Jack Kirby and the X-man
This story examines the world of children's play.

The words explain the fantasy world the children are inhabiting - subduing the Gremlin of the Groaning Grotto (her little brother) with her ultra-laser beam (a wrapping-paper covered paper-towel roll), before attempting a rescue of the White Wizard (a butterfly) from General Min and her Hissing Horde (the cat Minnie and her kittens) (I won't give away the ending...) The illustrations show what's physically occuring in the backyard.

Gorgeous. A wonderful play of words and pictures.

Drac and the Gremlin has been beautifully illustrated in pastels by Jane Tanner. Descriptive words paint a very imaginative picture, too.

I have always loved this book. It is beautifully illustrated! I wish that today's children had the opportunity for such great imaginative play. I think that technology robs them of that opportunity. For that reason, I especially appreciate Drac and the Gremlin!!!

A 1001 CBYMRBYGU. A girl and boy spend their day with the mildest of props and the wildest of imaginations in a fun world, fighting dragons, racing on jetbikes, flying on spacecraft. Wonderful!
A celebration of imaginative play.
