I know boys and girls alike will find this story fascinating and fun. My daughter might complain that it gets a bit "yucky" during the battle scenes, but not more than would cause any normal fifth grade boy to yell out "cool!" as he reads through it. In turn, the boy in my house might not appreciate the innocent crush Leonard has on Maiden Glennys, but my daughter will eat it up. A marvelous balance that is hard to create as an author and I believe Eschbacher has done it superbly.

Leonard is a simple page, serving the worst knight in the kingdom, Sir Ronald the Mediocre. When Leonard finds a depressed dragon, he devises a brilliant plan that will make his master famous for his bravery and skill in battle. Like all brilliant plans hatched by teenage boys, it goes spectacularly awry. From that point, the pace never lets up as Leonard finds he not only has to rescue the hapless Sir Ronald, he must pass through a dangerous enchanted forest to the home of the dragons to execute another brilliant plan that will save Camelot. Or destroy it.
Dragonfriend plays with all the conventions of the Arthurian fantasy, and Eschbacher does it skillfully and with a lot of humour. I found myself smiling and laughing, when I wasn't on the edge of my seat. The characters were vividly drawn and rang absolutely true. We've all met these people in our own lives.
It's a quick, easy and enjoyable ride, and I'm looking forward to the next installment in the Leonard the Great saga.
