What did you like about the book? Following the knighthood of Sir Cole, he seeks out his own assistant knight (this book is a sequel). Overwhelmed by his applicants, he sets out for a walk, which leads him to believe that the reason the underwear dragon previously entered and attacked the kingdom is because the underwear dragon couldn’t read the signs saying not to do these things. Sir Cole sets out to find the underwear dragon and teach him to read. A very cute book set to inspire kids to read and look for the reasons behind people’s actions.
