Synopses & Reviews
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 in Kenneth's sleepy little village catch wind that 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.
New York Times Bestseller Tony DiTerlizzi puts a fun-filled, thoroughly theatrical spin on Kenneth Graeme's classic tale of subterfuge and showmanship with this lighthearted romp of a retelling where it's up to one clever little rabbit to give his neighbors front row seats for one of the best-known battles in history, the showdown between St. George and the Dragon.
What do you do when your new best buddy has been designated a scourge by the community and marked for imminent extermination? Just ask Kenny Rabbit. When the simple folks in the sleepy little village of Roundbrook catch wind that there's a dragon running loose in the countryside, they get the wrong idea and the stage is set for a fight to the death. So it's up to Kenny to give his neighbors front-row seats to one of the best-known battles in history -- the legendary showdown between St. George and the dragon -- without losing a friend in the fray.
