It would be a senseless death. And I really like Sid and Aspen. Don't ruin their eternal love. I kinda hope I'm wrong with my predictions and that Loth finds some other kick-ass way for Aspen to survive, because I'd be half disappointed if I guessed completely right: Obsidian has been putting off his mandatory time spent in his human form, but when he is chosen to be the next king of the dragons, his time is up.
While enrolled in school, Sid meets a fascinating girl named Aspen who is the only person he has met who loves dragons, instead of the fear most feel.
Aspen wants nothing to do with Sid, who causes her anxiety and brings back painful memories, instead she just wants to take pictures of dragons and do her own thing.
The two of them are thrown together by a fate neither could predict. The book is really short, at only ish pages as per my ereader, and I was instantly surprised by how in-depth the world is that the author created right at the get-go.
Based on the complexity, I knew that this few amount of pages could not contain everything that I felt could possibly happen and that I was reading the first in a new series that deals with Dragons set in an altered USA.
I liked the background world the author gave me, with dragons as an accepted part of the ecosystem and National Parks are where they live and can be seen.
Also, the dragon hierarchy was complex, with color changing bodies, fire breathing and magical skills based on type of dragon, mating and living among the humans so that they can understand them better.
I liked that the humans had no idea as to what the dragons were up to, or that they had human forms. I think I liked Sid better as a dragon than a person when he was first introduced.
I was a little put out by Sid having this intense long term relationship with his dragon-almost-mate Skye, and then within a month being interested in pursuing a romantic relationship with Aspen.
He came off super strong in a stalker kind of way and I found it a turn off. For someone who can read other's emotions, he sure didn't seem to pick up on her dislike of him.
Why not try and be her friend, and be happy with that? Nope, it has to be romance or nothing. Also, he fell kind of flat as a person for the first half of the story or so , but that is just in my opinion.
He definitely became a more well rounded character once he started dating Aspen, but maybe that was the author's point, to make him more human as he has these experiences and feelings.
Aspen was kind of an odd duck. She hated school and could care less if she graduated, felt little sympathy for her twin brother who suffered from anxiety, lived like her parents were her roommates, kind of pretty much disregarded every rule and gave no cares to other's feelings.
With both characters, it felt like their emotions were one dimensional and that they overall lacked depth, so it was hard to get invested in them at the start of the book.
Also, I have no idea why Aspen was friends with Tori, who was a total tool, by stealing her stuff and changing her physical appearance to become Aspen.
Can you say creepy? I wanted to warn Aspen to watch her back before Tori took over her life and disposed of her body.
The situation with Marc was really terrible and I felt bad for her, but it did raise a few questions with me. Oh and when did it become ok to give your child anxiety medication laced ice cream?
That one caught me off guard, yet it was casually referenced like everyone does it. I hard a hard time getting into the book when I started, but by the middle, I flew through the pages.
I feel bad saying negative things about the characters but I have to like the characters to really enjoy a story, so they were a hindrance to me enjoying the book when I first picked it up.
Both characters became more fleshed out as the book progressed and I became more interested in the story the further I went. I think the world the author created was great and detailed with tons of potential and I look forward to what she will create next.
Romance and intrigue come together to make an adventure set in the modern Yellowstone National Park. While the author struggles with creating believable dialogue, the characters still have believable experiences and reactions.
The romance is disturbing at times, as the male half of the relationship--who is over years old, a near-immortal dragon--continues pursuing a year-old human girl even after she has clearly expressed that she is not interested.
This technically pedophilic relationship involves stalking, lying, and even physical harassment when he does things like break her possessions or tug her hair while they sit in class.
He isolates her from her friends by kissing her publicly, causing her best friend to end their long friendship. The girl also has several flashbacks to being raped several years before by another man--who is eventually brought to justice.
I feel the trauma induced by the assault is handled fairly well and respectfully, but some readers may find it triggering. Ends on a cliffhanger Just as things were getting interesting.
The storyline was new, fresh, and interesting. But poor execution cause it to be slow and hard to read. See all reviews.
I first read this book as a little girl-- I think I received it as a birthday present for my 7th birthday, possibly my 8th.

