Horatio Horndragon likes many things about school. He likes dragon practice, eating charcoal sandwiches and Tire Tidbits for lunch, and playing capture-the-princess. But when Horatio doesn't like something he doesn't always listen, and Horatio doesn't like having to memorize his home address and phone number. After all, he is a smart little dragon, and he won't ever get lost.
Or will he?

PreSchool-Grade 1-Horatio Horndragon knows what he likes about school. He likes dragon practice, lunch, and recess. He especially enjoys his lunch of charcoal sandwiches, Tabasco tea, and Tire Tidbits. However, the young dragon does not like to practice writing his name, address, and telephone number. Miss Scaley explains that he needs to know this information in case he is ever lost, but Horatio insists that he won't get lost. "Not now or ever!" While walking home from school, he decides to follow a delivery dragon carrying packages, and, naturally, he loses his way. Officer Flash, a winged creature wearing roller skates, appears, and the two must simply wait until the youngster's parents report him missing. Charming illustrations in pastel colors and with humorous details accompany the text. The last page allows youngsters to practice writing their name, address, and phone number. While the story is predictable and a bit wordy at times, it shows children the importance of memorizing personal information.
