My Father's Dragon

By Ruth Stiles Gannett (11)

Ruth Stiles Gannet’s dearly beloved My Father’s Dragon has been enchanting readers since its publication in 1948, and has remained a timeless children’s classic. A tale regarding the narrator’s father, who is sweetly named Elmer Elevator, the story is catapulted with Elmer’s burgeoning friendship with an alley cat. The elderly cat tells the young boy about Wild Island, a mystical island that is nearly halved by a divisive river. The island’s inhabitants find it tiresome to repeatedly go the long way round to cross to the other side of the island, and as such, have made a baby dragon their slave, forcing the dragon to fly loads to and from the opposing riverbanks. Horrified by the tale, and longing for a way “to fly just anywhere you might think of”, Elmer decides to venture to the far away island, and save the dragon from its plight. Awash in detailed black and white drawings, Gannett has composed a tale that is vivid and engaging, yet simple enough to be a student’s first chapter book. My Father’s Dragon, with its ingenious and charming hero, is sure to spark a love of reading in young children, who will be delighted to find Gannett wrote two sequels, Elmer and the Dragon and The Dragons of Blueland.
