KIRKUS REVIEW

A rollicking if hardly original frolic, set to music, in which three backwoods children capture and domesticate a dragon, then, seeking out his brother, bring home another, finally find themselves in undated by baby dragons. . . ""Oh, won't, you take a dragon,/ a dragon, a dragon?/ Just pick one off our wagon/ and drag your dragon home?"" Allowing for one lapse -- if the second dragon's the brother of the (male) first, how come the babies? -- this should be fun to sing along even if it's nothing special to sing about; the pictures are similarly high-spirited.
