PreS-Gr 2-Another delightful fantasy from the author/illustrator of the popular "Martha" books. Harry, a friendly looking brown dog clad in jeans and an orange striped shirt, is swept out to sea and shipwrecked on a rocky island. One of the rocks looks different, though. It's an egg, which hatches a baby lizard. No, wait, make that a "bizzard" (when it sprouts wings like a bird). No, wait, he can actually cook the fish he's caught by breathing fire on it. Could he be a dragon? Yes, indeed, and when Harry realizes who he's sharing his island with, he hides in fear and sends the creature away. Soon, second thoughts creep in: "Except for the fact that he was probably going to eat me, that dragon was good company." Meddaugh, who is a master at creating satisfying endings, doesn't disappoint here, offering a rousing conclusion with a sweet little twist. Her economical writing has a natural flow, and the simple pictures expertly convey the comedy, drama, and emotion of this great little story.-Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL (c) Copyright 2010.
