A fun-filled, thoroughly theatrical spin on the classic tale – The Reluctant Dragon - of subterfuge and showmanship. Kenny is a rabbit with two great friends – one of them a dragon and the other a retired knight. But when the local village folk discover there’s a dragon running loose the stage is set for a battle of legendary proportions unless Kenny can stop it. Stunning illustrations and terrific writing from the creator of the Spiderwick Chronicles makes this a book to really treasure and to read and reread time and time again.

Synopsis

Kenny And The Dragon by Tony Diterlizzi

Kenneth is a little rabbit with a very big problem. His two best friends are heading for a battle of legendary proportions - with each other! In one corner there's Graeme, a well-read and cultured dragon, with sophisticated tastes and no stomach for battle. In the other, there's George, a retired knight and dragon slayer who would be content to spend the rest of his days in his bookshop with a pipe and a good book.

But when the townsfolk catch wind there's a dragon running loose in the countryside, and call George out of retirement, the stage is set. And it's up to Kenny to avert disaster. A fun-filled, thoroughly theatrical spin on a classic tale of subterfuge and showmanship.
