I only have so much to work from my memory but here it goes:

The story was about a normal child that was pulled into a fictional world where Wyverns stalked the land. The protagonist (a youngish boy I believe) comes into contact with a dragon that is not full grown. Over the course of the series the dragon grows as they quest throughout the land.

The series would have been around in the early 1990s.

I also seem to think that the titles had common "punnish" titles but am unsure on that point.

I have tried to find these books for years as they were an entry point for me into fantasy literature and were a staple of my childhood library forays.

I do recall an additional detail from the first book. They are in a village or town and it is dark during one scene in which they have to remain inside for fear the wyverns will locate and burn them. The wyverns are like smaller dragons with the ability to breathe fire.

  • Might this be the same story I asked about here? scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/157790/… – Buzz May 1 '18 at 20:48
  • There seem to be similar elements but I don't think the dragon was taunted in this way. He was small (a baby?) at first and the main antagonists of the realm were Wyverns. The people were under oppression from these creatures. – VerasVitas May 1 '18 at 20:58
  • Punnish titles immediately made me think of the Xanth series by Piers Anthony. A dragon features in several of them; he is full-grown to start with, but regressed to a baby after drinking Youth Elixir. – sueelleker Jun 16 '18 at 7:06
  • I am familiar with the Xanth series (amazing) and this is not one of Piers' stories. There are certainly some similarities! One more note (which I'm adding in to my question) is that in the first book they are in a village or town and it is dark during one scene in which they have to remain inside for fear the wyverns will locate and burn them. The wyverns are like smaller dragons with the ability to breathe fire. – VerasVitas Jun 18 '18 at 20:25
  • Similar to @sueelleker, baby dragon and pun titles also reminds me of Robert Asprin's MythAdventures, but I don't recall any wyverns as major antagonists in those. – eshier Jun 18 '18 at 20:33
