PreS-K-What a treat when Yolen employs her fantasy-writing talents for the younger set. In fewer than a dozen sentences, readers discover dragons' morning rituals, from fang brushing to "breakfast waffles,/topped with syrup,/which makes dragons/really cheer up." Luckily for the small knight who assists with their ablutions, part of the schedule includes delivering him to school. Anderson's familiar golden-washed cartoon paintings embellish the humor. Details like a fire extinguisher labeled "In case of dragon breath," as well as the dragons' flying goggles, mean this story's popularity will spread like fire.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VAα(c) Copyright 2011.

For a young boy knight, it’s time for school, but as Mom’s note reminds him: “Don’t forget to wake the dragons” before leaving. Comical chaos begins as the boy, assisted by his canine companion, helps two huge, sleepy-eyed, fire-yawning dragons stumble from bed, brush their teeth, and eat waffles. Then, after helping “wipe their faces, / runny noses, / get into their / outdoor clothes-es” (which include flying goggles and jaunty scarves), the dragons kiss their dragon mom good-bye and fly away, after dropping the boy off at knight school. Anderson’s charming, richly hued illustrations animatedly depict the armor-clad little knight and the cute, expressive dragons’ antics. The rhymes are simple, if sometimes awkwardly phrased, and droll touches abound in the text, which highlights and celebrates responsibilities, from morning prep to providing transport. Like Yolen’s How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? (2000), this delightful offering interweaves fun fantasy and familiar getting-ready routines in an entertaining, enjoyable read that’s great for budding knights, dragon buffs, and caregivers alike.
