Author Bio

RUTH STILES GANNETT wrote My Father's Dragon just a few years after her graduation from Vassar College in 1944. It was an immediate success, becoming a Newbery Honor Book, and was soon followed by two sequels, Elmer and the Dragon and The Dragons of Blueland. All three dragon stories have been continuously in print in the more than 40 years since their publication. The author's other books include Katie and the Sad Noise and The Wonderful House-Boat- Train. She is married to the artist and calligrapher Peter Kahn. They have seven daughters and seven grandchildren.

    I bought this book, and its two companion books, for my second-grade son (who reads books so quickly I can't keep up with his reading!). I usually skim the content before handing books over, but I was so charmed by this story and its illustrations that I ended up reading the entire series.

    A simple, fantastical story about friendship that will delight both parents and children! This would be an excellent read-aloud series.
