    One thought on “Ace Dragon Ltd.”

    1. While John is walking down the street one day, he hears a noise and discovers the Ace Dragon LTD After learning what LTD means, the voice he hears tells him that it can make fire come out of its mouth, fly, and spin straw into gold, but before any of that can happen, John has to fight it He meets up with the dragon and they fight John wins, so John and Ace Dragon LTD go flying and skywriting together They get stuck on a golden moon, but luckily Ace is able to spin gold into straw so that they ca [...]

    2. This is called Dragon y Cia in Spanish, which is the version I own and have read to my kids Fun story about John and his new pal, a dragon who lives down in a subway station.

    3. When John heard KLONK coming from a manhole cover with the words ACE DRAGON LTD written on it, he investigated further Under the cover was a dragon named Ace The dragon said he was limited because he could only do some things, not everything The dragon invited John to go flying with him if he could fight him in a battle John and Ace meet in an abandoned field John won two battles in a row so the dragon took him flying The wrote their names in the sky but soon started running out of petrol so the [...]

    4. When John spots an odd looking metal plate in the street, it leads him to a dragon and many adventures The two agree to meet, fight, and then go flying After much skywriting with smoke from Ace, the dragon, the dragon is out of fuel, and they must find an alternative way to get back home Using his problem solving skills, John slices gold from the planet where they have landed, and the dragon spins it into straw which they use to fashion a large bundle to cushion their fall to earth It s all whim [...]

    5. Russell Hoban of Bread and Jam for Frances teams up with Quentin Blake, illustrator extraordinaire, whose work is most associated with Roald Dahl, and the results are wonderful This is the story of a boy and dragon who meet in the Underground and become fast friends The words and drawings work together like a comic than in your average picture book, with some excellent wordless sequences where the illustrations carry the weight of the narrative But the words have their own moments of brilliant [...]

    6. John makes the acquaintance of Ace Dragon Ltd limited and after defeating him in battle 2 out of 3 , is taken for a dragon back ride through the skies, where they use fire to skywrite their names When Ace runs out of juice, however, they find themselves trapped on a golden moon Fortunately, Ace is able to spin gold into straw convenient , so they work together to create a large bale that they use as a crash pad when they plummet back to Earth This totally works if you set aside any physics with [...]

    7. One day John notices a manhole cover that reads Ace Dragon Ltd He stomps on it three times and asks what ltd stands for Eventually, Ace and John agree to meet for a battle since Ace is a dragon and John has a sword They have some fun battling and then do some flying but have a little bit of a hiccup in getting home Together, though, they are able to make it.I was quite surprised to see that this famous author illustrator team had a book that took 25 years to get published in the States The book [...]

    8. I will forever associate Quentin Blake with Roald Dahl, but that s not bad here this English tale of a young boy making friends with a dragon is absurdist and unrealistic in the best Dahl ian way They meet through a manhole cover and the Underground, they do epic battle in an abandoned lot, they fly and sky write their names, run out of petrol, crash land on a moon made of goldyou get the idea Not really for little little kids the reading level is a bit like shorter Dahl books But it s adorable. [...]

    9. This pairing of Hoban and Blake worked out much better, in my opinion, than it did for Rosie s Magic Horse It s silly and strange also, but the story had a much better flow here than it did in Rosie s A young boy, John, stumbles upon what looks like a sewer cap that says Ace Dragon Ltd , and when he steps on it 3 times, he gets to speak to Ace himself They meet up, fight, fly, sky write with fire, land on a golden moon, and finally make it back to Earth John realizes that Ace is not so limited a [...]

    10. Simple, clever story paired with Quentin Blake s perfect illustrations John took the Underground to Dragonham East There he saw a dragon in Wellingtons The ace dragon said, How do you do I m Ace Dragon Ltd John said, How do you do I m John Ace and John found an abandoned lot, and got ready to fight Well done you two

    11. This was cute John meets a dragon who can t do everything, but can fly and spin gold into straw I mostly checked this one out for me, when I saw it in the new books section, but my 6 year old got a kick out of it too though I did have to explain to him a few words like the Underground and Petrol.

    12. Love the imagination in this, and how it celebrates the way kids play But I m not completely sure they ll get the underpinning joke on Ace Dragon s name Ace Dragon Ltd At the end, John says, You know what, Ace Ace said, What John said, You re not so limited.

    13. Of course John found a dragon living under a manhole cover Where else would you find one And for their first meeting A rendezvous at the Dragonham East station of the Underground The dragon wore Wellingtons John had a sword And so it began Totally eccentric and very pleasant
