Arvor’s Schooldays By Jonathan Ferrier

Arvor is a young dragon.  When his father says it's time for him to start school, he's ready.  But is the school?

The author and Publishing Push gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy at Barnes and Noble,, Waterstones,, or Google Books.

Arvor is smaller than most dragons, can't fly, and isn't very athletic.  That sets him apart from the main crowd.  He makes his own friends, though, so it's not all bad.

I found this amusing and fun to read.  Arvor is always getting in trouble and it's not all his fault.  He's just unfortunate enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time or, because he's clumsy, he creates an all new problem.

Each chapter is another Arvor adventure.  From being bullied, falling through a window, and saving the prize egg, Arvor is busy in this book.  He even gets accused of cheating.  Everything works out and you find yourself rooting for Arvor as time goes on.  He might not do everything right, but he's a good friend and he usually triumphantly comes out on top despite the odds.

This story lets your child know it's not possible to be best at everything and problems can be overcome.  There are parts that will make them laugh.  Why not share it with them?
