Title and Author:
Dragon's Egg by Emily Martha Sorensen
Name of Reviewer:
This story is short but it packs a lot into its 60 pages and I enjoyed it very much.
Rose is a college student who wants to be a paleontologist but is stuck with a father who doesn't think a woman in the 1920's needs to be anything other than a wife or a teacher. Henry is a biology major who loves kids. Rose and Henry never expected to discover a baby dragon who wants these two strangers to be his parents when they walked into the American Museum of National History. What are two college students and a baby dragon not yet hatched to do?
You will find some interesting questions to ponder about parenting and personhood, a lot of humor, some great characterization of both Rose and Henry and a good, fun story. Don't miss this little gem!
And then get ready to buy and read the next book in the series "Dragon's Hope" - that is what I am off to do LOL!
I think this is written for young adults/college age who might be struggling with the thoughts of becoming parents but those who have already gone through parenthood will really appreciate looking back on the issues addressed as well. Dragon-lovers, of course, need to read this book.
Did you have a favorite character or least favorite character?
I thought Rose would be my favorite character after readying "Dragon's First Christmas" but Henry ended up being my favorite. He really has a heart of gold and is so kind both towards the baby dragon and Rose.
What mood did this book leave you in?
The story was so sweet and I definitely want more!
