Staff Reviews


Follow along as a silver dragon named Firedrake teams up with a human boy and a brownie as they travel across the world to save the dragon species. I positively adored this book as a kid and it was one of the first serious chapter books I ever read! Very simple and enchanting, this heartwarming classic captured my little 6-year-old heart and I proceeded to read it at least once a year! I couldn’t recommend this book enough for kids just beginning to broaden their reading horizons and pick up bigger books.
