Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
Jesse and Daisy are children who have been entrusted as the Keepers of Emmy, a magical dragon. It is Christmastime and although Jesse and Daisy no longer believe in Santa, Emmy is convinced that he is real. Emmy runs off to find Santa and Jesse and Daisy chase after her. The children are astonished when they find Emmy at the North Pole, visiting with Santa and his elves. Jesse is amazed even more when he notices that Santa is dirty and greedy and that all of the elves stink. Even worse, Santa offers Jesse and Daisy toys in exchange for becoming the new Keeper of Emmy. Is this strange and unsavory man really Santa? If he is not Santa then who is he and why does he want a magical dragon? The mystery deepens as the children learn more about a legendary dragon slayer named Beowulf. Could Beowulf still be alive and masquerading as Santa? This interesting and suspenseful fantasy will keep readers on the edge of their seat as Jesse and Daisy uncover clues to find the truth. There is a single black-and-white illustration at the beginning of each chapter. This is book six in the "Dragon Keepers" series. Reviewer: Denise Daley
From the Publisher
"Filled with magic, mythology and mystery, this creative story will enchant longtime fans of the series as well as newcomers. Emmy’s combination of sass and childlike behavior will resonate with young readers heading toward their preteen years." Kirkus Reviews

Meet the Author

Kate Klimo has always believed that Santa Claus is the ultimate and, for many of us, the very first fantasy hero in our lives. When she was a child, she always stayed up late the night before Christmas to see if she could hear the ringing of sleigh bells or the rumble of reindeer's hooves on the roof. To this day, she thinks there is something about Christmas that's just a little bit more magical than any other day of the year.

Kate lives in New Paltz, New York, with her husband and horses. For more information, visit FoundaDragon.org and TheDragonKeepers.com.

My son read this series when he was about 8. He is now 10 and asked if there were anymore of these books. I was happy to find that there were in fact two more for him to read. He loved this series.

No Christmas Magic Here... Childhood Magic Destruction for Believers Alarmed at reading this as a bedtime story and seeing the get main characters Jesse & Daisy saying that there's no Santa or Tooth Fairy, I came to find some more descriptive reviews of this book. It gets worse from the two chapters we've read! This is NOT a sweet Christmasy tale for kids. They travel to the North Pole and do then meet "Santa & elves" -- who are dirty, greedy and enjoy eating endangered animals for dinner! Turns out Santa is really a bad guy in disguise. A major disappointment for the kids who have enjoyed reading this series. Poorly done, Kate Klimo, so I send a "bah, humbug" to you... you should be ashamed of putting yourself in the category of authors who try to destroy magic... stick to creating it!
