After accepting a challenge (from his sister) to make the most new friends at their new school, Warren discovers that there is way more to making friends than he first anticipated.
Warren's interactions with Dragon are quite entertaining especially since Dragon had a quite high opinion of himself. They got each other’s back and make a great pair. I wish I had an insight into how they first met.
I loved how the story flowed and how it put you right there inside Warren's mind with the timely one line monologues. Dragon's shenanigans and his reasoning got my daughter to chuckle often while we read the book.
My husband pointed out that Warren and Dragon has a Calvin and Hobbes vibe and I totally agree with him. This is an excellent read aloud for parents and their little ones.

After he became the lucky pet sitter... I mean the lucky guardian for their school hamster Chewy for the weekend, Warren was pretty confident he had everything planned out and under control. Except nothing went according to his plans when Dragon's interest in poor Chewy got Warren nervous.

It was quite entertaining to see how quickly everything went down hill for Warren after he took Chewy home. At the same time I loved seeing how he found allies in the people he least expected to come come to his rescue; I mean Chewy's rescue.
Overall we had fun reading this one but I felt like the middle got a little too chaotic for my daughter and she lost interest for a bit. I blamed it on Dragon. He was just being too much at some point.
Seriously though, this a chapter book series worth introducing to your little ones. I wonder what kind of trouble Dragon will get Warren into next time.
