Kort biografi
Ruth Stiles Gannett attended City and Country School in New York City, then graduated from Vassar College with a bachelor's degree in chemistry in 1944. In 1948, she published her first novel for children, My Father's Dragon, which won the Newbery Medal. The book was illustrated by her stepmother, Ruth Chrisman Gannett, and the typography was designed by her husband Peter Kahn, with whom she had seven children. She wrote two more novels in the series, Elmer and the Dragon (1950) and The Dragons of Blueland (1951), among other books.

Loved this story when I was a kid. Great read-aloud or junior reader book.

With writing is so elegant and illustrations so charming and distinctive, how could I not love this story? True, there's not a whole lot to it--boy meets talking cat, boy runs away from home, boy outsmarts wild animals, boy rescues dragon--but it's a perfect read-aloud for 4- to 7-year-olds. My favorite part is when Elmer brushes the rhino's teeth.

I also really enjoy the fact that even though Elmer is just a little boy to us, he's also the narrator's father, which makes the telling of the story more affectionate than the usual third-person narration.… (mer)
