A Different And Fun Take on Magic

The UDM kids are off on an adventurous field trip at Dragon Haven. Nory, Andres, and her other UDM classmates are known for their upside-down and unusual magic. Andres can fly, but has trouble getting down which usually leaves him stranded alone in the air. Nory can transform into a cross between a kitten and a dragon which she calls a dritton. She can even breathe fire in this state.

On this field trip, they learn more about dragons. For example, they learn that a whelp is a baby dragon. It isn't long before they realize that they aren't the only students visiting Dragon Haven. Students with normal magic or there too and their presence may cause problems. Especially when Andres meets ordinary Flyers who can go up and down and Nory meets a new friend named Mitali.

I really like that Andres has his own self-discovery in DRAGON OVERNIGHT. I also enjoyed watching Nory and Mitali interact. Mitali can't cross animals when she transforms like Nory can, but they don't let their differences come between them. The adventures were fun and exciting which made for an entertaining story. The Upside-Down magic adds a tad of silliness and humor that made me laugh.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of magic, dragons, self-discovery, and friendship.
