Description - The Boy and the Dragon by Eric Ode
With amusing rhythm, repetition, and alliteration, author Eric Ode introduces Simon the Wise, Bogsworth the Strong, and Randolph the Brave, who venture across the kingdom determined to vanquish the dragon that has been munching on townsfolk for lunch. The most unlikely band ever to have been knighted is accompanied by the littlest of sidekicks, Small Saul, who tags along with his trusty mandolin. Small Saul finds himself carrying more than a tune as he travels along with these bumbling, bragging, buffoons. He strums as they walk, providing a marching beat for their thrilling adventure. Over valley and dale, across rivers and mountains, and through the darkest of forests the intrepid heroes journey. The knights boasting overpowers Sauls very small voice of reason and the ensuing exploits are hilarious! Odes engaging poem is well matched with Jim Harriss colorful and humorous illustrations, the perfect combination for a knightly adventure. This is the second collaboration from this talented team.
