This book is one excellent read.
Rumor has it there is a dragon on the hill so Kenny sets off to find it*. What he gets is a distinguished, non-threatening creature who quickly becomes his best friend. (Because who doesn't want to be friends with a dragon, am I right?) But there's a problem. The townsfolk believe they are in danger. The king brings the best knight out of retirement to take care of the problem. Will Kenny be able to save the dragon? Will the townsfolk realize the error of their beliefs?

*With his parent's support, no less, because in this book parents value fostering independence and exploration in their kids regardless of risk, unlike our society today. Tsk, tsk, current society.
