  GORK, THE TEEN DRAGON
Another book getting an adaptation, but a TV series one, is  Gabe Hudson's GORK, THE TEENAGE DRAGON which follows Gork, a lovable dragon at WarWings Military Academy, who has a gigantic heart, two inch horns and an occasional problem with fainting. He’s about to embark on
The book was released June last year
the most important mission of his life: on the eve of his high school graduation, he must ask a female dragon to be his queen. If she accepts, they’ll go off to conquer a foreign planet together. If she says no, Gork becomes a slave. Gork encounters an unforgettable cast of friends and foes in his quest to find a mate, including Dr. Terrible, the mad scientist; Fribby, a robot dragon obsessed with death; and Metheldra, a healer specializing in acupuncture with swords. But it is Gork’s biggest perceived weakness, his huge heart, which will guide him through his epic quest and help him reach his ultimate destination: planet Earth.

  1. I think both of these sound like something Allison and her friends would like, especially the Ology series.

    1. Ology series is something I'd like to have in books myself, they look very joyful, sadly they were translated very badly here in my country.

    2. The kids are all about the supernatural elements in television these days. Riverdale, Stranger Things, American Horror Story, Supernatural. If they fall along the lines of those, then I'm sure the Ology series is going to be a smash with the teen set.

    3. Should be fun unless it falls apart like Universals Classic Monsters which died with the flop of Cruise's Mummy.
