Tired of being teased about his name and his stutter, twelve-year-old Hobart sets out to do a few heroic deeds and earn a place in Knight School. But the local damsels he hopes to save assure him that the last thing they need is rescuing. The runaway bull he tries to catch wears him like a hat. And don't even ask about the ogre.
Finally, in desperation, Hobart sets out on the most daring quest he can think of--he will slay a dragon. Or that's his plan anyway.
The Legend of Hobart is a hilarious, heart-felt adventure, for the would-be hero in all of us.

martial arts and assured me that the last thing they needed was rescuing.Saving a baby from a fire would have been perfect, but the housewives in Finnagen are
far too careful. We haven’t had a decent kitchen fire in years. Last
spring, when a bull broke out of its pasture, I thought I had found my chance.
But when I caught up with the bull, the stupid animal managed to hook his horns
through my belt and flip me up onto his head. William the Tormentor already
called me Ho-brat instead of Hobart. After that day, he started calling me Ho-brat Bull Hat. To not be called Ho-brat for the rest of my life, I needed to become a knight. To get into the King’s School for the
Education of Future Knights, I had to become a hero before May Day of my
twelfth year. It was already early spring.I was running out of time and ideas when I heard the news: a local maiden had been
kidnapped by an ogre. Ogres don’t usually come this far east. And their hides
are so thick that martial arts are useless against them. This was a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I didn’t own any real weapons, so I took the pitchfork I used to clean out the
pigpens and set out to face my first ogre.
Heather Mullaly is a passionate believer in the power
of story. When she isn’t writing them, reading them, or listening to them, she
can usually be found baking something that involves chocolate, thinking up new
story ideas before she’s finished the two she’s currently writing, or hanging
out with her family, who happen to be even more fantastic than the characters
in her head. She lives in Virginia with her husband and their three teenagers.Author links:– Website: http://www.heathermullaly.com– Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/106508034343528– Bookbub: https://www.bookbub.com/authors/heather-mullaly– Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Heather-Mullaly/e/B091MCSFY2
