Storybook fancy meets real experience in a young boy's mischief.

Once upon a time there was a room full of treasure guarded by ferocious dragons... or so a young boy pretends as his parents prepare his birthday party. The "treasure" is really a table full of party goodies, and the "dragons" are the family's cat and dog. When the boy dares to sneak a treat, he awakens the beasts and faces exile... to the backyard.

Undeterred, our little hero outwits the guardian dragons with a little trickery, the weaving of a spell, and a whole lot of courage. But when his parents catch the conquering crusader covered in the sweet spoils of icing, it looks like The End... or at least a time-out in his bedroom. Fortunately, the party does go on, and everyone lives happily ever after -- as it should be in all good fairy tales.

From Booklist:

PreS-K. "Once upon a time" begins this story of a brave hero who outwits dragons to gain access to a roomful of treasure. Though the text appears to take place in medieval times, the pictures tell quite a different story. The setting is present-day, the hero is a little boy in T-shirt and overalls, the dragons are the household dog and cat, and the treasure room is the kitchen, its table laden with birthday treats. With a short text and a series of large-scale oil paintings in sunny colors, this simple picture book offers an imaginative experience for young children enchanted by fairy tales. Just for fun, pair this with Steven Krenksy's We Just Moved! (1998), which takes the opposite approach: illustrations set in medieval times accompany an apparently modern-day text about moving day.
