Preview: Hear it

Once They All Believed In DragonsOnce they all believed in dragonsWhen the world was fresh and young,We were woven into legends,Tales were told and songs were sung,We were treated with obeisance,We were honored, we were feared, Then one day they stopped believingOn that day, we disappeared.Now they say our time is over,Now they say weve lived our last,Now were treated with derisionWhere we once ruled unsurpassed.We must make them all remember,In some way we must revealThat our spirit lives foreverWe are dragons! We are real! An excellent collection....Prelutsky and Sis...bring to life so many sorts of dragons: the large, the small, the ferocious, the technological, the gentle, the ominous, and the disconsolate. Theres a just right quality to the verse that makes it a pleasure to read the words aloud. Their sounds fit together with seamless craftsmanship and their sense rewards listeners with humor, imagination, and occasional poignancy....Because it appeals on so many levels, this is one poetry book that wont siton the shelf for long.Booklist.
