Drac and the Gremlin by Allan Baillie
This beautifully illustrated book by Allan Baillie, is a celebration of imaginative play. It melds together reality and fantasy. Drac (the girl) sets about to subdue the Gremlin of the Groaning Grotto (her younger brother). She uses her ultra-laser beam (a wrapping paper-covered kitchen paper roll and attempts to rescue the White Wizard(a butterfly) from General Min and her Hissing Horde (the cat and her kittens.) This book would be a useful medium in the study of alliteration. There are many book by Allan Baillie for all reading levels in the Little Library of Rescued books.
