Description

Fifth-grader Patrick can't read, but when the new girl next door encourages him to overcome his fears and try, he starts believing he isn't so stupid after allPatrick Lowe has always loved imagining his own fantastic stories of brave knights and dragons. Unfortunately, every time he tries to read, his father's voice pops up in his head telling him he's stupid, and the words on the page suddenly become too blurry to see. By his fifth grade year, Patrick has stopped trying to read altogether. He doesn't think he needs any friends, but his new next-door neighbor Celina just won't leave him alone. As Patrick and Celina slowly become friends, Celina starts reading The Sword and the Stone to him every afternoon. Patrick is entranced by this mythical world of white knights and vicious beasts, magic and adventure, but no matter how hard he tries, he himself still cannot read. But when Celina betrays his trust, Patrick finds himself betting to the class bully that he can read a story to the entire school. Patrick is determined to show everyone that he's no dummy, but can he get past his own fears and finally learn to read?
