Overview

The Dragon in the Sock Drawer (Dragon Keepers Series #1) by Kate Klimo, John Shroades

For Magic Tree House readers who are ready for something longer, the Dragon Keepers series has the perfect length and reading level, along with the fast-paced writing, adventure, and sense of teamwork that kids love to read.

Ten-year-old cousins Jesse and Daisy have always wanted something magical to happen to them. So it’s a wish come true when Jesse’s newly found thunder egg hatches and a helpless, tiny, but very loud, baby dragon pops out. Soon the two kids are at the dragon’s beck and call, trying to figure out what to feed her. An Internet search leads them to the library, which leads them back to the Internet, where they find a very strange Web site called foundadragon.org. Here the cousins discover that the dragon’s hatching has designated them “Dragon Keepers.” Not only do they have to feed the dragon, whom they named Emmy, but they also have to keep her safe from the villainous Saint George, who has kept himself alive over centuries by drinking dragons’ blood!

Awsome

Have you ever REALLY wanted to have a magical adventure? If your answer is yes, then this could be the book for you! One day, cousins Jesse and Daisy discover a 'thunder egg' which turns out to be a dragon egg that is ready to hatch! When the loud but adorable dragon, named Emerald, hatches out of the egg, Jesse and Daisy look everywhere to find information about dragon care. When they find a website called www.foundadragon.com, they find out that dragon-keeping is harder than they expect! I recommend this for everyone who loves fantasy,dragons,or otherwise. Be sure to check out the second book, Dragon in the Driveway!

Klimo does a wonderful job in this book of stretching one's imagination. New chapter book readers will enjoy this story and older readers will like the characters' adventure. Take a weekend and curl up with this book. Unfortunately,waiting for the next one will be hard but worthwhile.

This is the story of ten-year-old cousins Jesse and Daisy, who look every day for something magical to happen to them.

They find what they believe is a geode called a Thunder egg. The "Thunder egg," though, turns out to be a dragon egg - and thus begins the story of two young Dragon Keepers.

I thoroughly enjoyed THE DRAGON IN THE SOCK DRAWER from beginning to end. Jesse and Daisy learn as the days pass how to take care of their new charge. The story flowed very well and I can't wait to read more about the Dragon Keepers.

I think this story would be good for any child, although it is recommended for 9-12 year olds. I was very happy to see two characters this young stand up for themselves and their dragon.

I highly recommend this book, as it will capture the attention of kids and adults alike.

If I could I would give it 2 and a half star. This book is geared for early readers of about 10 years of age, if that. It is not worth buying if you like adventure, action, romance, or anything that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
