Interesting not so much for the story as the fact that komodo dragons are just really interesting creatures. The only ones left over from the carnivorous dinosaurs, and only found natively in Indonesia. And of course I always like Peter Sís.

There is alway so much going on in a drawing by Peter Sis. The detail is rich, but more than that, there's a slight grin askance underlying many of them, something wry and warm. I enjoyed this as a reading-aloud book more than as a reading-by-myself book. ( )
