Elephant Joe, Brave Firefighter! by David Wojtowycz -- ADVISABLE
In this comic for young readers, it's Dragon's birthday. But the birthday surprise Elephant Joe has planned goes awry when the startled dragon flies into a tree -- and gets stuck there. Elephant Joe knows just what to do: turn into a firefighter to rescue Dragon. He'd better keep his costume close for the candle-blowing afterward, though, because as it turns out surprises aren't the only thing Dragons don't handle well.
This early reader is written in a very basic graphic novel format in order to engage children. The colors are vibrant, and there's plenty of action without any true peril.
