About the Author

Ruth Stiles Gannett wrote My Father's Dragon just a few years after her graduation from Vassar College in 1944. It was an immediate success, becoming a Newbery Honor Book, and was soon followed by two sequels, Elmer and the Dragon and The Dragons of Blueland. All three dragon stories have been continuously in print in the more than 40 years since their publication. The author's other books include Katie and the Sad Noise and The Wonderful House-Boat-Train. She is married to the artist and calligrapher Peter Kahn. They have seven daughters and seven grandchildren.

Very cute and clever! I loved this story about Elmer, a boy who runs away from home to rescue a baby dragon, when I was a kid and am now sharing it with my own daughter (4 years old). She can't wait to read each chapter!

My squirmy butt son loves this! He just turned 5 a few weeks ago and can't get enough! When we finished I had to run out and buy the other two! He's so excited ot read a new chapter each night. IT's a great simple story even roudy kids will love and it's engaging enough that adults will think it clever. You can tell it's an older story, but it has charm today's younger reader's simply cannot compare to! I HIGHLY reccomend this to kids from 3-8!

This is such a wonderful book. It has a good ending that leads into other books written by this author. This is a must read for children. It really gets the imagination going. It is wonderful to have books out there like this.
