  • I chose this book because the title and the cover illustration a dragon and a knight seemed very interesting King Arthur s Very Great Grandson is about a six year old knight seeking physical challenges and adventure, but no one will duel with him Instead, he discovers friendship I did not like this book because the story was not entertaining in any way shape or form The font and the colors are bright and exciting, but the story itself is not The plot does not develop and the story line, in no wa [...]

  • The book is about a child named Henry It is his birthday and he goes out searching for monsters to destroy The farther he goes on his adventure, the worse it is turning out for him But in the end, he discovers he gained something from the trip of his.I really liked the book but the ending for me was a little weird It did not have a flow to the end, it just kind of ended.I would keep this in my library for my students to use and maybe to teach them that most strangers can turn into friends.

  • Must read aloud Can t wait to try this one out on my nehphews It s a fun fractured fairy tale that reminds me of DePaola s The Knight and the Dragon Whereas much of the humor in Depaola s story is found in the illustrations, in this book it s the language that really sets it apart The illustrations are great and the encounters with mythical creatures are memorable.Recommended for schools, libraries, as a gift for young boys and for group storytelling everywhere.
