Dragon Slayers’ Academy Series : Titles in Order

Book 20
It’s Graduation Day at DSA!

Fans have been requesting another DSA book for years. And here it is! While money-hungry headmaster Mordred is busy planning DSA’s conversion into a deluxe casino, Wiglaf and his friends are on a mission to find their dragon buddy Worm. Unsuccessful in their quest, the group returns to see the school set up for a surprise graduation. Will Worm reunite with his friends before the doors close? And what comes next for the young knights in training? Find out in the much anticipated finale to McMullan’s hilarious fantasy series.
Book 19
Something BIG is going on in the woods near DSA! Wiglaf and his friends are on a rescue mission to save Worm, the dragon they’ve raised since he hatched. They thought that a gang of knights-in- training was the problem, but it turns out that it’s a little girl GIANT! The DSA kids can’t let Worm become her house pet. But how can they free him?
Book 18
After spending the summer at spooky Camp Dragononka, Wiglaf and his pals are back at DSA. They’re no longer the youngest lads and lasses—now they’re in Class II, and they are expected to show new students the ropes. Wiglaf not only has to put up with his wild and crazy little brother Dudwin, but also with his Class I “Little Buddy, who turns out to be a not-so-little troll! Wiglaf wants to be a good “Big Buddy” but it’s not easy when the troll is always playing jokes on him. And what about the fire-breathing dragon that the troll swears is in the woods outside DSA? Is it really there? Or is this just another one of the troll’s great big fibs?
Book 17
It’s the last day of the school year, so it must be time for Wiglaf and all his friends at Dragon Slayers’ Academy to go home and enjoy the lazy hazy days of a medieval summer. Ummm, not quite. Not when Mordred the gold-hungry headmaster realizes there’s money to be made running a camp. This double-sized summer super special packs in twice the fun for fans of DSA, and there’s a full-color 8-page insert that pulls out and includes a ghost story, jokes, and more. The Horn Book calls DSA “a hilarious and deservedly popular magic-propelled series set in the Middle Ages.
Book 16
Sir Mort engineers a class trip to a home for “olde” knights. But when the lads and lasses arrive, they discover that Sir Lancelot has decided he’s had enough of hacking and whacking and is ready for retirement himself. Find out how Erica (his most fervent admirer), Wiglaf, and the rest of the gang get Lancelot back in action, battling the feared Grizzlegore, the world’s oldest living dragon.
Book 15
Wiglaf ’s latest assignment for the DSA school paper is to write an in-depth article about the headmaster: Who is the real Mordred de Marvelous? Wiglaf, with help from his buddy Angus, decides the best way to learn all about the headmaster is to follow him around school for a day. But when the boys overhear Mordred and his scout, Yorick, whispering about “twins,” “kidnapped!” and “gold,” they decide to investigate and end up getting much, MUCH more than a newspaper story.
Book 14
When Mordred announces a three-day weekend for DSA, Wiglaf and his friends (including his Pig Latin–speaking pig, Daisy) are off to Erica’s castle. But when they arrive, they discover that Erica’s father, King Ken, has come down with a horrible case of liver pox. The wizard Zelnoc manages to cure the king’s pox, but as with all the wizard’s spells, there’s a magical mishap. Now, King Ken can only speak in Pig Latin! Can Zelnoc fix his mistake, or is there a better chance that pigs will fly?
Book 13
Things couldn’t be better for the greedy headmaster of DSA. Lasses are lining up to enroll in his school, and more students means more gold! But when The Medieval Times headline announces that the Bad Luck Dragon is on its way to DSA, Mordred orders his students to hunt for every good luck charm ever invented. But can a bunch of phony 4-leaf clovers help Wiglaf and his friends defeat the dragon Snagglefahng?…or will their luck run out?
Book 12
What are those strange noises coming from the dungeon at DSA? Wiglaf and his stalwart cohorts Angus and Erica decide to investigate and inadvertently free the long-imprisoned ghost of the school founder—Sir Herbert Dungeonstone. Overjoyed to be on the loose again, Sir Herbert wreaks havoc, threatening to spoil the greedy headmaster’s plan to turn DSA coed.
Book 11
When Wiglaf and his pals from Dragon Slayers’ Academy meet up with the wizard Zelnoc, all they ask is for a little magic to help them get through the Dark Forest fast.  But unfortunately, Zelnoc’s spells always end with an “Oops! Sorry about that!”  So, yes, the boys are able to travel much faster now…but that’s because they have wings, can fly, and have been turned into dragons!  And they become the newest students at Dragon Slackers’ Academy, a school that teaches knight-slaying!  This funny turnabout in which the kids from DSA suddenly see life from a dragon’s point of view makes a wonderful addition to this popular series!
Book 10
It’s visiting day at Dragon Slayers’ Academy and Wiglaf’s entire family is coming!  Will Wiglaf be able to survive the day with his wacky parents and crude older brothers and come out of it without becoming the laughingstock of the entire school?  Hot on the heels of book #9, here’s another all-new story starring everyone’s favorite dragon-slayer-in-training.
Book 9
Wiglaf’s supposed to be a dragon slayer, but he’s more like a dragon babysitter when he finds a baby dragon and decides to keep it! Back in his first new adventure in four years, Wiglaf is as funny and appealing as ever. In keeping with the reissue of the original books in the series, the ninth book is 112 pages long and includes a hilarious bonus yearbook section that will have kids laughing out loud.
Book 8
It’s the year 999 and the end of the world is coming-at least according to a mysterious prophecy.  But then Wiglaf meets a strange boy who claims to have come from the future.  It’s Zack, star of the best-selling The Zack FilesTM series by Dan Greenburg, and he says he’s living proof that there is life after the year 1000!
Book 7
Wiglaf, Erica, and Angus are representing DSA in the All-Schools-Brain-Power Tournament!  But what on Earth are they going to do about their know-it-all captain Bragwort?  And how can they even stand a chance against the snobbish Knights Noble Conservatory team?
Book 6
The evil witch Morgana le Fay has put a terrible curse on Sir Lancelot, and it’s up to Wiglaf and his DSA buddies to find and save him. But they’re just dragon-slayers-in-training. Can they really outsmart the trolls, witches, and other villains that stand in their way?
