A Poor Excuse for a Dragon
( by Geoffrey Hayes, Random House $12.99 Score: )

As Dragons go, this has got to be the unscarriest one ever. Written for beginning readers, this silly story features a young Dragon who goes out into the world with a list of things to do that turns out to be all wrong. In the process he meets and eats the very people who will end up saving him. For that in-between reader who is not quite ready for chapter books, but is beyond one liners, this is repetitious enough to work--with a little help from an older listener. Grade two.
