Read full description of the books The Dragons of Blueland:The Dragons of Blueland is the third book in the My Father's Dragon trilogy. The first book I read when I was a child, and I much cherished the copy I had of it. I can't count how many times I read it, but it was a constant companion as I was growing up and probably is still among my possessions somewhere. The book is a great tool for the imagination, and as I happily found out today the remaining two books in the trilogy are all as equally wonderful.
This book follows in the footsteps of Elmer and the Dragon with the dragon endeavoring to return to his homeland of Blueland. He arrives home, but much to his dismay, finds humans have invaded the Spiky Mountains and trapped his family within a cave! He rushes back to Elmer for help, and together they devise a plan to hopefully free the dragon's family before it's too late and they're shipped off to zoos and circuses.
The brilliant illustrations continue to titillate the imagination, and the dragon's mad flight is a delight to read. The dragon's family, while figuring little in the book, is likewise wonderful and the illustrations were enough to make me laugh. I loved the wholesomeness of the book, the charming character of the old alley cat, and just how sweetly it all came together. There's something wonderful in these books and the innocence they hold and it's truly no wonder to me at all that the trilogy itself is considered a classic.
