MONDAY, December 26th at 7pm: "My Father's Dragon"
A favorite of young readers since the 1940s and a Newbery honor book--Author Ruth Stiles Gannett's adventure captures the nonsensical logic of childhood in an amusingly deadpan fashion. The story begins when Elmer Elevator (the narrator's father as a boy) runs away with an old alley cat to rescue a flying baby dragon being exploited on a faraway island. With the help of two dozen pink lollipops, rubber bands, chewing gum, and a fine-toothed comb, Elmer disarms the fiercest of beasts on Wild Island.
