Overview

Dragon's Egg by Emily Martha Sorensen

Rose didn't count on becoming a mother to a brand new baby dragon egg.

She's always wanted to be a paleontologist, and is now in college studying to become one. But a chance meeting at the American Museum of Natural History turns her world upside down. Because, millions of years after dragons have gone extinct, there's an egg that seems to be unexpectedly . . . alive.

The egg knows what he wants. He wants Rose and a stranger, Henry, to be his new parents. But can three strangers of two different species become a family?

Loved this sweet tale! My only complaint was it's much too short! Can't wait to read the next one!

I thought this was a lighthearted funny short story set in the 1920's about Rose who want to be a paleontologist. I thought it was a hoot that the museum is full of dragon bones along with the usual dinosaur bones. How can you go wrong reading about dragons. I liked the different take on dragons as a ton of eggs were found on a dig and off course museums all around the world bought some. However it ends up the eggs were just hibernating and in this first book, Virgil wakes in his egg and Rose and Henry find out that dragons are telepathic while in the eggs. The rest of the story is just a hoot especially Henry's interactions with Rose's dad and Rose's realization that baby Virgil's mother was just like her in personality. I received a free copy and I loved this lighthearted story that reads just like a day in the life of Rose.

[I voluntarily chose to review this ARC] "Perhaps, Rose thought, perhaps I am not so inadequate to the task as I have worried." In this episode, Rose and Henry are barely married when Virgil makes his debut. And with it come some boardering on slapstick communication between dragon and chosen parents. And one is left with the idea that both sides are rather clueless to proceed. What do you feed a baby dragon? Does it need diapers? Can anybody help? One of the funniest scenes is all these professors worrying and wondering what to feed Virgil and Rose just gets up and does it. I am an unabashed fan of this author and love her writing style. I can hardly wait for the next installment

Can a baby dragon throw a tantrum? Wellllllll, let’s find out. This is not your usual dragon tale of hot shifters and the maiden in love with him. It’s a baby. It has been waiting for a long time….waiting…waiting…waiting…for its parents. I felt so bad for the poor guy, so lost and alone. He imprints before he hatches, on Rose and the stranger. He speaks to them telepathically and they cannot say no. Rose’s life quickly spins out of control and I can hardly wait to see what happens when… Imagine all the difficulties of raising a baby dragon…what do you feed it…where will it sleep…where will it go to the bathroom? It’s funny where my thoughts went as I wondered how they would handle something they never could have foreseen coming into their life. OH NO! All to quickly I reached the end. Kudos to Emily Martha Sorensen for this fun story and fresh approach. This quick story was worth every minute and left me wanting more. Now I NEED Dragon’s Hope.

Dragon's Egg is a short fun adventure in what looks to be a serial. I read it right after watching J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them so I was in the right headspace to enter this world. I look forward to seeing where the author takes Rose, Henry and their unusual baby.

Rose really just wants to be a paleontologist. While at the dragon exhibit at the Museum, Rose is talking with the curator Mr. Teedle. He shows her the dragon eggs that the Museum just bought. They don't look like fossilized eggs. One egg decides that he wants Rose to be his mother and another college student Henry to be his father. Can't wait to read more!!! Henry and Rose have to figure what they are going to do, how do humans raise a dragon when dragons have been gone for a long time! When Henry meets Rose's family was great! I was given a copy for an honest review. Can't wait to read more about Virgil and the other eggs!

Eggcellent Intrigue!! This is such a cute story! Can you imagine what would happen if you found an egg, then found out that it was a dragon egg and the dragon could be alive! I shared this adorable story with my son and he made it that much more delightful! What a fun book! I am anticipating where Ms. Sorenson goes with this. I recommend this book to all ages.
