Three Tales of My Father's Dragon 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.
