Format: Paperback
I read this book with my three year old son in a bookstore the other day and we both enjoyed it. I am surprised to see Amazon Canada does not currently list the reprint edition.

I have given the book four stars because I think it's worth some attention, and as half stars do not exist in this system. I will not say whether I'd have given it a half star more or less. The story is good, though not extraordinary. What is of interest is the author's unusual choice of meter--and her successful deployment of it, along with some clever rhymes and turns of phrase, on a few pages. In short, this book is not perfect, but it offers something that more consistent books often do not: some true verbal exploration. Fitch is referred to as "the Canadian Dr. Seuss" in one of the blurbs, which to me can only mean (as that adjective often does) she is one among the weaker cousins of the North. This description gets much wrong. The work is worth having and reading.

This book has been my son's favorite since he was two. It's use of the English language is fun. The words just roll off of your tongue. The names of the dragons are simply wonderful -- Beelzebub, Ching-Chung, Jebediah Jones, Pythagorus.

I would recommend this book for bright pre-schoolers and for all kids who demand more than picture books! It's a great read for child and for parent.

It's definitely worth the wait (out of print)!

Sleeping Dragons All Around is a delightful, rhyming tongue-twister that absoutely enchanted my young children! It is humorously yet beautifully illustrated which enhances its attractiveness to children of all ages. It also helped my 2 year old son to overcome nighttime fears of the dark and of monsters. I highly recommend it.

This book is fun and enjoyed by the kids. The cover we got is better than the one shown here. It has dragons. Overall if kids/adults love dragons them may love this book. We do.
