I know every word of this book thanks to my twin boys. Every. Word. And you can watch it on Netflix or prime.

I'm just starting to buy books for my twin grands. Is this a good price for a board book?

Wonderful book and well worth buying. If you like it, also get The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child. Ridiculously cute and also animated versions available with great voice talent

My kids love this book. I'd buy it if I didn't already own it.

Yes - good price. Also look for the Owl and catcat illustrated by Jan Brett

A couple of the reviews mention it being thoroughly "Americanized," breaking rhymes etc. Is it that bad? All my in-laws are in the UK so we've read it while visiting cousins. Is it worth the wait to get a British copy?

I was curious about the review mentioning the broken ryhmes because I don't notice that at all in the version I have. I thought it was so odd - there seems to be maybe even 3 versions of this. From an Amazon review, there's 2 versions of a few of the passages below. I added what's in my book (from memory, because my 20 month old LOVES this book lol), in red below that. I can't seem to tell which version the Amazon listing is actually for, though.


-"I am a dragon, as mean as can be,
And you, witch, look like
a good supper to me!"
-"I am a dragon, as mean as can be,
And I'm planning to have WITCH
AND CHIPS for my tea!"
I am a dragon, as mean as can be, and witch with french fries tastes delicious to me

-The dragon drew nearer and
started to drool.
He said, "I won't let you go-
do you think I'm a fool?"
-The dragon drew nearer and,
licking his lips,
Said, "Maybe this once
I'll have witch without chips."
The dragon drew near with a glint in his eyes, and said just this once, I'll have witch without fries
