A dragon named Nickerbacher guards a princess "because his papa told him to." However, he practices his jokes on Princess Gwendolyn, as he yearns to be a stand-up comedian. The young dragon gets up the nerve to tell his papa about his dream and is sternly reminded of his dragonly duty. Later that day, Prince Happenstance arrives for the princess and repeatedly challenges the dragon to fight. The opponents manage to find common ground and Nickerbacher leaves for the big city to pursue his dream.
Nickerbacher is the only dragon who wants to make people laugh. And in the process, he encourages the prince (and kids) to be themselves and follow their dreams.

My take on this book:
Delightful is the word I would use to describe Nickerbacher The Funniest Dragon! While this book is a fun filled, eye catching read it's the positive message that you can't help but take away from the story that makes this book a winner! The illustrations are perfectly paired with the text in this story which provides a visual treat for the reader and is certain to catch younger readers imagination. Nickerbacher is a young dragon who has a job to do, now mind you it's not the job he wants to do but it's the job that his papa tells him to do. Thing is Nickerbacher dreams of doing something else, but will his parents understand?

Young readers are going to enjoy reading about this interesting dragon, but I think the young at heart will enjoy this story as well. A great story with a positive message, I hope that perhaps the author might create a series around the adventures of Nickerbacher!

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
