Grosset & Dunlap 1977-2004
A travelling minstrel tells Wiglaf that he was born to be a hero. "Dragon slayers are heroes," thinks Wiglaf, so he sets off for Dragon Slayers Academy with his pig Daisy, determined to learn to be a dragon slayer. There’s just one little problem with this plan -- Wiglaf can’t stand the sight of blood.
It’s here – four complete Dragon Slayers’ Academy adventures in one book!
The Early Adventures stories tell how Wiglaf and his many brothers grew up outside the village of Pinwick, how he came to DSA and why he brought his beloved pig, Daisy, with him. They tell how the Wizard Zelnco gave Wiglaf his magical sword and put a speech spell on Daisy so that she speaks Pig-Latin. The Early Adventures tell how Wilglaf met Erica and Angus and how the three of them became a force to be reckoned with at Dragon Slayers’ Academy.
DSA has been translated into 24 different languages. Can you tell which are shown here?
