Praise for the Dragon series:

* "Dragon never disappoints... The series hero is affability incarnate." — Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Since nothing is actually easy for a beginner to read, what more could we ask for newcomers than the intrinsic reward of a genuinely funny book? Again and again Pilkey delivers." — Booklist
