New book: Danny the Dragon
Robert Z. Hicks’s newly released “Danny the Dragon” is an exciting children’s story about a gentle dragon who is teased for his kindness—until he becomes an unlikely hero.
“Danny the Dragon” by Robert Z. Hicks, from Christian Faith Publishing, is an inspiring children’s picture book told in rhyme. Danny isn’t like the other dragons because he doesn’t join in their flame-throwing pranks. When an evil army invades the kingdom, Danny stays to face them while the other dragons flee in fear. Danny becomes the hero, and the other dragons learn a lesson about being nice.
Dramatic illustrations by gifted Florida artist Ashley Otis bring Danny to life! A study guide is included. The book is endorsed by the American Dyslexia Association for easy-to-read text and formatting.
