Waking Dragons

Jane Yolen

An enthusiastic little knight and his faithful puppy are in charge of waking sleepy dragons – they tug on blankets, dodge fiery yawns, and patiently roll them out of bed. They serve breakfast waffles with a catapult and then the winged dragons give the knight a ride to school. Yolen’s brief rhymes and Anderson’s bright acrylic paintings combine to make a lively read-aloud. From the author of How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? (2000) and Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters (2011) Ages 5-6
