Peanut Goes to School: A Short Story of the Elder Races Kindle Edition
Dragos Cuelebre is no longer the only dragon.
Dragos’s son Liam Cuelebre (a.k.a. Peanut) is springing into existence, reminiscent of the first of the Elder Races who were born at the beginning of the world. At just six months of age, he has already grown to the size of a large five-year-old boy. He can read, write in complete sentences, and his math skills are off the chart.
A white dragon in his Wyr form, Liam also holds more Power than almost anyone else. In an effort to give him a taste of normality, no matter how fleeting, his parents Pia and Dragos enroll him in first grade.
They hope school will help teach Liam how to relate to others, a vital skill that will help him control his growing Power. But school has a surprising number of pitfalls, and relating to others can be a tricky business.
When a classmate is threatened, Liam must quickly learn self-control, how to rein in his instincts, and govern his temper, because there’s no doubt about it—he is fast becoming one of the most dangerous creatures in all of the Elder Races.
PEANUT GOES TO SCHOOL is part of a three-story series about Pia, Dragos, and Peanut. Each story stands alone, but fans might want to read all three: DRAGOS TAKES A HOLIDAY, PIA SAVES THE DAY, and PEANUT GOES TO SCHOOL.

The story focuses on six month old Liam Cuelebre whose growth and maturity are years ahead. Hoping to socialize their little ‘peanut’ with other children, Pia and Dragos send Liam off to school hoping that their tiny dragon reigns in his powers if something should go wrong-and go wrong they do.
PEANUT GOES TO SCHOOL is a sweet storyline told in close third person POV (Liam) that follows Liam’s first day in grade one. From school yard bullies to a terrifying teacher, Liam encounters his first taste of predator and prey-and no dragon will ever be considered –the prey. Although the storyline is part of the Elder Races series, the novella reds more like a middle grade story because it is written from a child’s perspective.
Thea Harrison novella trilogy follows one supernatural family –from the birth of their first child to the first day of school. Every parent worries about the future-the what ifs and whys-but most never have to worry about their six month old child shifting into a white dragon that breathes fire and fear into a classroom of first grade students. We get an up close and personal look at one father and son relationship that can be measured by the love and emotional bonding; and a mother whose natural instinct to protect overrides all sense of well-being.

It's a joy to read this series. The writing style is superb and make very enjoyable reading for adults too. Young kids can read this. So many issues for young kids can be addressed through the stories and written in such a way that was thought provoking and fun not only to kids but also to adults.
This one addressed bullying in it's two major forms.
Please make this a permanent long running series. Would be fab if they develop from novellas into full length novels following Peanut as he grows up. Please please please carry on writing about Peanut et al.
It's aimed at people who already know and love the Elder Races series, I guess if I hadn't read the previous books I'd have been a bit puzzled by it, so read those first.
Even though he is growing at a fast pace, he is also coming into his own and able to differentiate right from wrong. His first day at school is somewhat unusual but very interesting. The relationship in the family as a whole is exemplar.
I hope we get to see more of his story as he grows up. Well worth reading.
