What do you do when your new best buddy has been designated a scourge by the community and marked for imminent extermination? Just ask Kenny Rabbit. When the simple folks in the sleepy little village of Roundbrook catch wind that there's a dragon running loose in the countryside, they get the wrong idea and the stage is set for a fight to the death. So it's up to Kenny to give his neighbors front-row seats to one of the best-known battles in history -- the legendary showdown between St. George and the dragon -- without losing a friend in the fray.

Discussion Questions 1.) Are we meant to think that Kenny’s solution to the battle between St. George and Grahame is deceptive and tricky or a clever and courageous act to save his friends? 2.) Is Kenny’s bookish knowledge better than his father’s life experiences? 3.) Does Grahame’s love of the theater have any influence on Kenny’s plan to save his friends? 4.) Does the king know in advance that the battle is an act? 5.) How does the game of chess mimic life? 6.) How can Grahame be so sure “There will be no exterminations—imminent or otherwise?" 7.) How was Kenny inspired by his friends to solve the problem of fighting till death? 8.) Are we meant to think Grahame is a coward for refusing to fight St. George? 9.) Grahame described his fellow dragons as being “earnest." What does this mean? How did that apply to his life? 10.) Has Kenny or any of his friends shown any growth in their characters? see more
