Book Description

ABOUT THE BOOK

FALCON'S DRAGON is the story of a little girl named Falcon who finds a hot, scarlet egg in New York City's Central Park and carefully brings it home to care for it. And, one day, a baby dragon cracks through the eggshell and changes Falcon’s life forever.

In Book 1, “Falcon’s Egg,” Falcon begins her lifelong journey into the world of magic, that mysterious, enchanting place that glimmers just beyond the edge of vision. It is a country known only to believers, whose unique qualities will always set them apart, and Falcon is not at all sure whether this is a gift…or a curse.

When Falcon returns from Central Park, she persuades her neighbor, Ardene, to keep the egg safe in her own apartment. Falcon’s Great-Great-Aunt Emily joins them and brings in an ornithologist from the museum to wait for the egg to hatch. When it does, the tiny dragon that emerges, that Falcon names “Egg,” becomes both a joy and a difficult problem as Egg grows bigger and bigger, and hotter and hotter. When Egg learns to fly, Falcon finds herself in real trouble. What do you do with a secret dragon in New York City? The search for a solution forces Falcon to face her greatest fear.

In Book 2, “Falcon and the Charles Street Witch,” Falcon embarks upon a quest to find her lost brother and rescue her beloved Egg from people who would lock Egg up or maybe even kill her. In the course of Falcon’s adventures, she learns more about her surprising Great-Great-Aunt Emily and meets a colorful, ancient dragon. Through it all, the magic world both delights and terrifies Falcon, but it also leads her to discover a spark of unexpected courage within her own heart.

FALCON'S DRAGON is a story of mystery and magic, of dragonsbreath and enchanted gardens as Falcon and Egg learn about life, family and the magical world of dragons.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Read April 13, 2012
Verified Purchase
This was a pleasant read, both when I read it myself the first time through, and as a read-aloud book to be shared with my seven year old daughter. She enjoyed it as much as I did, and it prompted a number of important questions as to why you might make one choice over another.

I would have no trouble recommending this book to either adults of younger readers but found it to be especially suitable for a read together to be shared with a child.
