37 months - O was totally into the first book which we read twice in four days. This one she enjoyed as well but we only read it once which I conclude to be not as interesting as the first. This is a nice series and a good starting read aloud novels. ( )

I liked when the dragon almost fainted because he was standing in water so long. I wish I could have the 3 bags of gold. I liked how the dragon was colored. ( )

This is a classic tale about a boy who rescues a dragon and then gets a ride home from him- after they save the canaries on the Isle of Feathers. I wasn't that into it, though I think it must have stayed in print so long for some reason, I just am not exactly sure what it is. Perhaps children are drawn to the boy's adventures, and to the fact that he gets to have them with a dragon. I did notice that the dragon had a similar sort of personality as the reluctant dragon- very gentlemanly. ( )
