Need a picture book to kick-off
your health study on FOODS that are GOOD for you? Oscar
and the Very Hungry Dragon is it!
enormous dragon was hungry!
the dragon became angry because there were no princesses
available to feed him!
people of the little village were frightened! Without a
princess to sacrifice, would the dragon destroy their village?
it was decided that they would give him a child, so they
drew names from the hat. Was your name in it? No, but Oscar's
whose name they drew. Would Oscar go to meet the very hungry
dragon? Would the dragon eat Oscar, or could Oscar outsmart
would YOU outsmart a dragon?
and the Very Hungry Dragon by
Ute Krause is a funny story about what happened to Oscar
in the dragon's lair. The illustrations of the dragon are
uniquely hilarious, and the clever story, somehow set in
modern times (HOW did we know?) will keep you guessing.
Two or more challenging words on each page will stretch
your kids' vocabulary skills. This is a unusual dragon story
that will have a waiting list to read it!
