Dragon Rider is one of my favorite books!  My whole family loves Cornelia Funke, but especially this fantastic adventure of an orphaned boy who makes friends with a dragon and a brownie (cat-like creature).  They must fly great distances and overcome many dangerous obstacles to find a safe place for the dragons to move to so that they are not discovered by people.  This book is full of suspense, adventure and incredible creatures.

Great book. The story is a great children's read and if you have a child you should give them this book. The dragon was so cute and was a fun addition along with the mangy cat. It was a great book filled with great characters. It may be no harry potter but really fills in the gap left behind. Fun and really teaches you the meaning of family and where home truly is.

Dive into a great fantasy! Firedrake, a young dragon, is warned by a rat, Rosa, that humans are coming to the valley where a band of dragonds dwell. Firedrake and a mischievous brownie, Sorrel, and an Orphan named Ben, embark on a perilous journey to find the Rim of Heaven, home of the dragons. On their mystical and magical journey they encounter new friends and enemies. This book has confirmed that Cornelia Funke should be on my "Favorite Authors" list.

Eh...
It was okay, but just okay. I thought it was going to be good (being written by one of my favorite authors, Cornellia Funke, and all.) but, like I sayed...just okay. Average. I usually like talking animals and books about great adventures alot! This, for some reason, was a bit different...
But don't take my word for it because I know some paople who really like it!

Till next review...Carmen
