My Father's Dragon


We are pleased to announce that My Father's Dragon has been added to our collection of Children's Stories!

Relive the magic of Elmer Elevator's adventures as he runs away to Wild Island to rescue a baby dragon who needs his help.

The endearing children's story is made extra special because of its beautiful illustrations. Hopefully, a thoughtful grown-up read this book to you when you were a child, and now it's your turn to share it with your own children!

My Father's Dragon is the first book of Ruth Stiles Gannett's "Elmer and the Dragon" trilogy. We'll be sure to post Gannett's other two books -- Elmer and the Dragon, and The Dragons of Blueland -- just as soon as they enter the public domain.

My Father's Dragon was published in 1948, and won prizes as a Newbery Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book.
