Nickerbacher, The Funniest Dragon is Story Monsters approved.
— One of the student judges said, "Everything was perfect! I loved it! It was awesome!"
— From the teacher/coordinator: "The expressions on the character's faces help facilitate the story and express their personalities. The kids and I enjoyed reading this. We shared some good laughs."
Children are busier than ever. They spend all day at school; some are part of extended education. When not at school, they participate in sports, church, and other activities that leave little downtime. It's no wonder that few children take the time to read for pleasure. Books must be compelling, with solid characters that kids can relate to.
Nickerbacher loves to make people laugh. So much so that he wants to make a career out of being a comedian; he practices his routine on Princess Gwendolyn with great success. She roars at his antics, especially the imitation of his papa. Laughter is music to his ears and compels Nickerbacher to write effective material.
Nickerbacher and his father have a strained relationship. Papa Dragon wants Nickerbacher to have a traditional job so he can be safe. But Nickerbacher intends to break new ground. Their love grows stronger by the end of the story because they learn to understand a perspective different from their own.
