    My little girl loves these stories. They’re right on her level with the simple plot, the scary but ineffectual bad guys, and Miss Alodie who always gives them just the right magical object to save the day. If I think they’re a bit obvious and silly in places, I won’t mention it. They’re a great introduction to fantasy for a child that’s reading early, or for a (somewhat long) read aloud for the five to eight year old age range.

    The title of this book was interesting and something I thought would be fun to read. And then as things go I found out it is actually a part of a series while not even the first book although, unlike many other instances, at least I have seen this particular first book. Although I have liked dragons that first book never really seemed to perk my interest. Once I started reading this book, though, I found that my interest past the titular concept wasn't in this book. The Dragon In the Library co The title of this book was interesting and something I thought would be fun to read. And then as things go I found out it is actually a part of a series while not even the first book although, unlike many other instances, at least I have seen this particular first book. Although I have liked dragons that first book never really seemed to perk my interest. Once I started reading this book, though, I found that my interest past the titular concept wasn't in this book. The Dragon In the Library could read as a standalone but I wouldn't recommend it as much. So many of the main concepts for dragon keeping are missing for those who are just picking up the series while although the book does reflect on many numerous events previously mentioned in the series it doesn't delve deep enough to help flesh out the book for those new to the series. At the same time there is very small character development of the prominent characters including Emmy the dragonlet. Furthermore they all really lack any emotional depth while the emotions that do appear are very superficial and don't contribute to the actual plot or the personalities of the characters for it is just basics like grumpiness, bossiness, etc. And even scenes that demand such emotional depths like a tearful reunion or desperate treachery just didn't really wring any emotional response in me with their lackluster telling. Following the above complaints the writing itself was also dull and rather undramatic even in the parts where it should have captured the imagination. Kate Klimo also ends up proving that she cannot for her life come up with any other better word substitutions since her favorite word throughout the book was "said". As an example on one two-page spread that same word was used fifteen times. At other times the book was a bit too juvenile with all the butt references and nicey-nices demanded of such a proud beast as dragons are known to be. The book does have a few grayscale illustrations at the beginning of each chapter. The humans of course were realistic while the dragon is one of the weirdest portrayals that I have ever seen of any draconic characters. But then again what can be expected from a telling of a story where the most likely disguise for a dragon is the shape and behavior of a dog, which clashes against all things dragon. All in all for me there are a lot better dragon series even for young adults who are just getting into chapter books and want a good fantasy series with dragons as main characters. As a suggestion I would suggest thus steering clear of these particular books.

    Though alright for very young readers, the book is not so remarkable as every adversity is always solved - mainly by overpowered dragon magic, overused coincidences, with some help of a woman down the road that seems to know everything for some reason. The villains are rather childish throwing hissy fits when things don’t go their way.

    This is a fun series, especially for dragon & fantasy fans! I would recommend reading them in order, however. (Library)

    Unpredictable with some exciting twists and turns! Klimo's world is soft, delightful, and inventive. I love Emmy the dragon and the two protagonists, and the evildoers are always unique in some way. Unpredictable with some exciting twists and turns! Klimo's world is soft, delightful, and inventive.

We discovered this series by chance during a library visit and my oldest is enthralled. She read the first two book almost nonstop until she finished them. Now that we're almost done with the four-book series, we really hope that more will be published soon! I found the book to be a quick, entertaining read. It's a great series to introduce children into the sci-fi/fantasy genre and has some suspense and adventure without being too scary or weird. Jesse and Daisy, the main characters, are ten-year-old cousins. This preteen, sibling-like pair are brave and love to explore and they remind me of Jack and Annie from The Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne. I liked the literary references. We read The Phantom Tollbooth not too long ago and perhaps in honor of Maurice Sendak, we will read Higglety Pigglety Pop!: Or There Must Be More to Life soon. I don't believe I've read any books by E. Nesbit before, but I will add Five Children and It to my to-read list. And we've read a couple of the books in the Chet Gecko Mystery series by Bruce Hale, but I think it's time to check out another. I loved their visits to the libraries (both human and elf-run.) The sleepover was a fantastic concept (our local library invited our girls to leave their stuffed animals at the library for a 'sleep over' and got a slew of digital photos of them having fun and reading different books, but that's as close as they've ever gotten to something like that. I think it would be wonderful to participate in a library sleepover someday. And the magical Scriptorium is a wonderful concept. I wish I could see something like that! Overall, we really enjoyed these books and I can certainly see this series continuing past the first four books that have been published so far. Our oldest has raved so much about the series that our youngest is now wanting to read The Dragon in the Sock Drawer. new word: sarsen

    THIS SERIES IS AWESOME! Every book in the Dragon Keepers series that I read, I find myself to be enjoying it more and more. And as usual, I had many good laughs and giggles. The story is a lot darker compared to the last 2 books in the series, and I loved it! We also get a new villain too, and I liked her a lot. St. George's girlfriend? Heck yeah. I loved Emmy's development in this book too! She's growing more and more into a dragon! That's another thing that I like about this series, is watching THIS SERIES IS AWESOME!

    This was a really cute book. I remember reading and enjoying the first one. I think I enjoyed the first one more though. I thought it was a little too unrealistic that they would have a fledgling dragon. I think it would have been cooler if they had meet another Dragon and their Keepers (around the same age, of course) and THEY had a fledgling dragon and rubbed it in their faces and they defended their dragon or something...

    Although this was a good read and flowed well, I felt that it mostly ignored the true story, which was the missing Professor. His return appearance was, in opinion, serendipitous. However, this is still a pleasant little story. Cute, funny, and entertaining children's story.

    This is a perfect middle grade series. A book that even parents will love to read to their children at bed time. Perfect for boys or girls. I just love the magic in this and the events are so intriguing even for adults.
