Publisher's Summary

Digory is a sweet boy, although he doesn't exactly appreciate the same things as his rambunctious brothers or blacksmith mother. He likes playing the flute, thinking interesting thoughts, and writing silly songs. But all this changes one day when Digory discovers a dragon's tooth in the forest. When he returns to the village to show off his treasure, everyone assumes Digory slayed a dragon! Can Digory still be a normal, non-dragon-slaying boy now that he's been mistaken for a hero? The story of a shy, funny-looking village boy who finds himself rescuing princesses, fighting dragons, and living happily ever after.

What the Critics Say


Reviews "Beck's rumpled drawings and vignettes add more amiably comic touches. Ready cheeks; insert tongues." ( Kirkus Reviews)
"In this affectionate send-up of heroic fantasy, Digory is a reluctant knight who gamely tries to live up to the role of dauntless hero, while Enid is a refreshingly independent princess. The amusing black-and-white drawings add to the mock-medieval fun. The lighthearted plot and the strong underlying message about courage and individuality make this a good choice for fantasy fans." (School Library Journal)
