This isn't a series that parents will enjoy reading aloud, but kids into knights, dragons, and swordfighting will like seeing how the characters grow from book to book. Dragon Slayers' Academy is a solidly average bunch of knightly tales, with Wiglaf trying to lead and Erica trying to be someone she isn't and the legendary Lancelot making more than one appearance. There are funny twists to the widely known legend of Camelot and villains lurking in every shadow, but somehow the stories fall short.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
