Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Elmer Elevator tells a stray cat about his dream of being able to fly, he learns of a captive dragon on Wild Island. The dragon has been forced by the jungle residents to serve as their shuttle across a wide river — and anyone who rescues the dragon from its cruel captors might be entitled to a free ride.

Elmer needs no further encouragement to stow away aboard a ship to the island, where he matches wits with hungry tigers, an irate gorilla, cranky crocodiles, and other moody creatures. A charmingly illustrated Newbery Honor Book, this comic adventure story has delighted generations of children.

Synopsis:

Young Elmer voyages to Wild Island to rescue a captive dragon by outwitting hungry tigers, cranky crocodiles, and other fierce animals. This charmingly illustrated Newbery Honor Book has delighted generations of readers.
