Hannah, the Brownie Book Club Editor, thinks this...

Dragonsdale reminds me a bit of the Harry Potter books - it's full of mystery and adventure. My favourite bit of the book was when Cara and Sky ran away and spent the night on the hills. My favourite character was Sky the dragon. I have a picture of her in my head and I imagine her to be really beautiful with bright green eyes and matching scales.

Amelia, aged eight, thinks this...

I don't normally like books about dragons 'cause they scare me a little bit but this book wasn't so bad. I felt sorry for Cara when she couldn't ride Sky but I was glad when it all got sorted.

Priya, aged nine, thinks this...

Dragonsdale is my kind of book. I love books like this. It was my birthday last week and my brother bought me this book and another one which wasn't as good as this one. My favourite character was Hortense 'cause she was always stroppy and likes getting her own way like me.

Laura, aged nine, thinks this...

I loved Dragonsdale. I thought it was mean when Hortense whipped Skydancer. He didn't deserve it. My favourite character was Cara, she is really like me. I think that book is definitely in my top five because I really like adventure books. And Huw was so mean. Skydancer was really cute. Breena was friendly and Drane was really funny!

Kate, aged nine, thinks this...

I thought it was ok but it was a bit too long and there is no special bits in it. I would've liked to have had more interesting bits in it. I still prefer horses to dragons.

Courtney, aged eight, thinks this...

I don't normally read books like this but I thought it was brilliant. I really enjoyed it. My favourite was Hortense as he was stroppy all the time and Cara was great as well.

Eleanor, aged nine, thinks this...

Dragonsdale is one of my favourite books. It has lots of exciting things inside it. Cara and Sky are both friends, and I think they should always be best friends, and I was really happy when Cara's dad let her ride Sky. I love all the dragon books; first is Dragonsdale and second is Dragon Keeper. I love dragons and will always love them. I'm glad it was a happy ending!

Charlotte, aged ten, thinks this...

Dragonsdale is not the sort of book I would normally read but I enjoyed reading it a lot. I felt sorry for Cara when she couldn't fly Sky but it was all back to good when it got sorted.

Depali, aged seven, thinks this...

I think this book is quite adventurous. I love to read books like that. I loved it when Cara rode the dragon but it could have some adjectives.

Ciara, aged seven, thinks this...

It's ok but it is not my kind of book because it's a bit sad. My favourite character was Cara 'cause she was pretty.

Grace, aged seven, thinks this...

I like the dragon but it is sad when her dad says that she can't go to the championships. Then I found it on the computer, then I decided to buy it. Then when I read it it was great and I even liked Cara and Sky.

Lola, aged nine, thinks this...

I think Dragonsdale is ok but I think that it couldn't include dragons because it scares people when they read it at night.
