Praise for THERE WAS AN OLD DRAGON WHO SWALLOWED A KNIGHT.
No matter how many swallowed-fly titles you own, this one belongs on your shelf too.
The author has used a broad range of words—savory, shady, fattens, tassel, guzzled, bloat, quote, perchance, amass, and billow. These will add depth to the young listener’s vocabulary.
