Description

A NEWBERY HONOR BOOK

When a little boy Elmer strikes
up a friendship with an alley cat, he learns of a baby dragon that is being
forced to serve as a ferry for the selfish animals of Wild Island. Elmer
determines at once to free the dragon, and with a bit of advice from the
savvy cat, he arms himself with chewing gum, lollipops, rubber bands and some
other unlikely items. With these tools and his own sharp wits, Elmer is
prepared to face hungry tigers, cranky crocodiles and other challenges.

Both a Newbery Honor Book and an American Library
Association Notable Book, this charming story has delighted generations of
readers since its original publication in 1948.
