Series: Dragonbreath #1

It’s not easy for Danny Dragonbreath to be the sole mythical creature in a school for reptiles and amphibians—especially because he can’t breathe fire like other dragons (as the school bully loves to remind him). But having a unique family comes in handy sometimes, like when his sea-serpent cousin takes Danny and his best iguana friend on a mindboggling underwater tour, complete with vomiting sea cucumbers and giant squid. It sure beats reading the encyclopedia to research his ocean report . . .
I really got a kick out of Dragonbreath, the first in a series. It’s half graphic novel, half chapter book format. It features different creatures, including our main character who is a dragon. Only, he’s having some problems learning how to breathe fire. When him and his best friend take a tour of the ocean with his cousin, a sea-serpent, he manages to almost breathe fire – only he’s underwater.. so it sizzles out right away. The water is full of fascinating and frightening creatures, but will Danny survive to write his report on the ocean?
