Mr. Emberly has really created a wonderful book here. It tells the story of Prince Krispin who goes for a ride on his horse, dumpling. As they pass through different areas the sound of dumpling's trotting changes from the "klip-klop" of the road to the "kwish-kwash" of the field to the "kersplash-kersplosh" of the stream. Eventually they reach the cave of a dragon! When the dragon roars at them, they turn and run for home as fast as they can. The sound of Dumpling as he speeds up changes,too. So instead of the "krinch-krunch" of going up the gravelly hill, we get the "krinchety-krunchity" of galloping down the hill. My daughter has loved this book since she was 6 months old. Bouncing on my knee as Prince Krispin and Dumpling go through the different places at different speeds never fails to make her laugh. And I can't wait until she gets older and starts to notice the animals that Prince Krispin and Dumpling scare out of the way as they run away from noisy dragon! Lots of great detail here! And it all ends with a nice moral: "Going adventuring is a fine thing. But being safe at home, that's a fine thing, too!"

GREAT children's book! Age 2-5 year olds. I read this book to my kids and they loved it! Now I woud like to buy it and read it to my grandchild. Wonderful story like "going on a bear hunt," but a little prince going on a dragon hunt on his little pony Dumpling. The art work is wonderful! Once you read this book, you will fall in love with it!

Prince Krispin on Dumpling are delightful. My three year old grand daughter explores the pictures, looking for the traces of animals that are on the calm outgoing journey with the chaos of the exposed animals on the return trip. Lots of opportunity for adult participation, especially the dragon's ROAR!!!! I had this book for my children, now for my grandchildren. Timeless?

My son loved this book when it first was out. I bought it again for a young friend. My only warning is the used copy I bought had faded over the years and
for these older eyes it was hard to read! I'm not sure how you can check beforehand if buying it used online but it might be worth questioning the seller.
Hopefully it will be re-released!

This is the penultimate read-aloud childrens' book, great bedtime story. I have no idea why it hasn't been re-printed. Best of Ed Emberley.
