Dough Knights and Dragons by Dee Leone Illustrated by George Ermos
Due to their collective love for cooking and baking, an unlikely friendship blossoms between a knight and a dragon. Unfortunately for the pair, friendship is forbidden between knights and dragons. In fact, when a knight comes of an age by law, he is expected to engage in duel to the death with a dragon. As that day approaches, the now inseparable pair have an ingenuous idea. Together they collaborate on a plan to stay true to the law without harming each other.
Told in rhyme, Dough Knights and Dragons is pure delight to read aloud to students.
