This is the December 2010 installment of my Book of the Month Club. These books have been suggested by a fellow Librarian from Earth, her name is Kit Ward-Crixell and she is a librarian in New Braunfels, Texas, USA.
Here there be more dragons! This month we continue looking in to books that remind us of the world of Dragonspyre.
Dragon Slippers by Jessica Day George – The first in a series, Dragon Slippers introduces Creel, a feisty girl with a talent for sewing, and a world in which dragons are the good guys and try their best to stay out of the way of troublesome humans. George’s characters are terrifically drawn, especially the dragons, and the contrast between the kindly dragons and the not-so-kindly humans Creel encounters in her quest to make her living will impress kids who can understand irony.
Look for this book in your school or local library and enjoy reading, young Wizards!
