I absolutely adored this book when my Kindergarten teacher used to read it to us. For the longest time I could only remember parts of it, though, and not even enough to identify it. One day not long ago I was walking through a Borders that was about to go out of business and I happened to glance down at a table covered in children's books. There sat "My Father's Dragon." The picture on the cover jumped out at me, and I knew at once that I'd found the book that I had been trying to remember for so long.

Upon reading the book as an adult, I obviously don't love it as much as I did when I was a youngster. That said, it surely deserves the 4-star rating - if not for nostalgia alone, then for the feeling of enchantment my five-year-old self felt when reading this tale.
