Book Review #856
Puff The Magic Dragon by Peter Yarrow and Lenny Lipton, illustrated by Eric Puybaret
Rating: one star (out of four)

This book had such an intriguing cover, so I was kind of excited to read it. But when I read the first couple of pages, I felt my excitement fly away. It was a very simple story - too simple, in my mind. I also felt like the text could have elaborated more and some of the lines were repeated several times. The illustrations were sweet, but because they weren't fully supported by the story, it was a let down. I wouldn't recommend this book.


  1. have you ever heard the song that it's based on?

  2. You might like the book better if you heard the song. It was recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary.
