Along the way, she recruits Prince Happenstance and a Lucky Leprechaun who help Nickerbacher achieve his dream of becoming an stand-up comedian. After a few twists and over coming obstacles, Nickerbacher makes it on The Late Knight Show staring Johnny Kingston.

The Message of Nickerbacher

Nickerbacher is a dragon with a dream. While all the other dragons in his family have grown up to guard princesses and travel with wizards, Nickerbacher has other aspirations. He wants to be a stand-up comedian. Papa Dragon isn't too crazy about this idea and tells him so. After reading about Nickerbacher, children ages five to eight will learn the value of being themselves while still respecting their parents. The book comes in traditional format, as an eBook and as a downloadable application.

The job of every child is to learn who he or she is and gradually move away from the protection and guidance of parents. At the same time, all children need the love and approval of their parents. This heartwarming story shows how Nickerbacher and his papa gradually learned to see the other person's point of view. Reading the story of Nickerbacher will show children the importance of asking for support from the people they love.

Children Returning to the Love of Reading

Todays children are busier than ever. They spend all day at school and some are part of an extended school day due to their parent's work schedules. When they're not at school, they are involved in sports, church and other activities that leave them very little down time. It's no wonder that few children today take the time to read for pleasure. In order to make that happen, books must be compelling with strong characters that kids can relate to.

Nickerbacher loves to make the other people laugh. In fact, he enjoys it so much that he wants to make a career out of being a comedian. He practices his acts on Princess Gwendolyn with great success. She roars at his antics, especially his imitation of his papa. Laughter is music to Nickerbacher's ears and he continuously challenges himself to create funny material. The young readers of Nickerbacher, the Funniest Dragon will laugh right along with him.

Nickerbacher and his father have a close relationship, but they are trapped in a parent-child conflict. Papa Dragon wants his son to have a traditional job while Nickerbacher desires to follow his heart. Their love grows even stronger by the end of the story because they learn to truly understand a viewpoint different from their own.
