Jack makes a castle for himself and his friends and they spend the day fighting dragons and other beasts. Then night comes and, slowly, one by one, the friends go home to bed. Jack tries to be brave and stay the night, but soon his parents come and carry him off to bed. Beautiful illustrations and rhyming text make for a lovely story. "Jack, Zack, and Caspar were making a den--- a mighty great fort for King Jack and his men.... 'Prepare to do battle, brave knights!' cried King Jack. 'Protect your king's castle from dragon attack!'"

 The book "King jack and the dragon" is a story that revolves around three little boys who like to play pretend as knights fighting dragons. The story is told from the perspective of a little child and it has its own unique literary style to it. For example, they call the parents "giants" when they come and take away the children for bed. Also when King Jacks parents come to get him he didn't understand that it was his parents further showing the child like perspective of the book. It uses a poetic style to tell the story like rhyming sticks with bricks, and Jack with attack. This story has three children of different ages and of different races, and is a great book to foster creativity.
