This is such a simply sweet book that will keep children of all ages engaged. It is clever, funny, engaging and full of adventure. The main character is a smart young boy, outwitting the antagonists to save an enslaved baby dragon. The book flows easily and the chapters are not too long to loose younger readers. I read this to my 3, 5 and 6yr olds and they all enjoyed it and could follow the story line. A beautiful tale of friendship, determination and kindness.
