Age 3-6. The new Rascal series. 'Flap your wings, Rascal,' says Ben. But Rascal's wings don't work. What else can he use? In Ben's world, dragons exist like dogs and fulfil all the doggy functions with dragon overlays like having two heads or being able to fly. The dragons all correspond to various breeds of dog. At last, some Paul Jennings' books for early readers, each with the satisfying trademark Paul Jennings twist!

This book was a waste! it was a 10 minute short story about rascal who wants to fly but cannot - he eventually does, but what a waste of a credit for only 10 minutes of story time.

I got this book for my granddaughter. I remember reading these books to my kids when they were in grade school. My granddaughter is 4 and her attention span perhaps is not long enough for this length of book yet. However, the portion in which she did sit long enough to listen to, she liked. I will try again when she is a little older.
