About the book
In My Father’s Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett, we meet Elmer, a little boy who wants to fly. Fate is on his side: he meets a cat who has information about a mysterious island where a baby dragon is being held captive, and Elmer duly sets off to rescue the dragon and who knows? Perhaps there’s a chance that he will fly on its back, too.
