ERIC CARLE'S DRAGONS DRAGONS by Laura Whipple

ERIC CARLE'S DRAGONS DRAGONS

and Other Creatures That Never Were

By Laura Whipple (Editor) , Eric Carle (Illustrator)

Age Range: 3 & up

Pub Date: Sept. 18th, 1991
ISBN: 0-399-22105-0
Publisher: Philomel

A second well-chosen, gorgeously illustrated collection of poetry in the style of Animals Animals (1989). Not only dragons but a worldwide collection of fabulous beasts--yeti, Quetzalcoatl, okolo, Pan, kracken, and many more--appear in poems that range a bit in quality as well as origin. The interest level is consistently high--especially when coupled with Carle's flamboyant art. Whipple concludes gracefully with the closing speech from A Midsummer Night's Dream, and also contributes a glossary with its own intelligent introduction. Index. (Poetry/Picture book. 3+)
