<p>Fred the dragon has a list of tasks he must complete in order to be a successful dragon-none of which comes naturally. But hes determined to make #5-eat people-work. Before you can say pass the salt hes gobbled up three people even though he doesnt have the stomach for it. Luckily a local shepherd, with the help of a giant and a witch, knows how to cure what ails him and get those pesky people out of his belly. Its happily-ever-after for everyone in ways youd never expect.<br /> <br /> Geisel award-winning author/illustrator Geoffrey Hayes is a stepped reader maestro. The common threads between his wildly popular Uncle Tooth and Otto SIRs and the more recent Benny and Penny series (Toon Books) are clear and constant. The art is adorable, the characters are bursting with personality, and the stories are humorously subversive. From marauding pirates to misbehaving mice to a dragon who swallows people whole (and then continues to communicate with them in his belly!), Geoffrey always hits that sweet spot for the stepped reader audience-easy to decode, illustrative tales that tickle the funnybone.</p> <br /> <br /> <br /> <i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i
