THE DRAGONS ARE SINGING TONIGHT by Jack Prelutsky

THE DRAGONS ARE SINGING TONIGHT

by Jack Prelutsky & illustrated by Peter Sís

Age Range: 4 - 10

Pub Date: Sept. 1st, 1993
ISBN: 0-688-09645-X
Publisher: Greenwillow

 Eighteen deftly fashioned verses in the trademark Prelutsky style, with catchy rhythms, clever rhymes, and witty wordplay and conceits (``If you don't believe in dragons,/It is curiously true/That the dragons you disparage/Choose to not believe in you''). For each, Sis provides a large, gloriously imaginative spread featuring innovative variations on traditional dragons, in wonderfully fantastical or entertainingly ordinary settings (``I have a secret dragon/Who is living in the tub...''). A must for dragon fanciers and for all those who enjoy light verse. (Poetry/Picture book. 4-10)
