THE WOULD-BE WANNA-BE DRAGON
Panzil, The Would-Be Wanna-Be Dragon is the first book in a forthcoming series. This first story is about overcoming fears and doubts, about being true to oneself, and about discovering one’s authentic identity.
Ten-year-old Panzil is intent on shedding the aggressive, horrific traits long identified with dragons. Rather than scaring and harming people, Panzil only wants to do good. He wants to improve the world—not destroy it. Unsure of how to re-configure his destructive dragon powers, Panzil seeks the advice of a wise old dragon, Dr. Warlocka. From him, Panzil learns how to turn these fierce powers into instruments for good, thus assuring a benign place for himself, and ultimately achieving heroic status.
In subsequent books Panzil discovers ways to fight climate change and to halt the extinction facing many of earth’s animals.
