Editorial Reviews

Review

A New York Times bestselling series!



Praise for Rise of the Earth Dragon (Dragon Masters #1):



"In this first of the Dragon Masters series, vocabularly is accessible; sentences, paragraphs, and chapters are short; and dialogue moves the story along rapidly. Black-and-white sketch-type drawings add depth to the story and feelings to the characters (both children and dragons). Emergent readers will find happy success here." -- Booklist



"The first of a new series of early chapter books, this entry is sure to attract fans. Brief chapters, large print, lots of action, attractive illustrations in every spread including a maplike panorama, an enviable protagonist -- who wouldn't want to be a Dragon Master? -- all combine to make an entertaining read. With plenty left to be resolved, the next entry will be eagerly sought after." - Kirkus Reviews



"Each page features wonderfully detailed pencil illustrations which help to support the text." -- Library Media Connection



Praise for BRANCHES books:



"These books should be considered for larger libraries wanting to enhance their easy-reader collections." -- School Library Journal



"A nice stepping stone to more advanced chapter books." -- Booklist
