Dragon’s Breath by E.D. Baker

This is the fourth book in the Frog Princess series by E. D. Baker. The series goes like this: A Prince Among Frogs, Dragon Kiss, The Frog Princess, Dragon’s Breath, The Dragon Princess, Once Upon A Curse, No Place for Magic, and Salamander Spell.

In Dragon’s Breath, Emerelda, Eadric and Grassina go on a quest to save Haywood from ‘otter-hood’. On the way they face many challenges and threats. But something terrible will happen concerning a family curse and a grumpy old witch …! My favourite part is when they meet Ralf, the dragon, and fight the Giant spider, as frogs – I thought this was interesting and scary because I HATE SPIDERS!

My favourite character was Ralf. Ralf is a dragon who is blue as well as being a young dragon prince whose grandfather is King Grumble Snort.

I really liked how this book is a real adventure and not just a normal fairy tale where five minutes later, they get married! It also doesn’t have the usual gender stereotypes fairy tales have.

I recommend it for 8-13 years old and I give it a 10 out of 10.

Dragon Keeper

A book I have read recently is called Dragon Keeper which is set in china.

It’s written by an amazing author called Carole Wilkinson who writes lots of cool books.

This story is the first book in a series of four.

It is about a young slave girl called Ping who is owned by a very mean man who looks after Chinese dragons and does the job badly.

One day Ping allows the dragon to escape but it takes her with him.

My favourite characters are Ping and Long Danzi ( the Chinese dragon) because they are adventures and get into trouble a lot ( Long Danzi means brave dragon in English.)

I am a girl and I really like this book but I’m not sure if boys would like it.

This book has an awesome combination of Chinese history and fantasy.

Compared to books like Harry Potter, I would give this book a nine out of ten.
