Dragon and Captain appears to be a children's picturebook at first glance, but the story inside is told entirely in graphic novel format. Two young boys engage in imaginative play; one thinks of himself as a blue dragon, the other as an intrepid ship's captain. Together, they embark on an adventure to win back the captain's seaworthy vessel from thieving pirates! The colorful, cartoony art almost jumps off the page, in this high-spirited adventure sure to spark a smile.
