    Kenny Rabbit has always been a little different. While most in the tiny farming town of Roundbrook are, indeed, farmers, he is a perpetual bookworm and dreamer, always with one fanciful notion or another in his head. But now it appears that he may be just a little too different for the citizens of Roundbrook - after all, who on earth has a dragon for a best friend? <BR/><BR/>When the villagers learn of the dragon running loose over the countryside, they immediately designate it a scourge and mark it for imminent extermination, to be carried out by a dragon-slayer! Can Kenny figure out a way to make the villagers see the truth? Can he save his best friend? <BR/><BR/>KENNY & THE DRAGON is a touching tale of friendship that draws inventively from the classic story of St. George and the dragon. Kenny Rabbit is a protagonist you can't help but root for, and the illustrations in this book are simply adorable. While the prose in KENNY & THE DRAGON is a little cumbersome at times, it is not enough to detract from the charm of the tale, and the lessons taught are an effortless part of the story. <BR/><BR/>Children will be drawn in by the unique and lovable characters of Kenny Rabbit, Grahame the dragon, and George himself, and take away heartfelt lessons of courage, friendship, and diversity.

    I am a 6th grade student in Glendale,AZ.

    The story I am about to tell you is called Kenny and the Dragon. It is made by Tony Diterlizzi and illustrated by him too.there are three main characters in the book. The characters are Kenny,George and the dragon. Kenny is a rabbit and he likes to read books. George is an old hamster and he is one of Kenny's friend.At last but not least the dragon he's another friend of kenny also. Well,this is how the story goes kenny (rabbit) was reading a book borrowed from george.The next thing you known he sees his dad running torward the house. Then, kenny asked what happened and than he told him. So he went there and saw a gigantic dragon compared to him.After that happened he know he wasn't bad.Then,he goes to geroges book shop and retuns it. But, he doesn't know that he was a knight.the king called him and said to destroy the dragon. That's when the fight happened but, they became friends. They still had to get the crowd away.This books' setting was the downtown and the time was present. this is mostly about the guys best friend fighting. I think this book was ok because there wasn't that much action. I could connect to the world by I had happened to me that i have seen things just like in the book. another one is i had a friend fight with my other friend.
