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 fans of Wimpy Kid and Bad Kitty.

A friend from college pointed me to this hilarious and cute book. If the book has a dragon in it, he's probably read it. Did I like it? ...I'm counting down the days until I can go back to the library and get more! Danny Dragonbreath is a young dragon who is a mythical creature caught in a reali...
Worth it for the illustrations alone, which are completely adorable (but if you know Vernon, that comes as no surprise). The text is occasionally a little info-dumpy for an adult reader--very "here is a list of cool facts about the ocean, kids! isn't science neat?"--but since the intended audience i...
