Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall 2008 Kids' List
“A fabulous fantasy/morality tale for all ages that covers friends, rumors, and intolerance -- and the good guys win in the end. It will become a classic.”
-- Liz Murphy, Learned Owl Book Shop, Hudson, OH


Description

What do you do when your new best buddy has been designated a scourge by the community and marked for imminent extermination? Just ask Kenny Rabbit. When the simple folks in the sleepy little village of Roundbrook catch wind that there's a dragon running loose in the countryside, they get the wrong idea and the stage is set for a fight to the death. So it's up to Kenny to give his neighbors front-row seats to one of the best-known battles in history -- the legendary showdown between St. George and the dragon -- without losing a friend in the fray.
