Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Three lovable little dragons from the Dutton Easy Readers series that began with Good Night, Good Knight (2000) now appear in a large-format picture book. When a friendly old wizard asks them to watch his cats while he is gone, they readily agree. Later, unable to read his instructions, the preliterate dragons are baffled but still game. They pore over his illustrated message, guess at the words, and use clues from the pictures he has drawn, but they wildly mistake his meanings. In one case, they imagine that a pool of water means "take the cats swimming" rather than "give the cats fresh water." Well suited to reading aloud, the story is written with a keen ear for language and a good understanding of what makes young children laugh. Meisel's ink-and-watercolor illustrations, full of lively details, are as entertaining as the story. Sure to please the not-reading-quite-yet set as well as the many fans of the previous books.

Super great story. This whole series is just great. Very funny and well written and quite readable by early readers. Perfect length as well. My son loves cats and this story really appealed to him. It quickly became a favorite in our home. Get Well, Good Knight also features some pictures of the old wizards cats, so that is his second favorite out of the series. My only complaint about this book is that I prefer small format paper backs, this thing does not fit in my shoulder bag and therefore is an at home only book.

I highly recommend these books to kids reading level 2 readers or as read-alouds to younger children.

My four year old girl has been enamored with dragons for a couple of years, and has lately gotten very interested in knights, castles, etc. I quickly found that there is very little out there that is appropriate for smaller children, on the subject of knights. Either the information is too complex, or more likely, too gruesome for my taste. When I discovered this sweet series, I immediately wanted all of them.
I really like the way the verses flow and how the author repeats the action over and over. So many rhyming books for kids sound awkward and forced, but not these. They are just wonderful!
These are just fun books. I'm glad my library has them, but we are buying them too, so we can read them whenever we want! It is a refreshing angle to the knight and dragon relationship. Nearly everything else I found was adversarial, and since we love dragons, I was sorry about that.
If you have a child who loves knights and dragons, also check out Tomie Paola's The Knight and the Dragon, about a knight reading up on how to fight dragons and a dragon reading up on how to fight knights. The "fight" is hilarious and the end has a clever twist that delighted my child and me too!
The Reluctant dragon, by Kenneth Grahame, is either for an older child who can read, or a great read aloud that my four year old enjoyed, and there is a neat old Disney movie based on this book. We loved this too.

My 3 almost turning 4 year old loves this story. It tells the adventures of 3 little dragons that agree to babysit the wizard's cats. Hilariously, the dragons do the best they can with the cats getting the worst of it (great for dog lovers!) Teaches right from wrong and reinforces how important it is to learn to read. My kids like to pretend "meow" when the cats are in the cupboard. We will read the author's other books because we liked this one so much.

This book is hilarious! As a library media specialist and a mother of a three year old boy, I was happy to stumble upon this at the library. We immediately bought our own copy. The page where the dragons put the cats in the cupboard had us both reeling with laughter. If you've got a silly preschooler in your life, this is a must.

The three little dragons are on an important baby-sitting job for the wizards cats. The instructions have been left for them, but there is one problem - the dragons can't read. Trying to use the picture clues, they just can't understand why the kittens aren't enjoying swimming and being locked in the cupboard! Thank goodness - Knight to the rescue not only in reading them their babysitting instructions, but also in bringing a book to help them read!

A clever tale about misunderstandings. Pre-readers will certainly understand the dragons dilemmas and frustrations!

So I have to admit, there are not a lot of books I read for my kids that I actually enjoy....but oh boy: this one CRACKED me up! I am not sure who laughed the most; my 4yr old or myself....LOL Hilarious is the best description:-) So worth adding this book to our collection of bedtime stories!

This has got to be one of the best books I have seen for kids. It is full of humorous situations and misunderstandings. My kids love this book and enjoy having me read the book to them. The biggest problem with the book is that I have trouble reading some of the pages because I am laughing too hard. I recommend this book to anyone with of without kids. It is great for a laugh.

This book has been read about a million times for betimes, and each time when the Knight says "this does not seem right" it gets giggles. It's about three little dragons who are entrusted with the Wizard's cats while he is gone. And since they can't read the instructions, they make it up as they go along with funny results. The Good Knight comes along and helps the little dragons out. While the story line is funny and entertaining, the pictures really capture the feelings and plot of the book.
