A Dragon’s Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans
This book is from the dragon’s point of view: Miss Drake. She is one thousand years old. Aunt Amelia (Fluffy) dies and leaves her house to Winnie and her mom. The dragon thinks the girl is her pet. When the dragon cries, her tears turn into jewels, but the dragon almost never cries. The dragon is serious. Winnie is mostly happy, but she misses her daddy. Winnie likes to draw. Miss Drake buys her a notebook. She doesn’t think there is anything special about the notebook, but there is. The notebook is magical and makes drawings come alive. Miss Drake and Winnie have to catch them and put them back in the book, or San Francisco will be destroyed. Will they find them in time? Read the book to find out.
I loved this book! My favorite magical creature was the lavender lemur (he likes to steal stuff and eat raisins.) I learned about a lot of new magical creatures. I looked up pictures of them. The dragon was my favorite character. She isn’t so grumpy. I loved the pictures at the beginning of each chapter. I’ll read this book again, and again, and again, and again!
