Kenny has found a friend, a dragon friend. Everyone knows that dragons are ferocious fire breathing monsters who must be slayed knights of the kingdom. And wouldn't you know it, Kenny's other good friend turns out to be the knight chosen to kill his new friend.

Kenny and the Dragon by Tony DeTerlizzi is a revised, modern version of the classic tale The Reluctant Dragon with lovely new black and white illustrations. Perfect for bedtime read-a-loud or for independent readers in 4th - 6th grade.

Read the classic tale also and compare the two.
