Take Care, Good Knight - By Shelley Moore Thomas
A humorous story about a wizard who leaves three little dragons with the responsibility of watching his cats while he is away. The narrative shows what can happen when someone can only "read" pictures and not the actual words! This book is also good for teaching young children that sometimes two words can sound exactly the same, but have different spellings and different meanings. One line of the story that I did not care for, says that the cats "cussed and fussed and hissed". The cartoon illustrations are very adorable and fun.
