Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
A Scaly Situation
Jeremy Thatcher knows a thing or two about raising animals—after all, his dad is a veterinarian.
But after he leaves Mr. Elives' magic shop with a strange marbled egg, it soon becomes clear that this is one pet he wasn't prepared for! How is he supposed to keep a flame-breathing dragon with razor-sharp teeth and an out-of-control appetite in his bedroom?
But if the playful baby dragon is ever to grow up to become a magnificent beast of myth and legend, it needs Jeremy. And though he doesn't know it yet, Jeremy needs a dragon.
"A funny, enjoyable, imaginative story whose serious undercurrents lend it unexpected depth." —Kirkus Reviews (starred)
