Written from the perspective of a dragon, this fantasy adventure introduces the enigmatic "Miss Drake," a dragon who has been the patron (she cries pearls) of a San Francisco family for generations. After her last pet human passes away from old age, she's not about to have another pet. But then she learns that her pet entrusted all the secrets to Miss Drake's existence to her grand-niece, Winnie, an independent, stubborn, and lonely young girl who is determined to befriend the mourning dragon. Though they get off to a rough start, the pair begin to appreciate one another, just in time for catastrophe to strike: Winnie, a budding artist, accidentally animates her sketches, setting them free to roam San Francisco. It's up to Miss Drake and Winnie to retrieve the sketches, keep magic secret, and--when it comes down to it--save all of the magic users in San Francisco. This is an excellent fantasy novel (no surprise given the reputations of the authors!) and parents who grew up on Patricia Wrede's Dealing with Dragons series are sure to want to read this one alongside their children.
