Written by: Ursula Vernon
Genre: fiction, graphic novel
Reviewed by: Seth J., Grade 5
This book tells the story of a dragon named Danny Dragonbreath and his best friend Wendell, who is an iguana. A lot of the story takes place at the school where they both attend.
Danny notices how the hot dog he orders for lunch is red like the color of blood and doesn't look right. The book tells how Wendell is bitten by the hotdog after he picks it up to look at it. The hot dog that bit Wendell is known as a "were-wiener". Strange things begin to happen to Wendell and to others who are bitten by the "were-wieners". Danny's main objective is to save Wendell and to destroy the leader of the "were-wieners", known as the Alpha Wurst.
The book takes place mainly at school. Danny Dragonbreath is an adventurous young boy. He does not like following rules, but is a very good friend to Wendell. He reminds me of my good friend Jack who is always looking for a new adventure.
I found the illustrations to be very interesting. They remind me of the kind that you find in comic books.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good adventure and likes to have a good laugh. Those who like really silly humor would enjoy reading this book.
