My daughter has been going through a dragon phase for the last two years--like most kids do. There's just something about dragons that captures the hearts and minds of middle grade readers. On our last trip to the library, my daughter left with a total of 11 different books, all about dragons.
She received and then devoured the Wings of Fire series for her birthday in June. She LOVED them! Write faster, Tui Sutherland.
Another favorite dragon story is the soon-to-be re-released series from Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell (authors of the Edge Chronicles), Wyrmeweald. My daughter could not put this one down, and I saw very little of my Kindle while she read it.
This is the series my daughter is currently reading and loving. Susan Fletcher is always a sure-fire hit!
No dragon post would be complete without Emily Rodda! She was my oldest son's VERY favorite when he was little and the reason he learned to love reading.
Dragonspell is the first book in the DragonKeeper Chronicles series. There are 5 total, and I was so disappointed when they ended. This is my favorite dragon series - no contest. Kale is a wonderful character, one you will fall in love with immediately. Her dragons are adorable. There are large dragons in this series, but Kale's are the size of kittens, and they each have magical properties and personalities.
These books can usually be found in the Christian fiction section of bookstores. They have an amazing storyline with a powerful overall message. But even better than that, THEY ARE AWESOME! Fun, playful, totally addictive!
There is no shortage of great dragon books out there, and eventually, most MG readers find them -- Dragonbreath, The Dragon in the Sock Drawer, Dragon Rider, Dragon Slippers, and we can't forget Project Mayhem's own Dawn Lairamore's, Ivy's Ever After . . . What is your favorite MG dragon story/series?
