Once upon a Dragon : Stranger Safety for Kids (and Dragons)

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

PreS-Gr. 2. Dealing with strangers is the topic of this Canadian picture book created by the writer and the illustrator of No Dragons for Tea: Fire Safety for Kids (and Dragons) 0 (1999). A wild ride down a twisty slide propels a girl and her pal (a dragon) into a land of fairy tales. There the dragon, whose dress and appearance magically change as it portrays various characters (Red Riding Hood, the Gingerbread Man, Cinderella), falls for one storybook ruse after another. The girl protects her foolhardy green friend from pitfalls such as taking advice from a wolf, accepting candy offered at the gingerbread house, and getting into a stranger's carriage. Children familiar with the original tales will enjoy identifying the old favorites referenced here. The final pages advise parents on how to discuss "stranger safety" with children. As in the earlier book, rhymed couplets carry the story along nicely, while colorful illustrations offer action and occasional bits of humor at the hapless dragon's expense. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2006 Booklist

K-Gr 3-In this breezy rhyming text, a little girl and her dragon friend enter a fairy-tale world and meet up with villains such as the big bad wolf, the queen from "Snow White," and the fox from "The Gingerbread Boy." In each instance, the stranger attempts to entice the girl and her friend to go somewhere with them, or to eat something. While the dragon sometimes wants to give in, the child is always adamant, such as when the queen attempts to give it an apple. "Dragon!-/You don't know it's safe; it could make you quite sick./Don't fall for that evil Queen's horrible trick." The book also shows children how seemingly helpful strangers, like the footmen from Cinderella, shouldn't be trusted if they don't know them. The illustrations depicting the different fairy-tale characters help move the text along and allow younger readers to identify the stories. This is a solid addition to most collections, and a wonderful title to include in a safety kit or bibliography.-Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY (c) Copyright 2010.

After a girl and her dragon friend go down a slide, they find themselves in various familiar tales (e.g., ""Hansel and Gretel"") in which she must protect her friend from making dangerous choices (e.g., to take candy from a stranger). The concept has promise, but the rhymes (the narrator sounds older than her years) and pencil-crayon art aren't up to it. (c) Copyright 2010.
