Publisher's Summary

The classic fantasy trilogy of Elmer Elevator and the flying baby dragon has delighted children and their parents for generations. Now, on the occasion of their 50th anniversary, Random House is proud to bring the three timeless tales together in one commemorative edition.

A Newbery Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book, My Father's Dragon is followed by Elmer and the Dragon ("rich, humorous, and thoroughly satisfying") and The Dragons of Blueland ["ingenious and plausible, the fantasy well-sustained" (Library Journal, starred review)]. Each story stands alone, but listened to in succession they are an unforgettable experience.

Delightful stories

My children have listened to this over and over again from when they were 3 or 4 years old, and are still delighted by it. It is a magical story and a great first chapter book!

Great story for long drives and little ones

My two boys love this story. They listen any time we’re in the car for more than 30 minutes, and this story keeps them engaged and quiet. I’m a big fan :)

Five year old loved it

As my five year old is starting to branch out from picture book read alouds to chapter books, I asked several college friends about their favorite books from childhood. This one was recommended by several people and I can see why. It's a timeless adventure story for kids with just the right amount of danger for young kids, engrossing but never frightening. My five year old son loved it. Normally a very high energy kid, he would beg me to turn it on and then sit and listen while peacefully building with Legos or drawing. He has asked to listened to it falling asleep at night and on road trips. We have probably listened to this one at least 20 times since I purchased it. Definitely a worthwhile purchase!

Totally awesome and the best according to a 6 and 9 year old

My son has loved this series since he was four. Now he (9) and his little sister (6) listen to it on Audible and enjoy the ingenuity and humor. I asked them for their reviews and they had nothing but superlatives. Totally awesome. The best. Absolutely hilarious. They listen to a wide variety of good quality books and this continues to be a favorite

Not Compelling

It is an ok children's story but I was rarely excited to listen to what happened next.
