What a sweet, fun and heartwarming story of friendship, courage and creativity. Makes me want a dragon friend! ( )

Loved the fact that several of the characters were "cast" against stereotypes (peaceful dragons, brave rabbits, etc.)Overall, this was a fun, light-hearted book that my kids and I had a lot of fun with. Definitely worth checking out if you like animal fantasies. ( )

A charming homage to Kenneth Grahame's "The Reluctant Dragon" is engagingly written and illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi, and if young readers are led to Grahame's classic tale, more's the better!

Young Kenny's family plays host to a dragon named Grahame, who'd rather read, play chess, and eat creme brulee than have a go-round with any old knight, but that's just what is going to have to happen if Kenny can't figure out a way to avert the crisis. Chancing his friendship with bookseller George, who's been called out of retirement as a dragonslayer by the king himself, Kenny sorts out a clever plan to satisfy the townspeople and the king.

Cute, cute, cute! ( )
