Hoban Ace DragonRussell Hoban, the author, was born in Pennsylvania but lived most of his life in London. The magical story about a little boy and a dragon includes a few words that children from the U.S. may not know, such as Wellingtons which are boots and petrol which means gasoline. Children who have a great imagination will love this story. The boy and the dragon fight but then become friends and go on an adventure together. The end papers tie in with the story as they depict the dragon’s sky writing with fire.
