By Mark Baker - Carstairs Considers HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 19, 2002
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.

A Kid's Review on December 20, 2003
Format: Paperback
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.

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.

The 2nd book in the 'My Fathers Dragon' Trilogy. While still a great read and very enjoyed by my children, with the same inviting illustrations, it is written in a different style than the first book. Still a great book!

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.

Elmer and the Dragon is a wonderful children's story, I enjoyed reading it as much as my son enjoyed listening to the story. It is the second in the series of three books, the first is My Father's Dragon which would be good to read before Elmer and the Dragon. The third in the series is The Dragons of Blueland.
These are stories written many years ago and have continued to facinate children over the years. Fun to read.
