About this title

Synopsis:

Playing in the backyard, a young girl pretending to be Drac, the Warrior Queen, unites with a young boy pretending to be the Gremlin, to save the White Wizard's planet from the Terrible Tongued Dragon

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-- A young girl and a younger boy play at fantasy amidst the "jungles" (garden), "bubbling seas" (lawn sprinkler), and "black volcano" (smoking barbecue) of their Australian backyard. Enemies at first, the girl ("Drac, the Warrior Queen") and the boy ("the Gremlin of the Groaning Grotto") unite to rescue the "White Wizard," repelling both "General Min" (their cat) and the "Terrible Tongued Dragon" (their dog). At this point, their mother interrupts their play to award them the "Twin Crimson Cones of Tirnol Two" (ice cream cones) for their valor--and this, more than anything, illustrates all that is wrong with this book. It is all too clearly an adult rendering of a child's fantasy. The lavish illustrations leave nothing to the imagination, exposing the fantasy at every turn, while the text seems almost voyeuristic in its intrusion into the private world of the child's imagination. Ironically, this betrays the free spirit that it tries, but fails, to celebrate. --Marcia Hupp, Mamaroneck Public Library, NY
