Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
Have you ever wondered if dragons were real? If they really could fly and breathe fire from their noses? When you meet Saphira, a beautiful, flying dragon who communicates with her master through thoughts, you will never wonder again. Join Eragon for the adventure of his life as he discovers what it is to be a Dragon Rider. Meet Brom who begins his training; Durza, the Shade, who tries to take his life; Murtagh who protects him from Urgals and Ra'zac; and dwarfs, elves, and a werecat. But life is not all fun and adventure for Eragon. He suffers greatly from the death of his family and tries his best to adjust to the new life that is quickly becoming his own -- a life of magic and power and Saphira.
