ABOUT THIS BOOK

For Magic Tree House readers who are ready for something longer, the Dragon Keepers series has the perfect length and reading level, along with the fast-paced writing, adventure, and sense of teamwork that kids love to read.

TEN-YEAR-OLD COUSINS Jesse and Daisy have always wanted something magical to happen to them. So it’s a wish come true when Jesse’s newly found thunder egg hatches, and a helpless, tiny but very loud baby dragon pops out. Soon the two kids are at the dragon’s beck-and-call, trying to figure out what to feed her.

An Internet search leads them to the library, which leads them back to the Internet, where they find a very strange Web site called “foundadragon.org.” It is here that the cousins discover that the dragon’s hatching has designated them “Dragon Keepers” and that not only do they have to feed her, but they have to keep her safe from the villainous Saint George who has kept himself alive over centuries by drinking dragons’ blood.


From the Hardcover edition.

QUOTES

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

Kate Klimo first got the idea for this book many years ago when her three sons were small, and she came across a geode lying among the rolled up socks in one of their sock drawers. Now that her sons are all grown up, she has finally found the time to write the story down. When she is not writing, Kate is a children’s book publisher. She lives in Upstate New York with her husband, Harry, three horses, and one grandcat.


From the Hardcover edition.
