Ruth Stiles Gannett Kahn (born August 12, 1923) is an American children's writer best known for My Father's Dragon and its two sometimes called the My Father's Dragon or the Elmer and the Dragons series or trilogy. Gannett graduated from City and Country School in Greenwich Village, New York City, in the class of 1937. There, she recalled in 2012, "she benefited from being 'allowed and encouraged to write for fun' at certain times of the day".

School & Library Binding: 320 pages. A vibrant and compellingly original vision of flaming dragons rising in the skies to combat an ancient foe that returns to menace their home. Dragonflight has justly remained among the most cherished of SciFi & Fantasy classics because it deftly blends both genres, and because it introduced our world to McCaffrey's captivating world of Pern.

7. The Dragons of Blueland. The dragon woke up with a start, and then smiled at the friendly cows. Why, that's my whole family-my six sisters, seven brothers and my dear gigantic mother and father. I'm the only one left to save them

7. 8. To Spiky Mountain Ridge. I'm a baby dragon," he explained, "and I'm on my way home to the great high mountains of Blueland. But what are you doing in our culvert?" asked a cow. "I'm hiding. I'm the only one left to save them. But why didn't they fly away?"

School & Library Binding: 48 pages. We started with Inga Moore's beautifully illustrated version of The Reluctant Dragon, discovered at the library, but it turned out to be abridged (which does have its advantages for younger readers. This is the real thing, with the full original text. I had to walk my then 5yo son through it the first time, but he has taken it off and read it by himself many times since. The classic fantasy trilogy of Elmer Elevator and the flying baby dragon has delighted children and their parents for generations. A Newbery Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book, My Father's Dragon is followed by Elmer and the Dragon ("rich, humorous, and thoroughly satisfying") and The Dragons of Blueland ("ingenious and plausible, the fantasy well-sustained"). Each story stands alone, but read in succession, they are an unforgettable experience.

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Elmer must come once again to the aid of his flying baby dragon when men discover its retreat and begin to hunt it

I bought this for my 7-year-old who had already read the first two books in the trilogy ("My Father's Dragon" and "Elmer and the Dragon"). She read this straight through and finished it in one afternoon. So I'm assuming it was good!

I was browsing at a bookstore and was randomly drawn by the artwork on the cover of the first book in this series "My Fathers Dragon". I know, the old saying "never judge a book by it's cover" is a good edict to hold to, so I read both the back and inside cover to find that it was first published the late 1940's. On a whim I decided to buy it for my daughter who in turn loved it so much that she woke up early the next morning to read before school, which was rare and exciting all at once. Even for an adult, it seems like such a great idea to imagine packing a backpack with traveling "essentials" such as pink bubble gum and rubber bands. The main character Elmer falls into many traps that he creatively works through including tricking a lion by brushing his hair, befriending a dragon, and so on. As a parent what I love best is that all of these books evolve around mishaps that end with good clean humor not unecessary modern-day-drama or blood-guts-and-gore! The next obvious step was to purchase the remaining two books (this being the last in the series)and my daughter has loved them so much that she took them all to school to share in class and they still haven't come back. Unlike most series books that seem to get boring as they go along, this trio has held our attention all the way through! A 'must have' for any 7 or 8 (or 32+) year old readers out there.

Excellent book. We had already read the first two books in this series and ordered this to finish the story. My son, 6, and my daughter, 3, both loved this story. A classic! An adventure, dragons, flying through the air, and a problem to solve. And wonderful book; all the adventure a child wants with nothing inappropriate. Also, the book arrived quickly, and in perfect condition.

Buy this for you kids, all three of them.
Great book for getting kids into reading full pages without pictures. My kid is in 1st grade and has read the first 2 now he's working on the 3rd.
I loved these books when I was young as well

Both my girls loved this series. There are three books, two of which were given to my older daughter (9 at the time I think) and she plowed through them. She is 12 now and says they were one of her favorite books. Her younger sister, age 9 recently read the first two and loved them and I bought this book The Dragons of Blueland and they both quickly loved it. They are very creative stories!

Received the first of this 3 part series last year. I read it many times to my son who was age 5 1/2.
I had no clue there were other stories in the series, when I found out I got them both.
We like that the story continued and more adventure awaied Elmer and the Dragon Boris.Now my 6 1/2 year old can read them to me. It is awesome and just one of the most fun things to do. I get a kick out of him reading to me!
