  3. I don t know, I just didn t quite get all the parts He swallowed the castle to hold the lady , he swallowed the lady to rule the cook , he swallowed the cook to fatten the squire etc Also, in one picture the dragon looks exactly like he s going to poop or at least fart even though he s just going to burp And the knight was the only one who didn t get out in the end

  6. Thanks to this book, my kids have added the word polite to their vocabulary and use it constantly They first thought that word sounded funny After telling them what it meant, the continue to laugh using the word but they use it correctly in a sentence.They rhymes flowed a little easier for me after the second read through the book I enjoyed the pictures and thought the outcome was creative I did not mind reading this book to the kids over ten times in the few weeks we had checked it out from the [...]


  7. Slightly clumsy rhymes in places, however I like the sections that recall the list of everything that the dragon has swallowed could lends itself nicely to recall exercises for children


  8. Hmmmm plump googly eyed this fellow seems harmless enough I m quite fond of the polka dotted neckerchief he s sporting Shall we give him a chance It s not like he can swallow an entire kingdom, right Think again This gorbellied, hook nosed scoundrel is NOT to be trusted Oh, he may look puppy faced, but just like that old, witless woman who swallowed a fly, this cold blooded hornbeast hath no clue about good manners He gorges himself silly bloatage maximus until well you ll have to read the book [...]


  9. I won this book as part of a giveaway and it arrived today so I read it to my daughter immediately as she didn t want to wait until bedtime The first thing that caught my attention was the attention to detail in the illustrations it is a very nice book to look at bright colors and strong print We loved the little rhymes some of the words were a bit advanced for a 3 year old perchance in kids book but I understand it had to rhyme Overall my daughter loved it and understood it If I had any critici [...]


  10. In the same vein as There was an old lady who swallowed this funny picture book written in rhyming text features a very hungry dragon The dragon snatches up a knight, followed by his horse, and then just keeps on swallowing things Who knows what might have happened had he not become too bloated by swallowing a moat One good burp rids him of all that he s consumed, except the knight, which sets up the final lines in the book perfectly This is great fun to read alone or to share with someone else. [...]


  11. Timeless tale of Dragons and Knights and swallowing things Following the same pattern as the classic, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, this dragon swallows one thing after another As the reader is reminded at the end of each stanza, it s not polite But then the dragon does something even impolite he burps Out comes everything except the knight Apparently, he s okay with swallowing a knight julianaleewriter books ali


  12. Cumulative rhymes are not my absolute favorite picture book genre, but I thought this particular book was quite adorable.The bright, colorful illustrations match the cheeky text perfectly, and the rhyme is fractured just the right amount It s still recognizable as the traditional old lady who swallowed some stuff frame, but it s got enough humor to make it seem fresh.This would be a great addition to a fairy tale, dragon, or royal storytime for preschoolers


  13. Klostermann shines in her debut, a brilliant twist on the classic There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly but this time with Knights Squires And Dragons Kids will gobble up this spunky tale of an impolite dragon who eats and eats Coupled with Mantle s vibrant illustrations and dashes of humor the napkin around dragon s neck, his picking his teeth with the knight s sword , this will be a sure fire hit at story time And there s nothing shady or impolite about that.


  14. I absolutely loathe There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly Because ew, flies To this day, I cannot bear listening to Judy Collins because she conjures up memories of her musical rendition of this oft hailed childhood classic That being said, some of the spin off swallow books are humorous and clever This dragon knight one is decent but not a personal favorite Would make for a good read aloud and will likely be enjoyed by far less picky children than I.


  15. This is a delightful new rendition of THERE WAS AN OLD LADY WHO SWALLOWED A FLY This new version is adorable as it goes, There was an old dragon who swallowed the Knight I don t know why he swallowed the knight It s not polite With great vocabulary such as steed, squire, savory, castle, tassel, and moat, this is the perfect book for those obsessed with all things medieval.


  16. Spoiler Alert Be prepared for a LOT of burping noises after sharing this book as a read aloudke your own story puppets from Random House at randomhousekids media


  17. The format of this book is modeled after There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly Rhythmical and repetitive text with humor as well would make this a great lit lunch read aloud for early to mid elementary aged students.
