Kenny and the Dragon
by Tony DiTerlizzi
Kids Wings Award

Kenny Rabbit and his family live in a small farming community. His father keeps sheep high on Shepard's Hill, but Kenny is more interested in reading and dreaming of exploring and going on great adventures. Can you imagine how excited he was when his father burst in one night saying he had seen a dragon on Shepard's Hill? This is the beginning of a great, friendship, one that requires Kenny to use his courage, perseverance, literary finesse, and even a willingness to sacrifice his own safety to save his friend.

Author / Illustrator Tony DiTerlizzi weaves magic with his storytelling style, new animal characters, sparkling vocabulary, and precious pencil sketches that bring the story to life.

This story revives a classic,The Reluctant Dragon by Kenneth Grahame, and will most likely become a classic itself.

Thumbnail pages from the Kids' Wings unit:


"Young Arthur doesn't understand why pulling a sword from a stone qualifies him for kingship. Old Merlin tells him a story of his childhood, when he first learned to trust in himself: a story about fighting dragons, clashing armies, and a young boy's prophetic dreams. Merlin's story inspires young Arthur with the confidence he will need to become a great king.
Masterfully narrated by film star Kevin Kline"
