Village Town is in flames--and a red dragon is to blame! The flames have been spilling down the side of Mount Mountain for days now, and Thud and Blunder are sick and tired of putting out fires. So these two nine-year-old knights take up arms and march up the mountain to slay the dreaded Deadly Dragon, Thermathraxxitalicus (or “Thermy” for short). But when they come face to face with the fiery beast...he bursts into tears! Can Thud and Blunder figure out what’s wrong with this whiney dragon before their entire town is turned to ash? Nothing is what it seems in this fantasy adventure series of early chapter books! Featuring discussion questions, writing prompts, and glossaries these books are guaranteed to engage readers’ critical thinking skills. Part of the Thud and Blunder series.
