The Blockbuster #1 New York Times Bestseller, Now in Paperback! Only a secret destiny can conserve the dragons in this enchanting adventure in regards to the true meaning home. With a lonely boy named Ben on board, the brave young dragon Firedrake sets out on a magical journey to find the mythical location where silver dragons can reside in peace forever. Flying over moonlit lands and sparkling seas, they encounter fantastic creatures, summon up surprising courage--and cross the path of a ruthless villain with an ancient grudge who's determined to end their quest.

It's a fantasy, it's long, and it's got dragons in it. Ever offered that the reputation of bestselling fantasies The Thief Lord and Inkheart went global a few years ago, legions of fans have demanded more books from the German author than she can reasonably hope to write each year. Dragon Rider is bound to be another hit book from Cornelia Funke! So, re-discovering this hefty, earlier novel from 1997 was a logical development--and her keenest readers will devour it as before.

Firedrake is joined on his quest by Ben, an orphaned boy, and Sorrell--a wise-cracking Brownie that is an odd, but ingenious, grumpy kind of fairy. Their journey isn't a straightforward one by any means. Nettlebrand is aided by Twigleg, a homunculus who has stowed away in Ben's bag and who is feeding reports on their progress back to his master. Created by an alchemist referred to as Petrosius Henbane in 1424, Nettlebrand (a malevolent creature covered in impenetrable gold plates) is their greatest threat--he is intent on destroying them.

Their exciting encounters are many. It is easy to forgive the narrative's excessive length when readers are gorging on such a wonderfully inventive and readable story from an author who has her readers inside the palm of her hand on every page. (Age 9 and more than) --John Mc Lay