And then I went and grew up and became a normal ok, normal-ish person, except that every once in a while, something --a bowl of soggy cereal; a fresh fall of snow as pretty and sparkling as a frosted cake; the shadows cast by a streetlight on a garden at night-- would trigger a memory of that book, and I would be utterly transported back to those first vivid images it planted in my brain ages and ages ago.
Not every book I loved as a kid still holds up to rereading as an adult. But this one does. I first rediscovered it about 5 years ago, and it was like, I don't even know.
Like I'd found that girl I was best friends with in kindergarden, but she moved to Georgia and I never got her address, and so I thought I'd never see her again, but then I DID, and she was even cooler than I remembered, and we became best friends all over again.
It was like that. I can't even write about this book without wanting to read it all over again. View all 3 comments.
I reread this every decade or so, and love it every time. Yay, it's now on Project Gutenberg so I can reread it again any time, and pass on my paperback to another reader.
Yes it's old-fashioned, but free from the pretensions and stuffiness that one tends to associate with that word. Yes, it's charming, almost twee - but, like the tales of Beatrix Potter , for example The Tale of Ginger and Pickles , it's got plenty of mischief and satire.

You had only to throw them out into a field if you wanted it plowed. Then the whole surface land turned itself over in its anxiety to get rid of something so wicked, and in the morning the field was found to plowed as thoroughly as any young man at Oxford.
Oct 28, Dan rated it really liked it. The book was written over a century ago but holds up surprisingly well. She is a master storyteller and her books have a good deal of humor, wit and rarely take things too seriously.
CS Lewis is said to have read her books when he was a child. Back to the book. There were four stories that my kids and I thought especially notable.
Uncle James - Evil Uncle James the magician runs Rotundia a world where big creatures are little and little creatures are big because the world spins the wrong way.
The Island of Nine Whirlpools - princess is locked away on a remote island guarded by a dragon and nine whirlpools all arranged by her vindictive magician father.
She stays alive on the island for generations without aging and her legend attracts suitors, usually sailors, who fail until a very clever boy arrives.
The Dragon Tamers - this story has a very weird twist at the end but involves a dragon in a dungeon who wants to eat the townspeople but is repeatedly tricked into captivity.
Kind Little Cockatrice - this one is a moral tale where an inventive but disobedient Edmund finally learns to listen to his elders when he befriends a cockatrice and needs to defeat a marauding dragon.
These last two stories reminded me of Tolkien dragons and CS Lewis very similar writing style although much more light hearted.
Jul 17, Siddharth Chakravarthy rated it liked it. Considering the fact that this book came out nealry a century ago, it wasn't a bad read.
In fact I'm pretty impressed with the simplicity of the language which makes it easy for the reader to follow the stories. Kids who love fantasy ie.
Dragons, Princess and stuff would find this book to be amusing. Feb 11, C. Cabaniss rated it it was ok Shelves: All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Some of the ideas were interesting, I just wasn't that thrilled by how things were handled. This was intended for children, I believe, so some of the issues with story telling might just be that I prefer stories written for an older audience.
Each story deals with a dragon. Usually the characters have to kill the dragon to escape or trick the dragon into being locked away.
It has a lighthearted fairy tale feel in most of the stories. Wven when bad things happen like getting turned to stone or having your hands burned off there is always a way to fix it.
The audio was well done, the stories just didn't work that well for me. Mar 03, C. Stunkard rated it really liked it.
I discovered this book on Kindle but unfortunately let it sit on my digital bookshelf for 18 months gathering bytedust if there is such a thing.
When I finally made the time to read it, I was very glad I did. Granted, I had thought it was a non-fiction book outlining all the various dragon myths of the world, but I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that it was much more.

The Book of Dragons is a fun series of kid-friendly and humorous short stories about children and their misadventures with large, cumbersome, and problematic dragons.
The book has been around for some time over years , but it contains a timeless quality that both engages the imagination and creates a sense of wonder.
The writing is wonderful, and the sentiments, refreshing. I wish I had read the Book of Dragons as a Child or had it read to me , and I plan to share it with parents of youngsters I know, as well as my own children should I have them some day.
It definitely stroke a chord with me even if the stories are - naturally! You know that feeling of excitement you got when reading fantasy books for the first time as a little kid?
This book will totally give you that feeling again! There's a story about a dragon escaping from a book, a dragon at the north pole, a dragon who eats an entire village in one gulp, a dragon You know that feeling of excitement you got when reading fantasy books for the first time as a little kid?
