Mighty Reader and the Reading Riddle (Mighty Reader #3)

When pup Inky can’t find the right book to read, super dog Mighty Reader comes to the rescue! He picks The Sword and the Bone and soon Inky and Mighty Reader are transported to a medieval world filled with castles and creatures of legend.

In this world they must pull a sword from a bone, outsmart a three-headed riddle-speaking dragon, and save Merlin from a dungeon. By the end, Inky has found his new favorite adventure book!

Lovable beagle Mighty Reader is a friend to new readers everywhere. By pairing bright, comic book-style artwork with classroom-approved reading strategies, Will Hillenbrand has created a reading superhero perfect for today’s youngsters.
