Max’s Dragon Shirt by Rosemary Wells

Max’s Dragon Shirt by Rosemary Wells. Puffin 1991.

I had a horrid time finding any Wells book I hadn’t already read 100+ times. Fish LOVED Yoko and the various Max and Ruby books. I’d have to say Yoko is probably the loveliest of the Wells books with it’s gentle rhythm and touching relationships. So much is communicated and it’s a pleasure to read.

The Dragon Shirt is funny and just a little silly. I love how Wells takes the child’s world seriously, smilingly, and employs a tender, gentle tone. Her books are so ... snuggly! Holly Hobbie in her Toot & Puddle books does the same.
