Kiki found success when browsing the book section of BJs over the weekend with Danny Dragonbreath by Ursula Vernon. Hal at first protested, but has since finished the book and was excitedly showing Kiki the note at the back that said a second book about the same character is in the works. Next challenge: getting Hal to do a book report on it. Ironically (not) the book is about a dragon who cannot breath fire and goes to a school for amphibians i.e. completely out of place and alienated. There are a fair amount of comic book like graphics, a sort of graphic novel, and very appealing to Hal. Kiki knew it would be, but it was a bit of a hurdle getting him to settle down and give the book a try.
