Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this third Dragonbreath adventure, Danny first realizes there’s something wrong with his school cafeteria hot dog, and then the hot dog bites his best friend, Wendell. When Wendell and other students start itching, growing hair, and staring at the moon, Danny knows he has to find and destroy the main were-wiener. This time around, Vernon uses black, white, green, and red in the comic-like panels and illustrations that accompany the prose text. The book is just spooky enough for young readers who don’t want to get too scared, and it features the return of the monster potato salad. Grades 3-5. --Kat Kan

About the Author

Ursula Vernon lives in Pittsboro, North Carolina, where vampiric hot dogs dare not tread. At least she hopes.

More About the Author

Ursula Vernon is the author and illustrator of "Nurk," "Digger," "Dragonbreath," "Castle Hangnail," and the forthcoming "Hamster Princess." Her Eisner-nominated comic "Digger" won the Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story and the Mythopoeic Award, and her children's book "Dragonbreath" won the Sequoyah Award in 2013.

Ursula grew up in Oregon and Arizona, went to college at Macalester College in Minnesota, and stayed there for ten years, until she finally learned to drive in deep snow and was obligated to leave the state.

Having moved across the country several times, she eventually settled in Pittsboro, North Carolina, where she works full-time as an artist, writer, and creator of oddities. She lives with her husband, a beagle, and a small collection of cats.

Our 8 yr old son LOVED the Dragon Breath series because they make him "Laugh his head off!". He has read every book in the series, a few of them in a day. When asked why he likes these books he said "Because they have good characters, are funny, adventurous, and the story lines are crazy - crazy AWESOME!". All of theses things make this book and the others in the series incredibly interesting to a kiddo who enjoys funny adventures.

As a parent I appreciate that they are funny without being totally stupid and that they are easy to read without being "dumbed down". I would say the reading level is higher than Big Nate but not as high as say Harry Potter. These are great transition books for readers who need a bit more of a challenge. However they are also great for more advanced readers who just want to read a great story about an amazing adventure.

Overall a great series and I would highly recommend for the 8-9 yr old set.

Danny and Wendell's school served a bad batch of Were Wieners. Danny's hot dog bites Wendell. The two only have a day and half to track down and kill the pack leader to save Wendell and the other students.

"This is useless! Danny wanted to yell as Mr. Snaug droned on about something - the stratosphere or adding factions or something. Don't you see the class has lycanthro - lycatrop- lyka- werewolfism!? The only thing that kept him from leaping onto his chair and shouting that out loud - other than the fact that he couldn't pronounce the word, even inside his head- was that if he did, he'd probably get after-school detention. And tonight of all nights, he couldn't afford to be late, or have his mom get wind of any trouble. She'd agreed to let him spend the night at Wendell's , but if he came home with notes about yelling gibberish in class, she might reconsider. "

Like the first two , the friendship chemistry and dialogue between Danny and Wendell are very good. Though this time Danny and Wendell are on their own. Before I started, I thought it was a given that Danny and Wendell would get on the bus to visit one of Danny's many relatives.

When this didn't happen, I thought to myself, "What!, look at Vernon keeping me on my reading toes." I would've been more than happy with keeping things the same but Vernon decided different and it worked just as well.

Curse of the Were-Wiener is a little more scary and creepy then the first two. Though not too much, just enough to make it that more fun to read and maybe causing a few arm hairs stand up. Dragonbreath is a great suggestion for Diary of the Wimpy Kid fans, since its very funny and part graphic novel as well. The series can be read out of order, however, I highly recommend starting from the beginning.

My grandson loved these books and it was so easy to order them this way since we only have one bookstore close by and they didn't have these books.
