, but the rich detail--especially in one of the first full-page illustrations where the boy is reading on his bed--is stunningly gorgeous and makes me want to pore over the book again and again. In addition, though a paperback, the pages are glossy and sturdy and are holding up well.
Definitely recommend this one.
Pair it with that old musical "PETE'S DRAGON". And "Puff the Magic Dragon". Oldies but goodies.
I like a story with a dragon AND a happy ending.
The kindle edition is just words, I have no complaints.
