In 1959, Peter Yarrow and Lenny Lipton co-created the beloved song “Puff, the Magic Dragon.” As a member of the renowned trio Peter, Paul & Mary, Peter Yarrow has earned many gold and platinum awards and numerous Grammys®, as well as an Emmy® nomination for his animated TV specials based on “Puff, the Magic Dragon.” Among the many honors bestowed upon him, Yarrow is most proud of the Allard K. Lowenstein Award, which he received in 1982 for advancing the causes of human rights, peace, and freedom. He lives in New York City.
Eric Puybaret graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Puff, the Magic Dragon was his first book, and he has since gone on to illustrate several others, including The Nutcracker for Sterling, and a picture book edition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow with a musical interpretation by Judy Collins. Puybaret lives in Paris, France.
I remember singing the “Puff the Magic Dragon” song when I was a child but I really had no idea that it was a book too! After reading the book, I also learned that there are more words to the song than “Puff the Magic Dragon lived by the sea”! I was so excited to read this book to my kiddos and find out the whole story about Puff! This board book was just the right size for my 5-year-old and had beautiful illustrations! Even my kids were commenting on the pictures! I, of course, had to sing along while I was reading to my daughter and by the third chorus, she was singing along with me! Puff the Magic Dragon was a super cute book with great words/lyrics and I loved the illustrations! It would also make a nice Christmas gift for any child!
The “Puff the Magic Dragon” board book can be purchased on the Sterling Books website for $7.95. It is perfect for ages 3+ and is 24 pages long.
