Seven-year-old Warren's best friend is his stuffed dragon, who talks, demands food, and reassures absent-minded Warren about his fears and anxieties. When Warren's family moves, he and his twin sister compete at making friends (100). At their new school, Warren is chosen to care for the class pet hamster, Chewy (Weekend). Fast-paced dialogue and cartoon-style grayscale illustrations add levity to these entertaining tales.
Kirkus Reviews
In this series debut, a boy learns that when it comes to friends, quality is more important than quantity.Warren Reginald Nesbitt is moving and will be starting second grade at a new school. The 7-year-old is lucky he has his pet, Dragon, a plush toy who's real only to him, to help him adjust. Then his outgoing twin sister, Ellie, dares him to make 100 friends before she does. Shy Warren accepts the challenge: "I'm going to make more new friends than you." But inside, he thinks, in his endearingly honest first-person narration, "I do not say I might not believe what I just said." Marshmallow-loving Dragon offers Warren friend-making advice: Give a compliment. "You do not smell like rotten pumpkins," Warren says to classmate Alison. Making new friends may take a while, but it will be worth it. In Book 2, Weekend with Chewy, Warren takes the class hamster home for two days. In addition to performing general pet care, Warren must write a report and keep Chewy safe from mischievous Dragon's boundless appetite. How will he find the time to build a secret snack-smuggling ramp with his friend Michael? In both the black-and-white artwork and, notably, the text, Warren, his family, and Alison are white; Michael's two-mom family is black.Adorable fun for chapter-book newbies looking for a few giggles.

With Calvin and Hobbes appeal, a boy and his "pet" dragon take on a new school and attempt to make 100 friends!

Warren is a seven-year-old boy. Dragon is a 122-year-old dragon. Not that most people believe that. Most people are sure that Dragon is a stuffed animal. People such as Warren's twin sister, Ellie, who challenges Warren to a contest at their new school: making 100 new friends. Warren isn't so good at making friends, but he doesn't like losing to Ellie, and Dragon will help him. But the first day of school doesn't exactly turn out the way he'd hoped, and even worse, Dragon disappears! By the time Warren gets home, he's not only not made any friends, he's lost his best friend.
First day of school jitters are entertainingly explored in this laugh-out-loud chapter book.
