Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Ursula Vernon (www.ursulavernon.com) lives, writes, paints, and firmly believes adults should still be allowed to trick-or-treat in Pittsboro, North Carolina.

More About the Author

Ursula Vernon is the author and illustrator of "Nurk," "Digger," "Dragonbreath" and a number of other projects. The daughter of an artist, she spent her youth attempting to rebel and become a scientist, but eventually succumbed to the siren song of paint (although not before getting a degree in anthropology, because life isn't complete without student loans, right?). Her work has been nominated for an Eisner award, "Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition" and a number of Webcomics Choice Awards. Her comic "Digger" won the Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story in 2012, 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 boyfriend, his beagle, a small collection of cats, and a large collection of Indonesian masks, all of which mostly contrive to keep her out of trouble.

In this latest volume of the series, the story lags a little. The artwork is just as good and the sarcasm drips from the page. If you liked the others, you'll like this one too. I would not recommend starting the series by reading this one because of the slower pace of the story. Still enjoyable and a very quick read because of the graphic nature of the series.

Format: Hardcover
Danny and Wendell are best friends, and are excited about their new trick-or-treat plan that will ensure them to collect the most candy on Halloween. Is their plan a smash hit, or does it begin to go down-hill? It was bad enough that Christina did not believe in dragons, but now the boys were forced into including her in the group. Were the boys overwhelmed with joy, or did this idea present a problem? Who is the school bully, and what request was presented to the boys? Who set out on a mission to enter the creepy, haunted house, and was the ghost and clown friendly? Danny and Wendell find themselves in one big mess, how do they get out of it? Was Danny's vampire costume a big hit, and who asked Christina to join the group? I highly recommend this fun-filled, delightful children's book to parents of young children. The book is funny, easy-to-read, and is the perfect holiday book for Halloween parties, and celebrations. A wonderful read for children, ages nine through twelve.

Format: Hardcover
Reason for Reading: Next in the series.

Once a kids' series like this has reached a certain number of books, it always follows through with an obligatory Hallowe'en story and this is Dragonbreath's Hallowe'en entry. Breaking form from the other books where they usually travel to meet with one of Danny's relatives to help them with the situation in which they find themselves, this time Danny, Wendell and classmate Christiana go trick or treating and end up with a real ghost on their hands. Lots of fun! Wendell meets his match with an even geekier kid than himself in Christiana. While Wendell's costume is an hydrogen atom, Christiana's is a salmonella bacteria and Christiana talks science using words even Wendell has to look up in a dictionary. But Christiana has a weakness, her scientific mind leads her to being a skeptic about anything unproven, even the fact that Danny is a dragon! So ultimately it is Christiana who has the hardest time facing a real ghost. An enjoyable book, full of everything we've come to expect from Danny Dragonbreath, with a nice combination of text and brief graphic panels. Fans will be delighted, references are made to adventures from previous books for faithful readers. While not my favourite in the series certainly up to par with the rest. Looking forward to the next volume which features one of my favourite cryptids, the jackalope

I was a little apprehensive bout ordering these books for my 9-year old son. He's finicky about hos books. I took the risk and he LOVES them. I've purchased every book in the series and he keeps asking for more.

My 6 year old daughter LOVED reading this book. There are a lot of words in it that she doesn't know, so if I'm sitting with her when she is reading it, I can teach her some good vocabulary words too. After reading it, she immediately wanted all the other books in the series and wants to be Danny Dragonbreath for Halloween next year (Halloween is tomorrow, so it was too late for this year).

I have two children ages 8 and 14. Both of them (yes even the 14 year old) love this series of books. My 8 year old son will even read this in one sitting without putting the book down.
