Read in October, 2009

As a children's bookseller I sold hundreds of copies to people who remembered it from their childhood. They came in looking for it; I had never heard of My Father's Dragon before. Picked it up last week while scanning the library shelves for something to entertain Iris (who likes fantasy). For some reason I'd assumed sweet and saccharine--not at all! Begins with a mean mother and moves on to seriously threatening animals and a cruelly enslaved baby dragon. Iris loves this sort of thing, and I enjoyed it too. Both scarier and funnier than I expected. "The cat had told him that tigers are very fond of chewing gum..."
