DragonFest (Part 4)

You didn't think I was done, did you?

Nope. There are always more dragons!  (Even when there aren't any in a specific book, if you get my meaning.)>
No dragons in this, you know.
Today, we are going to look at a couple of my favorite middle grade dragons:

A new favorite!!
I adore this book, THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON by Kelly Barnhill. There is a Perfectly Tiny Dragon named Fyrian who stole my heart. Highly recommend--just an incredibly readable book.! It does not lend itself well to being put down for a moment, though. It really likes it best when you just keep reading it for HOURS and HOURS. The language is lush and gorgeous. (Yes, it made me feel like a hack when I read it, but I couldn't even be angry at it because DRAGON!)

Also, I love this one:
I heart you, Grace Lin
Dragon in WHERE THE MOUNTAIN MEETS THE MOON is one of my favorite middle grade characters of all time. (He is up there with Ivan, in case you were wondering!) He's kind and brave...just the kind of dragon I'd like to meet someday.


So, if you are in the mood for a novel with a dragon sitting right there in the front seat of the story, please take a look at THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON and WHERE THE MOUNTAIN MEETS THE MOON.

(But if you are looking for dragons, don't look in here>
because you won't find one.

Hi, Shelley! I have finally reentered the blogging world and had to pop over to say hello.
My daughter LOVES dragons--is obsessed with them. I will need to catch up on these dragonfest posts. :)
