Don’t be surprised if he eats spaghetti in the bathtub or roasts hot dogs in the living room. That’s just the pet dragon being a dragon. Where do you find pet dragons? Not at the park. And forget about the beach. No dragons there either. Maybe at the zoo? Good idea, but no. Believe it or not, dragons can generally be found at the drugstore, sitting at the counter; perhaps the dragon is sipping at a soda and of course, he’s wearing dark sunglasses and a felt hat. Think a dragon doing Humphrey Bogart impressions. And though you might be able to persuade the dragon to come along with you, you’ll soon find out that he isn’t the world’s greatest pet– not by a long shot. Dragons are too lazy and too messy for that. So you’re tired of that old dragon already and want to get rid of him? Good idea, but what if he just won’t listen to reason? David LaRochelle tells you how to lose the dragon in his very funny, quite tongue-in-cheek account of a little boy’s search for The Best Pet of All.
