Nickerbacher, The Funniest Dragon by Terry John Barto, Cymplified!

Nickerbacher, The Funniest Dragon had all the elements of a fairytale: a tower, a princess, a prince, and a dragon. The main character, however, was the dragon. Not just any dragon, but, a funny one. Who ever heard of a funny dragon, right? That’s what Nickerbacher’s father thought. Dragons were supposed to do their duty.

For a moment, I was transported into my younger self, struggling with the need to make my own choices versus the expectations of my parents. But, then, I returned to my present self, a parent, and saw the situation from the other side of the fence. Although the characters were fictional, the feelings were true. The hesitation, the disappointment, the determination, the relief, the love were present in the context of family dynamics.

True to being a comedian, Nickerbacher gave samples of actual jokes. Funny words were a challenge to write. I know because I have tried. That’s why it is laudable of the author, Terry John Barto, to write this book with a unique twist, even if the whole idea of having a dream is not that novel.

Boys will appreciate this because of the prince and the dragons, girls will appreciate this because of the princess, parents will appreciate this because of the encouraging theme.

Note: I received my copy compliments of the author himself, Mr. Terry John Barto with the help of Renee of Thank you so much!
