A Dragon's Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans

Staff Review: A Dragon's Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans

"A Dragon's Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans" by Laurence Yep

'A Dragon's Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans'  by  Laurence Yep

Just two days after the funeral of her pet human, Fluffy (a.k.a. Amelia), a young girl named Winnie bursts into mournful Miss Drakes’s secret door in the basement proclaiming that she has been sent by her great-aunt Amelia so Miss Drake won't be lonely. Almost immediately, Miss Drake, who happens to be a dragon, theorizes that this seemingly obnoxious small human is going to be an extremely difficult pet to train. An adventure together leads them to more fantastical creatures and the procurement of a bewitched sketchbook destined to bring them both a bunch of trouble. This cute, heartwarming, humorous tale of unlikely friendships and love is one that tweens and all ages will enjoy.

Audience: Children, Tweens | Genre: Fiction, Fantasy
