The Knight and the Dragon

by Tomie dePaola (Author)

The Knight and the Dragon
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade
Series: Paperstar Book

What happens when a sheepish knight and a not-so-fierce dragon fight for the very first time?

Well, it's no ordinary battle since the knight has to go to the castle library to learn about dragon-fighting and the dragon must dig through his ancestor's things to find out how to fight a knight!

Spontaneity of line and feeling are backed by zesty colors and a jovial, tongue-in-cheek tone to which children can relate--a top springtime choice. -- Booklist

There's a swirl of good-humored life to the book. -- The New York Times Book Review
