KIRKUS REVIEW

Anna is eating in an orderly manner until a rambunctious dragon bursts from the cereal box and begins to romp about the breakfast table, squishing through the butter, juggling a soft-boiled egg, and challenging Anna to blow cocoa back at him; Anna complies just as her horrified mother walks in. This German import has not only a cute little dragon, but the perennial appeal of someone else making a forbidden mess. The best moment, though, is the surprise finish--when the mischief-maker's polite but enormous parent arrives, looking for her son like any other neighbor. Baumgart's watercolor illustrations arc lively, funny, and unclichÉd. Good, light fun.
