All the dragons in the forest of Nogard like nothing better than raiding Castle Dark and carrying off princesses to eat - all the dragons, that is, except one. Herb is at his happiest tending his vegetable patch, for Herb is a vegetarian. So it is unfortunate that he is the one captured by the castle's knights in armor. Treacherous Meathook and his dragon cronies will only help Herb if he agrees to eat meat - will he give in to their blackmail. Jules Bass's lighthearted story combines with Debbie Harter's jaunty illustrations to make this a hilarious picture book that also offers young readers plenty of food for thought.

Review: Herb, the Vegetarian Dragon

User Review  - Sarah - Goodreads

Malcolm says, "I really liked it because I really like dragons, and I really like executioners. My favorite part was when he was locked in the cell. My favorite character is Meathook because he eats meat and I like meat. And that's all I want to say. Next interview please." Read full review
