Thank you for placing this book here! Taka Chan and I was a favorite childhood book of mine. Now that I have my own 3 year old son I’ve been looking for a reasonable priced copy with no luck. Now we can enjoy the book online.
I too remember this book, and it was one of my favorite although be it almost 30 years ago. For years I have been looking for this book, but could never remember the title. I could remember the girl and the dragon, but somehow forgot the dog. Once I found the book title, and then found this, I was able to put it all together. I have also found out that it is going to be reprinted, and released in March 2012 (and at a reasonable price — check Amazon).
