This was a cute read my kids enjoyed when they were younger.
Do you remember brave Belinda and her "realio, trulio, little pet dragon"? This Ogden Nash classic has been a favorite of children for more than 60 years and until recently was unavailable in a picture-book version. Artist Lynn Munsinger has rejuvenated the poem with her chuckle-inducing illustrations of no-nonsense Belinda and the cowardly green and purple dragon Custard. Belinda was a brave role model for young girls back when females weren't encouraged to stand up for themselves, and Custard's hidden reserve of strength has no doubt inspired children for several generations. Hooked on Custard? The next adventure unfolds in Custard the Dragon and the Wicked Knight, which followed this popular picture book. (Ages 3 to 8)
Wonderful fun, with a lot of joy in the language and illustrations. Plus, my little girl loves me to read the story of the realio, trulio, little pet dragon.
Do your kids a favor and get a copy for them today.
Absolutely adorable story done in rhyme. My kids loved it!! We will be looking for more books by this author! :)
Illustrations are really cute. The book was ok, not what I expected.
