|Author:||Nick Falk; Tony Flowers (Illustrator)|
|Series:||Billy Is a Dragon Ser.|
A new, laugh-out-loud series from the author and illustrator of Saurus Street
When nine-year-old Billy Fincher gets bitten by a lizard at his local pet shop, strange things start to happen. His fingernails turn into claws, his skin becomes green, and he starts breathing fire. Billy can't hide it any longer—he's turning into a dragon. When his parents decide to sell him to the zoo, Billy has to make a decision: find a way to change back, or lose his family forever. Being a dragon is more complicated than it sounds!
