Dragonbreath #3: Curse of the Were-wiener Hardcover – September 16, 2010
Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
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.

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.
Ursula's trademark "quirkiness" is in full force here. ("Do you ever worry that your childhood is warping you in some fashion?" "Are you kidding? I'm counting on it.") Kids will love the cute story and interleaved comic book illustrations, and there are plenty of little tidbits thrown in for the grown ups. (Anyone book that can throw in the line "Joseph Campbell is spinning in his grave" and have it be apropos is totally awsome!)
I think the storytelling is a notch higher in this book than in previous books. With his best friend's life on the line, Danny's adventure has a bit more gravity and a bit less whimsy to it.
I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to anyone who would enjoy a bit of intelligent silliness.
