Review: Sterling watches the knights in shining armour every day, with everyone afraid of the dragon the flies outside the walls. He decides he is going to become one and slay the evil dragon, but then he finds that what he knew isn’t correct.

I love this story it is so beautiful and sends a great message for helping those in need. Sterling had it in his mind that the dragon was only what he’d heard, read or knew. The instant he saw the dragon his opinions changed and he used all his skills in kindness to make the dragons life better.

The illustrations were really beautiful and I loved seeing the beautiful dragon, the cute tiny village that Sterling lived in. This is such a great book for teaching children about kindness and compassion, that what you know may not be true. It is also a fun fantasy story that takes you to a whole different world and is so fun to read.
