The Dragon of the Month Club is the exciting first installment in a new middle-grade (ages 8-12) fantasy book series that tells the story of Ayana Fall and Tyler Travers, two best friends who stumble across an extraordinarily magical book and soon find themselves enrolled as members of a very special and exclusive club – The Dragon of the Month Club.. On the thirteenth of every month a new dragon conjuring spell is revealed and the two friends attempt to summon the latest Dragon of the Month. The varieties are almost endless: Air Dragons, Paper Dragons, Fog Dragons, Waterfall Dragons, Rock Dragons, Tree Dragons – not to mention special bonus dragons for all the major holidays, including a particularly prickly Holly Dragon for Christmas.
But one day when a conjuring spell somehow goes wrong Ayana and Tyler find themselves unexpectedly drawn into a fantastical world of adventure based on the various books scattered all across Tyler’s messy bedroom. Travelling from one book-inspired world to the next with nothing to rely on but their wits and a cast of strange and exotic dragons at their disposal they must try to somehow find their way home again.
Drawing inspiration from some of literature’s most memorable stories – from 19th century German folktales to the streets of Sherlock Holmes’s London – the adventures of Ayana and Tyler bring these classic stories to life in delightfully strange and unexpected ways. Filled with fascinating detail and non-stop action these books will spark the imaginations of readers of all ages to inspire a life-long love of reading and seeking out books that are just a little bit off the beaten track.
I recieved a copy of this book at no cost in exchange for an honest review.
This was a very cute and fun read! I received a copy of this to review with my 12 years old son. We are both avid readers and he loves to devour new books. This story is a pretty quick and easy read, so it held both our interests from beginning to end. The characters are likable and funny and the friendship between the 2 main characters was sweet. My son loved the dragons and fantasy part of this story and could not wait to read more every time we had the chance. The story had a few little twists and turns as well. This was just overall a really cute and fun read that was perfect for my sons age group and was fun for me to read with him!
