The tale of Dragon and his fat cat begins with a humble dragon sitting in his living room on a snowy January night. All is peaceful until Dragon hears a "meow" coming from outside his front door. After the cat refuses to come in from the cold Dragon grabs it and places it next to the fire. The story continues with Dragon trying to make living arrangements for the cat in his house but he quickly learns that taking care of a pet is no easy work. The fat cat is constantly making messes in Dragon's house until finally the "mail-mouse" suggests a trip to the pet store. Once there Dragon is helped by a friendly pig who gets him everything the cat will need. Once Dragon gets home and sets up the new bed, litter box, and toys he realizes he has left the cat at the pet store. Dragon eventually finds the cat and its new litter of kittens. Of course Dragon is more then happy to keep them as his own.

I believe this is an excellent read for children of primary age. The dragon shows throughout the course of the story how while having a pet is a great experience it is also hard work and a large responsibility. I would recommend this tale to any parent whose thinking of getting their child a new pet. It could be a great way to show them how to be an excellent owner.
