A story with a great lesson on friendship and finding a good way out of a bad circumstance.
  JudesThree | Mar 9, 2013 |
A Great book for teaching kids about patience and friendship. The dragon is looking for a princess to eat but gets Oscar instead. Oscar outsmarts the dragon to create an unlikely friendship. ( )

A hungry dragon demands a princess...but no princess is available! So the dragon gets Oscar instead. Skinny Oscar is no fit meal for a dragon! He needs to be fattened! Oscar begins cooking marvelous meals and the dragon gets hungrier and hungrier...will Oscar trick the dragon out of his meal in the end? Or will the dragon get the better of Oscar?

This is a delightful take on the feeding-a-dragon-meals-to-wean-him-off-humans plot. It's the details that give this story it's charm - the dragon getting glasses, Oscar riding a donkey to his doom whilst wearing a baseball cap backwards. Krause's long-nosed people are the perfect mixture of silly and dramatic and the lengthier parts of the story are beautifully paced so younger children won't lose interest.

Verdict: Definitely add this to your dragon picture books! A new story time favorite!

This picture book is well illustrated in a fun and vivid manner. It is engaging for the child's eye, and teaches children the importance of inginuity and keeping tradition. A great book for a first grade classroom.
