This is a story about a knight, a dragon and a horse called Oats. Harry wished he was a knight so that he can follow in his family’s footsteps. So, one morning, as he sits cleaning the shields after a very muddy battle, he decided to do something to impress his family, by capturing Eric the Dragon. When he gets there, he realised that the dragon is so grumpy because he has toothache. To avoid being eaten by Eric, Harry manages to make a deal with Eric by helping him pull out the bad tooth. The Dragon was so gratefully that he let both of them (Harry and Oats the horse) ride on his back to Harry’s castle. Harry was rewarded by being knighted as he was brave and managed to convince the Dragon not to eat him!
The storyline is simple to understand and the book is quite easy to read. We have quite a number of Orion Publishing books so we are spoilt with great choices. Their books are very relevant and are age appropriate. I would definitely recommend Orion books.
