“A fabulous fantasy/morality tale for all ages that covers friends, rumors, and intolerance -- and the good guys win in the end. It will become a classic.”
— Liz Murphy, Learned Owl Book Shop, Hudson, OH

Now in paperback, the New York Times bestselling tale of chivalry and showmanship from Tony DiTerlizzi.

Kenny is a little rabbit with a very big problem. His two best friends are heading into a battle of legendary proportions—with each other! In one corner there’s Grahame, a well-read and cultured dragon with sophisticated tastes. In the other there’s George, a retired knight and dragon slayer who would be content to spend the rest of his days in his bookshop. Neither really wants to fight, but the village townsfolk are set on removing Grahame from their midst and calling George out of retirement. Can Kenny avert disaster?

Tony DiTerlizzi puts a fun-filled, thoroughly theatrical spin on Kenneth Grahame’s classic tale of subterfuge and showmanship with this lighthearted romp of a retelling.
