Before the legendary Arthur became king, he took lessons from a dragon . . . Artos is a lonely child, teased or ignored by the other boys in the castle of Sir Ector. One day, he follows Sir Ector’s runaway hound into a mysterious, dark cave, where he encounters a dragon who offers him the gift of wisdom. Both frightened and intrigued, Artos becomes the dragon’s student and gains what he’s always longed for: the friendship and respect of other boys. Under the guidance of the dragon, Artos’s life begins to take shape in a way he could never have imagined. But has Artos really learned everything the dragon has to teach? And what does the dragon mean when he refers to him as “Artos Pendragon,” or “Arthur son of dragon”? This ebook features a personal history by Jane Yolen including rare images from the author’s personal collection, as well as a note from the author about the making of the book.

One day, a poor flower seller drops his leftover flowers into the sea as a gift for the Dragon King. What does he get in return? A little snot-nosed boy—with the power to grant wishes! Soon the flower seller is rich, but when he forgets the meaning of “thank you,” he loses everything once again. “You just can’t help some humans,” say the snot-nosed little boy and the Dragon King.“The text is nicely repetitive and includes satisfyingly disgusting nose-blowing effects that children will love. MacDonald’s lively retelling of this folktale is bound to fascinate kids; after all, who can resist a tale with a snot-nosed boy?” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review “MacDonald’s version of this Japanese folktale offers minor grossness and big laughs, with a moral tossed in; Yoshikawa’s digitally enhanced watercolors, correspondingly, go for humor over elegance. . . . Perhaps, the tale suggests, even great wealth is not free of annoyances.” —Publishers Weekly “The author’s choice of words, her syntax, and timing give the story an easy, natural flow. . . . The simplicity of both the text and the illustrations makes this an excellent choice for storytimes and sharing one-on-one.” —School Library Journal “Children, predictably, will enjoy the boy’s snuffling of nose and slurping of soup. Parents will like the parable against greed. And despite the tale’s ick factor, Yoshikawa’s drawings are lovely and adorable.” —The New York Times “A sure-fire hit with primary grades, this would be a lighthearted source of discussion of when enough is enough.” —The Horn Book Magazine “There is some real child appeal in the boy’s wish granting, particularly as it involves an elaborate ritual wherein he wipes his snotty nose first on one sleeve, then the other, then blows ‘HNNNK! HNNNK! HNNNK!,’ and those sharing the story aloud will have a particularly good time with this routine.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books “MacDonald’s retelling of this Japanese folktale is lyrical and the illustrations are lush and a feast for the eyes.” —Library Media ConnectionMargaret Read MacDonald loves folktales and travels the world telling wonderful stories and teaching others how to share them. How Many Donkeys? An Arabic Counting Tale won the Best Foreign Children’s Book Award at the 2010 Sharjah International Book Fair. She lives in Washington. Sachiko Yoshikawa moved to the United States from Japan in 1988 to study art. Much of her work has been inspired by living and traveling in the United States and abroad. She has lived in Tokyo, California, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, and currently, in Wisconsin. She has also lived in Uganda, in East Africa, where she had a group show with local artists at the Uganda National Museum. She has illustrated numerous books for young readers, such as Beach Is to Fun (named Best Children’s Book of the Year by the Bank Street College of Education) and What Is Science? (a finalist in the Children’s Science Picture Book category of the 2007 SB&F Prize).

"A Being(s) in Love Story" Arthur MacArthur needs a job, and not just for the money. Before he dropped out of school to support his younger sister, he loved being a research assistant at the university. But working for a dragon, one of the rarest and least understood magical beings, has unforeseen complications. While Arthur may be the only applicant who isn't afraid of Philbert Jones in his dragon form, the instant attraction he feels for his new employer is beyond disconcerting. Bertie is a brilliant historian, but he can't find his own notes without help-his house is a hoard of books and antiques, hence the need for an assistant. Setting the mess to rights is a dream come true for Arthur, who once aspired to be an archivist. But making sense of Bertie's interest in him is another matter. After all, dragons collect treasure, and Arthur is anything but extraordinary.
