Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lisette Baez
Danny Dragonbreath is the guy you want on your side should you ever find yourself surrounded by monsters or tortured by your mother’s obsession for healthy foods. Danny will come to your rescue and help you get out of any jam. This exciting series will intrigue young readers instantly. It has the perfect amount of humor and fantasy, as well as great illustrations that quickly capture the essence of the story. Danny’s friend Wendell the Iguana had been losing sleep for a week with the worst nightmares. He is desperate and requires Danny’s expertise. Danny vows to help his friend and follows the wise advice of his Great-Granddad Dragonbreath. Danny stays up all night to watch Wendell and rid him of his dilemma, but when Danny realizes it’s not just nightmares, he must change his plan. There is a dream wasp trying to lay eggs in Wendell’s head! What is Danny to do? Will he be able to help Wendell, or will the iguana forever be plagued with monstrous nightmares? Book eight in the “Dragonbreath” series. Reviewer: Lisette Baez; Ages 8 to 10.
Kirkus Reviews
Tasked with driving a fearsome Dream Wasp away from Wendell, their nerdy reptilian buddy, Danny Dragonbreath and Suki the salamander crawl into his sleeping brain. Eeeww. So exhausted from lack of rest that he gets an A- on a test and reluctant to seek help from his New-Age mother ("No, Mom, not the kelp!"), Wendell turns in desperation to Danny's wise if mythological great-grandfather Dragonbreath for advice. Thus it is that Danny and Suki, with a "baku" (dream eater) in tow, are soon on their way. They stumble through dream chambers stuffed with mounds of unappetizing health food, run from monstrous school bullies and search zillions of books (Reasons That I Will Die of Shame if Suki Ever Finds Out I Like Her) on the way to climactically vanquishing the giant Wasp (eek) and smashing her slime-filled eggs (yuck). As in episodes past, Vernon tells the tale in a running mix of prose and green-highlighted drawings with dialogue balloons, slides in wisecracks galore and closes with a teaser for the next chapter (something involving "mutant thieves"). "It's impossible! It's unnatural! It's weird!" exclaims Suki. Readers will echo Danny's response: "Good enough for me!" (Graphic hybrid fantasy. 8-11)

    From my seven year old son, to whom I'm reading this book - "It is AWESOME!"

    I've appreciated how the series has progressed in sophistication of humor to appeal to the audience. My son loves the story and the protagonists, and the motivations and reactions to situations seem very characteristic of his general approach and interests. He wanted me to say that he loves how, in every book of the series there is at least one mythological creature featured. I'll add that the writing pushes and stretches him with each passing entry, and we interrupt the narrative frequently to discuss what things mean, why a character reacts to a situation the way they did, and how he might do things the same or differently if he ever found himself in a similar predicament. Great fun summer reading for us to share!

    Iguana

    Sunbathes under the sunlamp that clings on the side of its cage, tail flicking lonely. It layed its head down.
