The teacher read this book to the class today, and I am astounded. The tale takes a Biblical turn toward genius when the snake in the grass tempts Dragon with the 'forbidden' fruit of friendship. Later, when Dragon questions the apple core about if it is okay, sick, or dead, I almost cried. Dragon is questioning his faith in the world and he receives no answer from a silent God. This might be Pilkey making an homage to the films of Ingmar Bergman. Dragon (inadvertently?) adds a Nietzschean dimension to his tragic situation when he questions if the 'apple'-- or God-- is dead. Factoring in the notes of regrowth and repetition at the end of the tale, I must conclude that this is Pilkey's masterpiece: a brilliant allegory regarding the Sisyphean struggles of mankind.

Imagine your life with someone who listens, shares, and will take you to the doctor when you need special care. That is what dragon does for his friend the apple. In return, apple gives dragon his attention, his shade, and shares his offspring. I love the Dragon series and share them with my students. I wish I could get more copies, but alas, they are going out of print.
