Nory Horace can turn herself into a kitten. But sometimes she adds in a bit of dragon and, well, accidentally turns into a dritten. Oops? Her friend Andres Padillo can fly high . . . but then he can’t fly back down again.

Nory and Andres are in an Upside-Down Magic class with other kids who have unusual magic. Now they’re off on their first-ever overnight field trip! At Dragon Haven, Nory, Andres, and their UDM classmates get to swim with dragons, fly with dragons, and feed dragons. There’s even a Hatchery, where they might get to see a newborn dragon.

There’s only one downer. The UDM kids aren’t the only ones visiting Dragon Haven. There are other students there, too. Students from another school. Students with “normal” magic. Dragon rescue, bonfires, and pajama breakfasts won’t be nearly as fun with a bunch of snooty strangers.

Unless . . . maybe everything isn’t as bad as it first seems. Thrown together with kids who are probably enemies, but might be friends, the UDM kids dive into their topsy-turviest adventure yet.

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.
