After hearing many a dragon tales from a passing minstrel who foretold him that one day he will be mighty hero, Wiglaf decides to join Dragon Slayer’s Academy with his trusty pig- Latin-speaking pig Daisy. But the academy is nothing like he expected and he is not quite sure he can kill a dragon.
This is a great read aloud for the family; parents will enjoy the inside jokes throughout this spoof of brave knights and fierce dragons. The comical situations will have the beginner reader wanting the next in the series.
