"Noah and the Magic Dragon" is a wonderful book that may help convince reluctant toddlers that going to sleep will cause "magic" to happen. Amy McNeil has written a cute story in poem form; the subject of the story - a child fighting going to bed - is one familiar to most parents. With a few exceptions and once you determine the story is a poem - at first glance, formatting may "hide" that form - reading flows smoothly and is not awkward.

Noah is a youngster who fights going to bed with every weapon known to toddlers. He displays his temper when he throws his pajamas on the floor, slams the door, or has a tantrum. His parents, however, outwit Noah by giving him a stuffed dragon that will transport him to a fantasyland while he is sleeping. Noah loves the dragon; he finds the enchanted land to which the dragon takes him delightful. In fact, Noah would like to stay much longer than he is able. Noah discovers he can return every night, but only if he goes to sleep.

Christina Pecherle's cute, colorful illustrations compliment the story. The characters are more complex than many illustrations in children's e-books. They are detailed and have some depth. The dragon is especially appealing; he looks like a character from Disney's "Toy Story".

"Noah and the Magic Dragon" will appeal to both parents and children. It is not difficult to understand and is very relatable. It is easy to read or to read aloud. Recognizing some of his own tactics, my grandson was fascinated with this book. We read it repeatedly over a weekend.

Like many youngsters his age, Noah hated going to bed at night, and it was only after losing the nightly battle with his parents that he finally turned in for the night. One night, Noah's mom gave him a dragon to keep him company, and he drifted off to sleep more easily than he usually did. That night Noah dreamed of flying off on his dragon named Flame to a magical world where kids played games, had marvelous adventures, and had all the candy and soda pop they wanted. Wondering if it was all real, Noah asked Flame, who replied, "Anything can be real so long as you believe."

Even dreams have to end sometime, but before Noah has to leave the dream world, Flame assured him that he could return every night. After that, Noah had no problem going to sleep and actually looked forward to going to bed at night, knowing the pleasant dreams would follow.

I suppose you could interpret the story in two ways: one, where the whole story is a fantasy about magic dragons and adventures in dreamland, or two, where Noah has simply discovered how vivid and exciting dreams can be, and he now looks forward to going to sleep and dreaming. Either way, knowing his dreams would come each night made Noah much more amenable to going to bed.

Amy McNeil has written a fanciful story in rhyming prose that not only serves as fine entertainment for bedtime stories of children but also carries the reassurance that going off to sleep offers the wonderful opportunity to enter Dreamland. For children who fear the dark or who greatly regret having to go to bed, this story is an invitation to a spectacular party! McNeil has wisely joined forces with illustrator Cristina Pecherle who makes McNeil’s gently rhyming words come alive.

Noah has a problem: he hates going to bed, preferring to stay up all night if he could. Bedtime usually produces tantrums and bad behavior until his mother solves the problem by giving Noah a toy dragon named Flame: Noah loves his new toy who will keep him company while he sleeps. But sleeping is where the fun begins. Flame comes alive in Noah’s sleep and flies him off to Dreamland where Noah meets new friends, plays, enjoys gumdrop rain, tasty cupcakes and goodies, a trip to Mount Chocolate, a river of Coca Cola, a forest of candy canes, and a staff to serve his every need. But come the hour of six and all disappears because it is the time to go home – or, to wake up. But now Noah is happy to go to bed and go to sleep knowing that Dreamland is not far away, courtesy of Flame his stuffed dragon. ‘Don’t worry, Dreamland will always be there’.

This is a fun to read and hear and see book that will doubtless do away with the fear of bedtime for children with that aversion. A happy book with a very solid lesson or message. Grady Harp, October 13

This is one of my favorite new bedtime stories. I might start imagining Noah's dream world myself before bed now. The part with the lawyer was funny to me. Kind of random. This book has a lot of imagery. It's great. I would gift it to friends I like it so much.

This read aloud book has it all…an excellent story, adorable pictures, and a great message (especially for kids who hate going to bed)! The narrative is fun, imaginative and extremely entertaining for the little ones. Noah’s adventure to “Dreamland” is jam packed with all kinds of things kids will love (a magic dragon, treasure hunting in a castle, gumdrop rain, hiking in a forest of candy canes, dancing monkeys, kids playing everywhere, and much more). The rhymes are smooth and fun to read. The illustrations are adorable, colorful, and perfectly coordinated with the text. While any kid would enjoy this book, it is especially good for kids who dislike going to bed, as they will relate to Noah’s experience. If you have a child who hates bedtime, this book could easily be paired with a stuffed dragon to encourage your child to drift off to his or her own special “Dreamland.”
