About the Book

Sterling and Nugget the Dragon

Sterling the Knight

We all have our dragons, but how we choose to face them is up to us. Sterling and Nugget the Dragon will encourage the knight in shining armor within any child by fostering growth in social and emotional development.

In a land far away, many fear a dragon named Nugget—including Sterling, a brave young boy, who dreams of becoming a knight. Sterling sets out to slay the dragon, until his quest presents him with a choice: fight or help. In choosing kindness and compassion, Sterling becomes a true knight.

As the first story in Judd B. Shaw’s Sterling the Knight series of medieval adventures, Sterling and Nugget the Dragon teaches how kindness is mightier than the sword.
