The Dragon Machine (SOLD)

NEW Paperback Picture Book & CD Set : The Dragon Machine by Helen Ward
Only lonely George notices the dragons large and small, hanging from telephone lines, peeking from storm drains and pocketbooks. Worse yet, once he feeds them, they become real nuisances, following him everywhere: "Something had to be done." With information gleaned from The Encyclopedia of Dragons, he learns where they belong, builds a complex flying machine, and leads them back to their wilderness home.
Using diffuse colors and stippled textures reminiscent of Peter Sis' art, Anderson creates a diaphanous green-and-golden world inhabited by small George; smiling, tubby, bat-winged dragons; and a sprinkling of adults who are generally shown only from waist down. When George's flyer crashes in the dragons' land, his newly attentive parents rescue him, and then present him with a "dog," whose spiked tail only George seems to see. George's feelings of isolation are strongly captured in the art, and the book's typeface and page design give this slightly tongue-in-cheek escapade an appealingly elegant look
