Danny (the only dragon at school) doesn't do his report on the ocean quite the way the teacher intended so he has to redo it. He goes to the Saragaso Sea with his best friend Wendell (an iguana) to visit his cousin the sea serpent. The boys have an amazing adventure. Danny wants to see, meet and go every where unlike Wendell who gets a little bit nervous. There are illustrations and comic panels interspersed through the text. ( )

I bought this because I like Ursula Vernon's drawing style and thought this might be fun to have in our class library for my ESL students. While the drewings did not disappoint I'm not sure that my ESL students will understand the language well enough for them to be Finisheding this book, and the ones who do might find this a bit too juvenile. The ones old enough to have past the mortal coolness threshold would benefit from trickier stuff, so I am not sure what to do with this apart from giving it to my wife, who adores all dragons. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803733631, Hardcover)

It?s not easy for Danny Dragonbreath to be the sole mythical creature in a school for reptiles and amphibians?especially because he can?t breathe fire like other dragons (as the school bully loves to remind him). But having a unique family comes in handy sometimes, like when his sea-serpent cousin takes Danny and his best iguana friend on a mindboggling underwater tour, complete with vomiting sea cucumbers and giant squid. It sure beats reading the encyclopedia to research his ocean report . . .

Using a hybrid of comic-book panels and text, Ursula Vernon introduces an irresistible set of characters with a penchant for getting themselves into sticky situations. It?s perfect for both the classroom and the Wimpy Kid set.

(see all 3 descriptions)

Danny Dragonbreath and his friend Wendell get an up-close underwater tour of the Sargasso Sea from Danny's sea-serpent cousin, encountering giant squid and mako sharks--and learn about standing up to bullies in the process.
