Ken Baker, Old MacDonald Had a Dragon (Amazon Children’s Publishing, 2012)

Full disclosure: this book was provided to me free of charge by Amazon Vine.

E-I-E-I-GULP

Spoiler Alert!I picked this one up because both I and the kid love the other Ken Baker book we have, Cow Can’t Sleep. This one is even funnier, though while SPOILER ALERT! the book does have a happy ending, some of the events leading up to it may shock younger children (the dragon eats each animal he comes across and gets progressively fatter and fatter as the book goes on). The teenaged daughter and sister-in-law, on the other hand, find it hysterical. I’d suggest grabbing a copy from the library for buying one for the permanent library, but will follow that up by saying you’ll probably end up buying it anyway. Wonderful. *** ½
