I bought this because my son proclaimed that not enough kid's books had dragons. So, I asked a million people and this is one book that came up again and again. So, I bought it for him to read.
Then he tells me that it sounds stupid and he doesn't want to read it. Fine. I read it and laughed a lot. When I was done, he said he wanted to read it and I reminded him he didn't want to. Yeah, now he does (yeah, sneaky, reverse psychology and all that).
Anyway, this is a really really cute children's book about Jeremy, who, well... finds and hatches a dragon's egg! So cute and has some funny parts as well. I think my son will be pleasantly surprised.
This was the first proper chapter book I read - I've wanted for so long to have it so my little sister and eventually brother can read it.
I'm really excited that I can share a childhood story (that made me cry!) with my siblings.
Interesting enough to hold this adult's attention. Gives you just enough silly dragon lore to keep you going. A little misogynistic (if that term can be given to a 12 year old girl who pesters a 12 year old boy)
