Format: Paperback
Freeing the dragon in the first book (My Father's Dragon) was only half the journey. Elmer now needs to get back home. The dragon is so thankful he offers the boy a ride. But when a storm blows them off course, they find themselves on an island with canaries that are dieing of curiosity. Can they help the birds and still get Elmer home in time for his father's birthday?
This book is a fun sequel to the original. It doesn't quite hold up to the nonsensical fun of the first one, but is still a great read. Early readers will enjoy being able to get through the short chapters themselves and should enjoy the plot and characters.
This series is the perfect series to use to introduce kids to reading. They'll be able to handle the story and characters well and enjoy the journey to another world. Pick them up today and start them on the road to exploring other worlds through books.

You probably never heard of "Elmer and the Dragon" and yet the story is a classic that belongs in every child's library. What fun it was reading aloud! There are three books to the series that are connected but stand alone. See also "My Father's Dragon" and "The Dragons of Blueland" for a set that makes a perfect gift for young readers.

I remember hearing these stories as a child and loving them, now my son is loving them too. I would recommend these to kids ready to listen to simple chapter books. The stories are cleverly written so adults can enjoy the reading too. We like to read this series aloud to the kids, and if you read one they will want you to read all of them! Some nice illustrations accompany the stories.

I am reading this in my first grade class. I can't wait to get to the next book. People in this story are so curious. Once you start it, you want to get to the end and find out what happens.

Elmer And The Dragon by Ruth Stills Gannet
Have you ever ridden on a dragon? This book is about Elmer and the dragon. After Elmer rescued the dragon from Wild Island the dragon was going to fly Elmer home. But a storm hit and blew Elmer and the Dragon off course. They landed on a sandbar a couple yards from an island. The next morning Elmer and the Dragon went to the island. When they got to the island the Dragon said ," I'm stiff." Will Elmer and the Dragon get off the island?
I liked the part when the Dragon ate some tangerine peels and said they were delicious. It was kind of funny because tangerine peels would be gross to eat!
I think the author was trying to show people perseverance. Elmer and the Dragon were trying to go home when the storm hit. Even though they ended up on a sandbar, they still kept trying to get home.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Lawrence M. Sanger on August 1, 2009
Format: Paperback
The "My Father's Dragon" books are good fun, but quirky. The author has given "my father" a name (Elmer). Most of the action in this sequel occurs on "Feather Island," which can drag on in places. The book is a little misnamed, because it's really about Elmer and the dragon's trip to Feather Island and what they do there. Some of the authorial quirks--like a tangerine-only diet, with the exact number of tangerines counted out--have gotten a little old. Our little boy was squirming a lot more in this one than in the first. But we read it to the end, and the end is very satisfying. Not at all a bad book. I'd like to give it 3.5 stars.

Note, having started book #3 in the series (The Dragons of Blueland), I note that it is possible to skip #2 without really missing a beat. You may or may not want to, but there's actually a nice plot continuity, since the beginning of #3 has the dragon flying away from Elmer's home.
