Green Dragon Codex By R.D. Henham aka Clint JohnsonThis book was a great read. Preteens will love the story. I enjoyed the writing and the easy way that the author pulled me into the story. When a ten-year-old boy (who is always getting himself into trouble) finds a chest near a dead dragon his life takes on a whole new meaning. The chest contains a tablet and a rock that later becomes a green dragon. He falls in love with the little hatchling and protects him from all that want to kill it. Everyone says that green dragons are evil by nature, but he doesn't care, this dragon will be different... He manages to get himself, his brother and a friend in dire troubles with a black wizard that almost cost them their lives. Recommended to dragons lovers everywhere and all who love fantasy.

The Green Dragon Codex The action and intensity never let up in this strong addition to the Dragon Codex series. The writing style is tight and very well done. Readers unfamiliar with the world of Dragonlance get an excellent primer in this adventure novel aimed at kids, though the adults will probably enjoy it too. This is the darkest of all of the Codex books, and discusses the terrors of war and the aftermath of the conflict that recently engulfed the land. Darkness aside, (which I like) the book features a very positive and funny main character, a boy named Scamp who finds himself in the middle of a very serious situation. Scamp finds a chest with the egg of a green dragon and like any young boy, immediately wants to keep the little wyrmling when everyone tells him he cannot. Scamp and his dour brother, Mather, and their friend Dannika, begin an adventure to save the baby dragon. They also want to find out what is so important about the other item in the chest with the egg. It's quite a crazy adventure with all the trappings of a classic fantasy. The villains of the book, the dragon slayers hunting the baby green dragon, could have been more competent-as dragon slayers should be in my opinion-but the slayers did have one surprise I wasn't expecting. No, I'm not going to ruin it here. Some of my favorite scenes were the ones with the adult dragons. Also, the climactic ending features a very unique and funny way to attack a dragon. The main character, Scamp is quite the resourceful hero, and kids will really enjoy his sense of humor and adventure. The Dragon Codex books have been a lot of fun, and this one, by Clint Johnson (the house name for the series is R.D. Henham), is an excellent addition to the line about everyone's favorite fantasy creature . . . dragons.
