There's No Such Thing As a Dragon

Written by: Jack Kent

First line: Billy Bixby was rather surprised when he woke up one morning and found a dragon in his room.

Why you should read this book: Despite the presence of a very real dragon in the house, Billy's mother insists that there's no such thing as a dragon, and every times she makes this assertion, the dragon gets a little bit bigger. Even when the dragon is so large that it's wearing Billy's house like the shell on a snail, his mother continues to deny the existence of dragons. It's up to Billy to comment on the elephant (dragon) in the room and restore reason and sanity to their prosaic suburban lives.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You're really good at ignoring things that clash with your worldview.
