Henry Heckelbeck Gets a Dragon (Paperback)
Heidi Heckelbeck’s younger brother Henry finds his own magical Book of Spells in this first Henry Heckelbeck adventure!
Henry Heckelbeck is just like any other normal kid. He plays soccer. He isn’t a huge fan of homework. He even has an older sister, Heidi.
What’s not so normal about Henry is his family. His sister and mom are magic.
Not Henry, though…he’s just a normal kid. Or is he?
Henry Heckelbeck is starting a new year of school. He has a new teacher, makes new friends, and discovers that he has some magical powers of his own thanks to a Book of Spells he finds in his bedroom. But magic can be tricky and when Henry accidentally brings his toy dragon to life, his days of being a normal kid are over.
With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Henry Heckelbeck chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.
