Prelutsky, a master of rhyme, rhythm, and word play, is in top form in this delightful collection. One doesn't have to be a dragon-lover to enjoy it, just kid enough to enjoy tales of dragons in closets, in bathtubs, and on leashes. Prelutsky is a pro whether he's reciting or singing his poems; in this production he does both with verve. He recites on one side of the tape and on the other he sings to the accompaniment of a bluegrass band. Although his poetry doesn't gain much from being sung, it's interesting to contrast the two presentations. P.B.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 95]
