Baumgart, Klaus. Where Are You, Little Green Dragon? (published in 1993 by Hyperion Press Juvenile). Originally written in German, Klaus Baumgart’s “Little Green Dragon” books were translated into English. The Little Green Dragon is Anna’s favorite storybook character. In the first book, Anna and the Little Green Dragon (1992) which became a Public Television Storytime Book, breakfast starts out as usual for Anna, with the same cereal in the same bowl and the same mug for cocoa, but then the cornflakes box starts shaking and out pops the Little Green Dragon. In the next book, The Little Green Dragon Steps Out (1992), the fun-loving Little Green Dragon pops out of the pages of Anna’s bedtime book as she lies fast asleep—taking a ride on her roller skates, dressing up in her doll’s clothes, and generally making a mess of things. In Where Are You, Little Green Dragon?, which our older son Mark read in second grade, Anna’s Little Green Dragon has a new adventure inside the refrigerator. These are extremely cute little books, but not to be confused with the Adventures of the Little Green Dragon by Mari Privette Ulmer.
