A Friend for Dragon

A Friend for Dragon

by Dav Pilkey

A lonely little dragon ventures into the world looking for a friend. He is tricked into thinking he has found one after an apple falls on his head. He becomes grief stricken when he believes the apple is lost to him. Will he have his friend back again?

"Dragon's the butt of a practical joke, but in his innocence, he emerges the winner… The silliness is right on target for tickling young readers." — Booklist

"Pilkey's endearing stories are perfect for beginning readers." — Publishers Weekly
