Kathryn (Nine Pages)
Originally published on my blog, Nine Pages .

This one I found in an antiques mall, drawn to it by the dragon on the cover. Waldo is a careless dragon who doesn’t look where he’s going, and because the characters warn the dragon that that heedlessness will get him into trouble, I’m tempted to think of this as a pedagogic story. He runs into a knight—literally—and the knight decides that he must slay the dragon. The knight chases him, eventually catching hold of the dragon’s neck after the dragon
Such a favorite from my long ago days of childhood. I kept my beat up old book for decades and finally had kids of my own to share it with. They enjoyed the humor and gentle story just as much as I did. It also has a touch of the metafiction on the last page when the dragon jumps so high as to jump off the page and out to...where? Great stimulation for the child's imagination.
