In this eighth volume of the Dragonbreath series, Danny and Suki must venture into Wendell’s mind to help him with his horrible nightmares. With Great-grandfather Dragonbreath’s help, they discover that a nasty Dream Wasp wants to lay its eggs in Wendell’s brain. The only thing that can help them is a baku—a Japanese dream-eater. Young readers will find another funny adventure with just enough scary bits and some comics pages (in black, white, and green) to keep the story moving. Series fans will grab this quickly, while new readers will want to find the earlier books. Grades 3-5, --Kat Kan
