When a traveling minstrel foretells that he is to become a hero, Wiglaf sets out to fulfill his destiny: he signs up at the Dragon Slayers' Academy. But how can he ever hope to be a dragon slayer when he can't even stand the sight of blood?

Praise For The New Kid at School #1

"Wizards, dragons, a secret princess, a pig who speaks Pig Latin, and a hero who is served boiled eel on a bun.  What more could you possibly want in a book." -Jon Szieszka

"Here's a young hero who could well be Harry Potter's little brother." -Mary Pope Osborne
