    It is a pretty good book.

    No one slays a dragon in present. Where the heck is dragon, you might say. Wiglaf is a young timid future dragon slayer, but he faints when he sees a blood. Wiglaf, his princess friend Erica, and goodie lover Angus make a great trio in Kate McMullan¿s new try for fantasy book, Dragon Slayers¿ Academy, which won the Best Picture Book in The New York Times. Just because his parents want him to bring the gold, Wiglaf Accidentally slays two dragons, rescues the best knight of the world, goes field trip to dungeon and even meets a ghost. With simple and kiddish, but new and fun story of McMullan can be weird. Kids¿ chants and easy story, and characters¿ antics are basically for the children. But new ideas always come up with new book is never boring. Bill Basso¿s freaky but funny illustrations greatly match the funny mood of D.S.A. Well, this book requires readers to take some sick jokes like crazy knock-knocks. Also short but thick subplots will make readers to naturally guess the next story, even they didn¿t want to. Yet there are little problems within it. Sometimes too short and fast story might not be satisfying. But in some cases, this will be helpful, like for kids who can¿t read fat books like Harry Potter. Other one is that kiddish story wouldn¿t really fit for people over 13 years old. Fun, freaky, and weird, this is a book for kid readers or readers who want to read ¿something odd¿. It might not fit to people who are fans of serious books, since D.S.A. is a book that is very far from serious.

    A Really Funny Book

    I think this is one of the coolest books I have read recently. I started it last night and couldn't put it down until I was done with the last page. Then on to Book #2. Almost done with it too. I love this series. Easier to read than Harry Potter.
