The classic fantasy trilogy of Elmer Elevator and the flying baby dragon has delighted children and their parents for generations. Now, on the occasion of their fiftieth anniversary, Random House is proud to bring the three timeless tales together in one beautiful commemorative edition, complete with the original delightful illustrations.

A Newbery Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book, My Father's Dragon is followed by Elmer and the Dragon ("rich, humorous, and thoroughly satisfying"*) and The Dragons of Blueland ("ingenious and plausible, the fantasy well-sustained"*). Each story stands alone, but read in succession, they are an unforgettable experience.*Library Journal, starred review

Ruth Stiles Gannett Kahn (born August 12, 1923) is an American children's writer best known for My Father's Dragon and its two sequels that are sometimes collectively referred to as the My Father's Dragon series.


A Book to Keep Forever


This is such a simply sweet book that will keep children of all ages engaged. It is clever, funny, engaging and full of adventure. The main character is a smart young boy, outwitting the antagonists to save an enslaved baby dragon. The book flows easily and the chapters are not too long to loose younger readers. I read this to my 3, 5 and 6yr olds and they all enjoyed it and could follow the story line. A beautiful tale of friendship, determination and kindness.
