A wonderful collection of poems about dragons, with beautiful illustrations. My favourite poem overall in the book was "The Last Dragon" by Ian Larmont. you could feel the energy and life fading from the beast in this sad poem. Another funny poem I enjoyed was "The School of Young Dragons" by Chris Foster. I particularly like the last few lines of this one - our lessons are exiting, better than reading and writing. In the overall series of poems, this is my overall favourite. ( )

First words
There were rumbles of strange jubilation
in a dark, subterranean lair,
for the dragon was having a birthday,
and his colleagues were gathering there.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192763075, Paperback)

Here is a collection of fabulously funny poems put together by John Foster and illustrated with creative genius by Korky Paul. There are poems by a range of authors about dragons in all sorts of situations - chasing teachers, playing the banjo, feasting, fighting knights, or being taken home as pets. Guaranteed to delight, this is a perfect introduction to poetry either at home or at school. John Foster and Korky Paul's poetry partnership began over 10 years ago, with the publication of Dragon Poems. The combination of John's inspired and witty selection of poems, with Korky's crazily imaginative and anarchic illustrations, has proved exceptionally popular.
