Oscar and the Very Hungry Dragon
by Ute Krause
Kids Wings Top Flight Book for 2012-2013
Mockingbird Award List

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!

The enormous dragon was hungry!

Then, the dragon became angry because there were no princesses available to feed him!

The people of the little village were frightened! Without a princess to sacrifice, would the dragon destroy their village?

Finally, 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 was.

Guess whose name they drew. Would Oscar go to meet the very hungry dragon? Would the dragon eat Oscar, or could Oscar outsmart him?

How would YOU outsmart a dragon?

Oscar 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!
