This picture book starts with a note: 'Don't forget to wake the dragons before school. Love Mom'.

A young knight and his dog must prepare the dragons for their day. As readers will see, that job is much like getting children ready for their day. Breakfast first, then it's time to brush their teeth. 'Fangs above, fangs beneath.' Almost ready now. 'Wipe their faces and running noses and get into outdoor clothes-es.' When they're out of the house, they're free to fly.

Study the clever, brightly colored illustrations so you don't miss anything. Yolen is often called the Hans Christian Anderson of America. Her Waking Dragons is an engaging book that's fun to read.
