This review is from: Dragonbreath (Dragonbreath (Hardcover)) (Hardcover)
Life is tough for Danny Dragonbreath - the only mythical creature in a school of reptiles and amphibians. A Komodo dragon keeps stealing his lunch, he can't breathe fire - no matter how many inspirational speeches his father gives - and he gats an F on his assignment, after he put so much imagination into it while scribbling on the bus. When his teacher insists he redo it, but with actual facts this time, Danny realises he needs a plan.

Not the kind of plan his best friend, Wendell the Iguana, has in mind - going to the library to do actual research. So when his mother points out that his Cousin Edward is a sea-serpent, Danny can't wait to go see him. And have real adventures.

With the help of some special breath mints, a coral reef, an ocean floor filled with curious creatures, a shipwreck, and the dark, dark depths, surely Danny can't go wrong. And no matter what Wendell says, this is far better than any library.

Ursula Vernon is brilliant. Her artwork is often funny, frequently strange and always wonderful, and her writing is no different. Her wit can entertain kids and adults alike, and the combination of prose and comics in this book make it a thoroughly enjoyable read. Not to mention educational about the creatures of the sea.

You'll never look a potato salad the same way again.

Can't wait for `Ninjabreath' - I mean, Ninja Frogs, c'mon!
(Suitable for ages 8-12 - her vocabulary is sometimes a bit complex.)

This review is from: Dragonbreath (Dragonbreath (Hardcover)) (Hardcover)
Danny Dragonbreath may dream of being a fearsome pirate on the high seas, but in reality, he's just a young dragon - the only mythical creature in an entire school of reptiles and amphibians - who can't even breathe fire yet and spends his days defending himself from bullies and vicious potato salad lunches, before the bullies steal them.

He doesn't really know anything about the ocean, either, so when his best friend, Wendell the iguana, refuses to help him pull together a last minute report on the ocean, Danny (who makes up something about "snorkelbats") receives a huge fat "F." Since going to the library and actually doing research is not something Danny would stoop to, he decides to follow his mom's advice and visit his cousin, Edward, a sea serpent who lives in the Sargasso Sea.

Poor Wendell gets dragged along for "the fun" of exploding sea cucumbers, sharks, and hostile mermen. The dragon and iguana do manage to learn some neat ocean facts before they come across a giant squid and have to fight for their lives. Will Danny manage to save Wendell from an untimely, tentacle death? More importantly, will he ever get his report finished?

Formatted in a tightly woven design that meshes graphic novel with traditional chapter text, this hilarious story is absolutely perfect for the younger male reader who refuses to pick up a book. This is one new series to definitely keep an eye on, with the next book expected in Spring of 2010, and one to be enjoyed by anyone who loves to laugh out loud.
