Peter Bently's unique mix of rhyming verse, storytelling, and humor is a surefire hit with young readers. In King Jack and the Dragon, Jack, his toddler brother Caspar, and his friend Zack build a make-believe fort capable of stopping the attacks of fire-breathing dragons and all sorts of other beasties. But as playtime draws to a close and his knights get carried away by marauding parents, Jack discovers that defending a magical fort is more fun with a few friends.

"This celebration of imaginative play is deftly narrated by Andrew Watts. After building their fort, King Jack and his loyal men, Zack and baby Caspar, courageously battle dragons until the loyal men are taken away by giants. The fort building and dragon battling are performed with the right amount of excitement and energy. Jack battles along bravely until a thing with four feet comes for him, and then, like his loyal men, he is whisked off by a giant. Young listeners will experience just enough spine-tingling excitement before discovering that it is Jack's parents come to put him to bed in his warm, safe house. Calmness descends with Watts's reassuring narration, leaving the listener quietly content. Pacing is perfect for listening only or for following along. J.K.R. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
