Kindergarten-Grade 2–In this addition to the series, the knights dragons try to make a birthday present for a friend and enlist the young knights help. However, attempts to make a cake and a card and put on a magic show result in complete messes. At midnight, the dragons cry drippy droppy dragon tears and explain that the gifts were meant for him. The Good Knight reassures them and a merry birthday celebration ensues. Plecass charming ink-and-watercolor illustrations enhance the setting and mood of this sweet, well-told story. The use of repetition and word patterns makes this a fine purchase for beginning readers.–Bobbee Pennington, Bryan Public Library, TX

K-Gr. 2. Like Good Night, Good Knight (2000), this third easy-to-read chapter book about three little dragons and their friend the Good Knight replaces the usual swashbuckling knight-in-armor action with cozy domestic farce. The dragons need a birthday gift for someone very special. Unfortunately, they don't have any money, so the Good Knight shows them how to make gifts that come "from our hearts and our hands." First they make a cake, but they wind up with one big mess. Good intentions also go awry when they try to make a birthday card and put on a magic show. The warm friendship story is beautifully captured in Plecas' ink-and-watercolor pictures, which show the dragons' cozy cave and the kitchen, study, and sitting room of the Knight's "crumbly tumbly" tower. The surprise at the end is as satisfying as the messy slapstick. A great addition to the Dutton Easy Reader series, this book will also work well for reading aloud. Hazel Rochman

We have a toddler, not a reader, and I love that the content and language is mild, yet silly and fun. Unlike other early readers we have read the characters do not tell each other to "shut up," call each other or things "stupid," etc., the content is not geared towards mostly boys or mostly girls, and the stories have a true plot.
The dragons are very much like young children - making mistakes, having fun, learning how to care for others and fix their mistakes when they happen - and the Good Knight is their ever-patient companion and teacher.
This is a great series...
- to be read aloud together, or read independently
- for boys and girls
- for children ages 2-8 (Pre-K - 2nd grade)
If you or your little one loves dragons and knights, then these are the books for you. The illustrations are adorable and the Good Knight is very patient and gentle with his little dragon friends. The books are fun to read out loud and I hope one day my son will enjoy reading them himself.
