From Publishers Weekly:

In the first title of this new series, A Friend for Dragon, a snake plays a joke on gentle Dragon that is carried too far. Tricked into believing that an apple is his new friend, Dragon is brokenhearted when a hungry walrus eats it. He buries the apple core, and eventually the seeds sprout and grow into a tree that bears a new apple. Dragon Gets By is a lighter, comical tale in which the beguiling blue creature wakes up groggy and does everything wrong. "First he read an egg and fried the morning newspaper." He sweeps his dirt floor so diligently that he accidentally digs himself a basement, then he has a zany adventure at the grocery store. Children will laugh at Dragon's antics while enjoying Pilkey's ( 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving ) bright, inviting illustrations. Each episode constitutes a chapter; beginning readers will take pride in being able to read a chapter book independently. With his excellent vocabulary choices and crafty characterizations--small squiggles carry large meanings--Pilkey has created a positively precious prehistoric prototype. Ages 6-8.
