These stories are perfect first chapter books for kids. The vocabulary is simple and the chapters are short. I'd forgotten just how short until I started rereading them. Yet the stories are packed full of adventure. Elmer is especially resourceful, and I still get a kick out of how he takes the simplest things and makes them work in whatever situation he finds himself.
Whether kids read these stories themselves or listen to them being read, they're sure to become favorites. And adults will enjoy the clever story lines as well.
Since the chapters are short, you can do two or three a night without losing continuity. At the same time, the story has enough depth and cleverness that the parent can remain engaged. Thus, it's a catalyst for bonding.
One of the things that makes it special is the main character. Elmer Elevator, on the advice of a stray cat, starts out on a noble odyssey to free a baby dragon from its animal tormentors. In his preparation, Elmer packs dozens of seemingly useless items, including a magnifying glass, brush, sandwiches, and lollipops. While he travels across Wild Island, all these items become essential, and you wonder if the story was being told by MacGyver :-)
We've read the trilogy to completion five times and it's still a hit with everyone.
We already have the three books but I wanted to get a set for my son's school. I ordered this one but noticed how short it is. The third book is only a few pages long. It didn't say abridged anywhere in the info or on the book jacket. But on one of the first pages it says "A Compilation" which I thought meant put together, but may also mean abbreviated. I sent it to the school anyway since I'd already paid for it. But now I'll find the three separate books so the kids can get the full story.
