Whinnie the Lovesick Dragon

Mercer Mayer, Author, Diane Dawson Hearn, Illustrator MacMillan Publishing Company $11.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-02-765180-5
Whinnie the Dragon has fallen in love with Alfred the Knight. But poor Whinnie's love is unrequited. In fact, Alfred goes so far as to whack Whinnie with his sword every chance he gets. With the help of a friendly wizard, whose magic potion comes in the form of a cherry frappe, and a little disciplinary action from Whinnie's Uncle Dragon, there is a happy, surprise ending. The paintings fit the text perfectly. Funny details abound within rich medieval settings; people and animals race out of the colorful, decorative borders, while comical creaturesincluding one who wears a diaper and has a pacifier in his mouthlaze about taking it all in. (5-8)