There's a story about a dragon escaping from a book, a dragon at the north pole, a dragon who eats an entire village in one gulp, a dragon banished to the bottom of the ocean A charming collection of children stories featuring dragons and not only, with great teachings at the end of each.
These stories are written in classic fairytale style and wrapped up in Wonderland hijinx with a side of Gulliver's adventures.
I listened to the audiobook. I was supplied with a review audiobook via Audiobook Boom. The most charming thing I've read in a long time.
Must read more E. Jun 03, Ahmed Mahdi rated it it was amazing Shelves: Mar 30, Jessica rated it it was amazing.
What charming book filled with stories of princesses, curious children and of course dragons. Reading these stories woke the kid in me that loved to curl up on my grandmothers lap for story time.
Feb 01, Jefferson rated it really liked it Shelves: In The Book of Dragons E. Nesbit tells eight humorous and imaginative fairy tales about dragons set in modern England or fairy tale kingdoms, all with a modern perspective that both subverts and enjoys the genre.
In addition to a variety of dragons with different sizes, colors, personalities, abilities, and so on , Nesbit writes engagingly about other creatures, from magical ones cockatrice, manticore, etc.
Wizards and witches, princes and princesses appear, too, as well as modern children, usually in brother and sister pairs. In the first story, "The Book of Beasts," a little boy becomes king and looks in a magical tome whose illustrated creatures escape into the real world when their page is opened, with unforeseen results.
In "The Deliverers of Their Country," Effie and her brother Harry decide to do something about a plague of green dragons, and we learn why England's climate is so wet and cool.
In "The Ice Dragon, or Do as You Are Told," George who compares things to lampposts and ramrods and the like and his little sister Jane who compares them to dream lilies and fairy spears slide to the sublime North Pole, encountering a sportsman, a butterfly collector, a band of spiteful sealskin dwarfs, and a terrible and beautiful ice dragon, all because they disobey their parents.
In "The Fiery Dragon, or the Heart of Stone and the Heart of Gold," Princess Sabrinetta and the pig keeper Elfin and his seventy and five sleek, black, and devoted pigs deal with the evil Prince Tiresome and a very hot dragon.
The last story, "Kind Little Edmund, or The Caves and the Cockatrice," depicts the dangers and benefits of having an inquiring mind.
Many of the stories criticize the human weaknesses of seeing only what we believe is real and of understanding and explaining the world in a grown-up, rational and factual way.
Nesbit's narrator is a special kind of grown-up, one who is whole-heartedly on the side of children. She addresses the child reader as "you" with clever and warm regularity as she explains, confesses, advises, reveals, and jokes.
She likes children who are naughty but good-natured, who disobey but are curious, imaginative, kind-hearted, and loving.
Nesbit writes many vivid, humorous, striking, or beautiful similes. One dragon's "claws were as long as lessons and as sharp as bayonets. But it's hard to get in my trade [being a witch].
I should like some one to love me. I want to find out new things that nobody has thought of but me. Children and adults should enjoy them.
Feb 14, R. This book is a collection of stories on dragon, some princesses, and a few evil uncles. However, they aren't the cliched, cold porridge plots we typically think of.
Nesbitt has such a charming, informal way of writing. I fell in love with her style in the first two sentences. She condemns their actions verbally but the p This book is a collection of stories on dragon, some princesses, and a few evil uncles.
This is a cute little collection of stories about dragons. There's a nice range of dragons here, in terms of color and type, from a classic red fire-breather to a dragon made of ice to a few that really follow the old term "wurm" for dragon.
Of course, all of the dragons are rather nasty, but that's to be expected from Western dragons, especially in a book written a hundred years ago.
Friendly dragons are, at least in some ways, a more recent trend. In terms of genre, there's a mix of fairy tale This is a cute little collection of stories about dragons.
In terms of genre, there's a mix of fairy tales and just so stories, along with one or two stories that are set in contemporary times. I don't think I've ever read this book before, and yet I did recognize the one about the plague of dragons bothering England.
I distinctly remember loving the idea of the Universal Taproom when I was a kid. There are some other imaginative ideas here, including a book of beasts that can bring the beasts to life, and an island where the size of everything is reversed from normal because it spun the wrong way around when the world was born.
