The yellow dragon has agreed to a truce with the King and his townspeople, as long as he’s fed mountains of sweets. When a baking disaster turns his skin purple, the dragon demands that they either turn his skin back to yellow, or he will take his revenge.
Everyone turns to Hookitty-Tookitty-Tah to solve the problem, but the mischievous wizard has some tricks up his sleeves. First he plans to turn the dragon a few other colors, before finally returning him to his yellow hue. And in the process, the dragon learns some facts about food.
Hookitty-Tookitty-Tah is a cute rhyming story with wonderful illustrations. There is a subtle attempt to convince kids of the joys of healthy eating, as opposed to consuming lots of junk food, but it doesn’t come across too preachy. This is a fun and humorous read.
