andlt;b andgt;Wake up with a pair of sleepy dragons and the knight who must get them ready for school!andlt;/bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;iandgt;Dragons wake up, andlt;/iandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;iandgt;Dragons rise, andlt;/iandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;iandgt;Dragons open andlt;/iandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;iandgt;Dragon eyes.andlt;/iandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp; From tumbling out of their humongous blankets to devouring a breakfast of catapulted waffles, these characters and their loveable antics fill the pages with luminous color and dragon-size fun. A joyful collaboration between two bestselling talents, author Jane Yolen and illustrator Derek Anderson, this book will make any young reader fly out of bed.

Review:

"Dragons are just not morning people. They 'bumble' and 'tumble' out of bed, and the doughty little knight who is their master risks life and limb just getting them to 'Put their jammies in the hamper.' But with a little patience and a delicious breakfast of waffles (served via catapult), the dragons are ready to serve as a form of airborne transportation to school that's much more awesome than any old yellow bus. Yolen's (the How Do Dinosaurs? books) informal, pared-down rhymes have some minor bumps ('breakfast waffles,/ topped with syrup,/ which makes dragons /really cheer up'), but they serve their purpose: setting up Anderson's marvelous acrylic paintings. With cinematic framing, sculptural shapes, a strong sense of physical comedy, and a fittingly medieval palette of saturated jewel tones, Anderson (the Little Quack series) portrays his horned dragons as hulking slugabeds who morph into surprisingly nimble winged beasts. The young knight scampers around their massive bodies like a practiced mountain climber, willing to risk getting stomped for the reward of having the ultimate lift to Knight School. Ages 4 — 8."
