In this paperback edition of the hilarious Return of the Underwear Dragon, brave Sir Cole teaches his former sworn enemy to read.

Once Sir Cole has saved the kingdom from the destructive wrath of the Underwear Dragon, he has the startling realization that the Underwear Dragon wasn't disobeying the signs that said not to attack. The Underwear Dragon just couldn't read the signs!

So Sir Cole sets out on a valiant quest. He’s not going to conquer the Underwear Dragon—he’s going to teach him to read. But it's hard to teach a fire-breathing creature to read an actual book because he sets them all on fire. Besides, the Underwear Dragon is a reluctant reader. But when the Underwear Dragon finally succeeds, Sir Cole presents his star pupil with the perfect gift--gigantic alphabet underwear!

The creative team of Scott Rothman and Pete Oswald collaborated on Attack of the Underwear Dragon and the forthcoming Blue Bison Needs a Haircut.

Praise For…

"Rothman and Oswald’s delightful sequel rightly captures the thrills and vexations afflicting all new readers. Now it’s the Underwear Dragon’s turn in the spotlight, and shine he does. The stylized artwork, meanwhile, retains its ability to provoke laughs and sympathy in equal measure. Hooray for the Underwear Dragon!" --Kirkus Reviews

"Readers will likely take [the story] in stride, along with Rothman’s casually rhymed prose, for the entirely ridiculous sight of a dragon in underpants blundering clumsily through Oswald’s cartoon illustrations. Both the fundamental value of literacy and the old principle of getting the right book to the right reader, every librarian’s goal, shine as brightly as ever." --Booklist
