The Sunflower Sword
Tyler and Luke recently took out a new book from the library called The Sunflower Sword, and we have all fallen in love with it. At the moment, we read it before bed at night and sometimes multiple times a day. It is the story of a boy who wants to be a knight, but his mother will not let him have a sword. Instead she gives him a sunflower, which he moans about a bit but then finds that it "whooshes and swooshes" nicely. He has fun with this sunflower sword and pretends to slay all the dragons with it.
It turns out the dragon is not so mean after all and they become dear friends. Then (and this is the best part) ALL the knights in the land hear about this and learn that an enemy can become a friend. So, they all come to the same spot and give up their swords to become friends with the dragons.
