This is the 1st in a series.
From the kiwi dynamic duo of Kyle Mewburn and Donovan Bixley comes a new series about a shapeshifting boy called Merek. He has been practising for weeks for the Knight School tryouts and is nearly late for the beginning of the trials. Three medieval toffs (boys) blocked his way. He had to keep his temper or the unthinkable might happen – he’d turn into a dragon!
He makes the trials and they don’t go as well as planned – but he does make a new friend. His day goes from bad to worse and the story bends back around to where it began – with Merek clinging to a burning castle tower. You’ll have to read it to find out how he ended up there….
This story is non-stop action and laughs and interspersed with hilarious ‘info sections’ for the 6-9 yr old reader. These include pages titled, The top 3 reasons why people don’t live in swamps, The 5 most fearfully feared medieval fears, and many more.
The Dinosaur Rescue series is great fun, but this series is going to be even better.
