A Good Knight's Rest by Shelley Moore Thomas

The Good Knight needs a vacation. (You would too if you had "saved three princesses from peril...helped two old gypsies across the moat...and helped one little cat get down from a tall tree.") The Knight packs up his wagon ready to head away for a few days of relaxation and goes to tell his dragon friends. HIs friends decide they want to go as well. Being a good knight, the Good Knight agrees to take his dragon friends on the trip but it is not long before the group has to stop. Just as the Good Knight gets comfortable, the dragons decide it is time to move on. As this continues to happen, the dragons realize how tired their friend really is and takes him to a truly relaxing. Kids will enjoy the silly dragons and parents will relate to the Good Knight's quest to get away from the castle without having to stop over and over :)
