Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great classic! This is such a great story! The illustrations are wonderful and the story is one to read over and over. Both of my kids enjoy it and it's one book that stays on the book shelf continuously. The CD feature is an added bonus as my five year old loves it being played when he's going to bed.

About the Author

In 1959, Peter Yarrow and Lenny Lipton co-created the beloved song "Puff, the Magic Dragon." As a member of the renowned trio Peter, Paul & Mary, Peter Yarrow has earned many gold and platinum awards and numerous Grammys®, as well as an Emmy® nomination for his animated TV specials based on "Puff, the Magic Dragon." Among the many honors bestowed upon him, Yarrow is most proud of the Allard K. Lowenstein Award, which he received in 1982 for advancing the causes of human rights, peace, and freedom. He lives in New York City.

Lenny Lipton is the inventor of the modern 3-D projection system used in cinemas worldwide and the author of four books on motion-picture technology. He received an award from the Smithsonian for his invention.
 
Eric Puybaret graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Puff, the Magic Dragon was his first book, and he has since gone on to illustrate several others, including The Nutcracker for Sterling, and a picture book edition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow with a musical interpretation by Judy Collins. Puybaret lives in Paris, France.
