We love this classic trilogy all together in a hardcover edition! Ruth Styles Gannett's stories about Elmer's adventures with a friendly baby dragon have enchanted readers for over 50 years. Her step-mom (also named Ruth!) provided unforgettable illustrations, which are interspersed generously throughout. Reacquaint yourself with (or discover for the first time!) Elmer and his friends - you will be happier for it! Recommended for ages 8-12.
This volume contains three books: My Father’s Dragon When Elmer Elevator hears about the plight of an overworked and underappreciated baby flying dragon, he stows away on a ship and travels to Wild Island to rescue the dragon. This book won the Newbery Honor in 1948.
Elmer and the Dragon A stand-alone sequel to My Father’s Dragon, in which Elmer Elevator and the flying baby dragon help the king of the canaries find treasure.
The Dragons of Blueland In this third and final installment of the classic My Father’s Dragon trilogy, Boris, the baby dragon, is excited to be heading home to Blueland and looks forward to reuniting with his family.
