    1. In this sequel to the original The Tale of Custard the Dragon, poor, timid Custard becomes involved in yet another adventure where he must overcome his natural timidity. This actually makes him a good role model for children. Entertaining! Recommended.

    2. A beautiful and fun rhyming story. Loved the art and the colours. The rhythm really moved me, and I liked Custard's journey into finding his courage. The last line was also pretty funny, especially in its maturity beyond this child's tale.

    3. This sequel to The Tale of Custard the Dragon charms the reader with more of Nash's matchless rhyme. This is another tale of genuine courage expressed in a time of need by a habitually mild, timid "little pet dragon." In this story, Belinda is kidnapped by an evil knight, and it is up to Custard to rescue her from his evil lair.As in the first book, Nash's ironic, tongue-in-cheek hilarity is complemented by Munsinger's whimsical artwork. If told with a serious way, the story might be frightening [...]

    4. I really, really enjoyed this story, and out of the 2 others that I read this weekend -- not inlcuding Where the Wild Things Are -- I would be much more likely to use this in a classroom. Especially in exploring rhymes. I love children stories that rhyme, and not only does it rhyme but it has a dragon in it too which makes it that much better. I also enjoy the reversal of roles of the knight and the dragon. Which makes this story that much cuter. The illustrations where colorful and interesting [...]

    5. Custard the cowardly dragon comes to Belinda's aid when the dastardly knight she was singing about comes to life and kidnaps her! When Ink the cat, Mustard the dog and Blink the mouse are all too afraid to help her, Custard comes to her rescue. He flies to the knights dilapidated castle, burns it down and when he is presented with a sword as a weapon, breaks it into lots of pieces. He rescues Belinda and returns her to the safety of her home. And to the shame of the other members of the house!
