Dragon Was Terrible by Kelly DiPucchio

 Can This Naughty Beast Be Tamed?

The kingdom is faced with a problem. A super terrible, problem. A dragon-gone-bad-to-worse problem.

The king posts a sign for the brave knights. Whoever can tame the dragon will be rewarded with a gift. A nice gift. The knights line up to show off their skills and win the gift. But they all fail miserably. Unfortunately, the dragon grows more terrible, if that’s even possible. He chases ducklings around the moat and TP’s the castle.

The villagers then post a sign for the brave people saying that if someone can tame the terrible dragon the king will reward them with a gift. Most likely a nice gift (they hope). Again they all fail, embarrassingly so.

And the dragon grows even MORE terrible! He pops birthday balloons and draws funny faces on the drawbridge. But a boy wearing a feathered cap and a look of determination has also had enough of the dragon!

Will he be clever enough to tame the wild and crazy. . . and naughty dragon?
