How to Slay a Dragon (The Journals of Myrth, #1)
Bill Allen

Ruuan is a very large dragon. Twelve-year-old Greg Hart can’t slay a dragon. He’d be lucky to win a fight against one of the smaller girls at school.
Now the magicians of Myrth have mistaken him for a legendary warrior, so they’ve yanked Greg into their world of sorcery and danger. Nothing will stop the people of Myrth from believing Greg will rescue King Peter’s daughter from Ruuan the dragon. After all, Greg has been named in a prophecy, and no prophecy has ever been wrong before.
Until now.

“When Greg opened his eyes his first reaction was to close them again instantly. This turned out to be his second reaction as well. He might have given it a third go had one of the hooded figures hovering over him not poked him with a sharp stick before he could get to it.”

This was delightfully amusing for the younger reader, clever morality and fun adventure. Very interesting to compare it with Red Planet, aimed at a similar age bracket in the same country but some 60 plus years earlier and without the humourous slant. Still, a lot of fun and something to come back to.
