Dragon Rider: Reviewed

Author:Cornelia Funke
Reading Level (Conceptual):Children 8 and up
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Children 8 and up
Year of publication:2004

Lovely, gentle story about a community of fantastical creatures and a few humans who adventure together to discover a place in which to build a new life together.

One of the many delights:
The brownie named Sorrel lives to eat mushrooms. But when she doesn't like someone and calls him or her names, Sorrel uses the names of poisonous mushrooms as epithets. SO CUTE!!!

We have come to believe that anything Cornelia Funke writes might be enjoyable reading. But Dragon Rider might just be our favorite of Funke's books. It has no where near the stress level of others, particularly the Ink... books. But you should read them all. (Well, maybe it should be your kid who is seen getting them out of the library.)
