The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm
The novel starts with a tired, overworked Eragon being chastised by Saphira, his dragon, for not taking time to enjoy himself and have fun any more. She pushes him to leave his desk behind and go out and lose himself in the company and stories of others. The book is captivating, with different morals: never judge a book by its cover, give people a second chance, fight for what you believe in, and stand together with the people who need you most.
