Customer Reviews of Eric Carle's Dragons, Dragons

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful way to introduce children to mythology., in a world where Teletubbies rule and purple dinosaurs cavort under hot studio lights, it is refreshing to find a children's entertainment devoid of pretension, which combines a bold design sense with quotes from genre stalwarts (Anne McCaffrey and John Gardner, among others) to form what amounts to a kid's first mythological primer. It's also a great way for adults to revisit the subject, as it delves not only into classical Greek and Roman lore, but also into the oft-ignored realms of African and Asian mythology.
