Author Biography

Paul Meisel always loved to draw, but he also liked shooting hoops with his friends and trying to pitch a no-hitter in little league. He has illustrated more than 70 books, some of which he's also written. Paul won a 2012 ALSC Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor for his picture book See Me Run. - (Penguin Putnam)

Booklist Reviews

Three lovable little dragons from the Dutton Easy Readers series that began with Good Night, Good Knight (2000) now appear in a large-format picture book. When a friendly old wizard asks them to watch his cats while he is gone, they readily agree. Later, unable to read his instructions, the preliterate dragons are baffled but still game. They pore over his illustrated message, guess at the words, and use clues from the pictures he has drawn, but they wildly mistake his meanings. In one case, they imagine that a pool of water means "take the cats swimming" rather than "give the cats fresh water." Well suited to reading aloud, the story is written with a keen ear for language and a good understanding of what makes young children laugh. Meisel's ink-and-watercolor illustrations, full of lively details, are as entertaining as the story. Sure to please the not-reading-quite-yet set as well as the many fans of the previous books.
