KIRKUS REVIEW

What fun, what fun -- a treat for young and old! Poo-Poo is a little boy with a clever father and a very kind mother. Quite casually a dragon comes to stay, who is rightfully called Horatio. He easily enters the every-day human life, working in a grocery-store, drinking sodas, going to school and picnicking, but each experience is so amusing that it must be shared immediately. Ermyntrude, another dragon, enters the household, her beautifying at a beauty parlor, her triumphant egg-laying, are as wonderful as Horatio's masculine exploits. You will never forget the sizzling sodas, the radio swallowing, the steamer paddling or any part of the book. It seems that the author first told the stories to his own son to induce him to eat.
