Booklist Reviews

When the dragon family learns of an upcoming flying contest, it is eager to compete. Because little Drago can't fly yet, he enlists the help of a bird to give him lessons in secret. Each night, he sneaks away to practice, building his strength and practicing his figure-eight moves. Finally, contest day arrives. After watching his family members lose one competition after another, Drago astonishes them by rising into the sky and winning a prize for his specialty: the figure eight. The story unfolds in speech and thought balloons as well as text boxes. Created with pencil, ink, and Photoshop, the cartoon-style illustrations are at their dramatic best when unencumbered by too much setting and detail. The real fantasy here isn't the existence of dragons or flying contests; it's the idea that the novice beats the experts. That's a powerful notion for many young children, who will get involved in the story and savor the happy ending. Kroll, a prolific author of 96 books, died on March 15, 2011.
