21. Kenny & the Dragon

Written and Illustrated By: Tony DiTerlizzi

Level: J

 

Kenny is a rabbit boy who lives in Roundbrook, a town of farmers.  Kenny loves to read books, especially science and fairy tales.  Kenny meets a dragon, Grahame, and becomes best friends with him.  Kenny goes into town to his friend George’s bookstore so that George and Grahame can meet, because he knows that the two will get along with each other wonderfully.  However, George is a knight for the king, and he has just gotten news that the dragon must be imminently exterminated.  Kenny does not know what to do.  Of course, this book is not a fairy tale even as it includes mythical creatures and prose.  In fact, it specifically brings the reader back to the point that things do not always work out for the best, even if it does in this story.
