Overview

What do you do when your dragon becomes a 'tween? Worry! And that's exactly what Dragon Keepers Jesse and Daisy do when their dragon, Emmy, outgrows their garage and starts disappearing. Luckily, when she really disappears, she also leaves them a trail of socks, which leads them headlong into a . . . volcano? Yep! And it only gets crazier from there! In this fourth title, author Kate Klimo introduces readers to a whole new world—the Fiery Realm, where dragons can be felled by a squirt of water and fire fairies have started mysteriously disappearing. As always, readers get a full dose of action and imagination in this expanding tale of two kids and a dragon, growing up together. A great boy-girl adventure for readers of How to Train Your Dragon!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Paula Rohrlick
In this fourth entry in the imaginative "Dragon Keepers" series, Emmy the dragon is growing up and venturing out to explore the world. The trail of socks she leaves behind leads her young Keepers, Jesse and Daisy, to the Fiery Realm, a place where dragons rule, fire fairies scamper about, and gemstones sparkle everywhere. Emmy is enchanted with this new land, and particularly enchanted with one of the dragons there, Jasper. But danger lurks, as Jasper's jealous girlfriend resents Emmy's presence and fire fairies start to mysteriously disappear. Emmy, Jesse and Daisy's old enemies, St. George and Sadra, are back and making trouble, and a battle ensues. Fans of the series will want this latest installment, which is illustrated with black and white drawings at the beginning of each chapter and features an exciting, full-color cover that will draw in fantasy fans. Humor and suspense are woven into the plot, along with magic, though it certainly helps to have read the previous installments. Note that the vocabulary here can be demanding, with words like "carbuncle" and "depredations," so this is not a tale for emerging readers. Reviewer: Paula Rohrlick

Meet the Author

Kate Klimo grew up in the little town of Sea Cliff, with the Stenson Memorial Library just down the street from her house. She got her first wallet when she was eight, not for money but to hold her library card. She can still remember exactly where on the shelves her favorite books of fantasy sat. In Middletown, New York, where she and her husband Harry raised their three sons, the library is housed in a wonderful old railway station—and from there, she and her family have taken many memorable trips.
