Children Ages 8+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Book 1 of the Dragon Keeper series will have great appeal for the Magic Treehouse crowd. Walter Mayes conveys this charming fantasy with the gleeful enthusiasm of two kids getting a puppy, only in this case it’s a baby dragon. Cousins Jesse and Daisy find what they think is a geode while rock hounding one day, only to find that it can’t be cracked open and it seems to be talking to them. Mayes makes these two into kids listeners will cheer for by giving them upbeat personalities and an “up and at ‘em” perseverance. He manages to impart a vulnerability to the loud and bossy new dragon that will keep listeners’ sympathy while making them laugh. Children will find much to be satisfied with here.
