The book is stunningly written and refreshingly different. There are a few reasons why I admire Wilkinson so greatly: Firstly, the setting of the novel is a challenge in itself.

Not only is she setting her novel in China, but also in Ancient China. This would have meant months of research to adequately portray the world into which the reader is thrust. Secondly, the young protagonist. A child protagonist is always chall I read this book as a child and it moved me in a way that I’m unable to forget.

A child protagonist is always challenging, no matter whether it’s a children’s or an adult novel. You need to dumb down vocabulary and simplify internal monologues. It’s hard to get your point across. Wilkinson does this in such a way that reading and understanding Ping is as easy as breathing.

Finally, the fact that her novel is about dragons. Normally, Cragonkeeper turn up my nose and sniff at such a plot. However, Wilkinson made me forget how much I disliked dragon fantasy.

Dragon Keeper by Carole Wilkinson – review | Children’s books | The Guardian

Suddenly, a dragon hunter comes, and is going to kill the remaining dragon for it’s organs, so she helps it escape, but it will only leave if she goes with it. She goes with it, but only wants to go back to where she was, because even though her life has not been happy, it is the only one she knows.

This becomes impossible, though, when she discovers that the dragon hunter dragonkedper hunting for not only for the dragon, but also for HER, and that the whole country believes that she has stolen this dragon, and killed the other. Even though she is not entirely fond of the dragon, she decides to accompany it on it’s journey to the Ocean, and to do as the dragon tells her, and protect its stone. The dragon finds the stone even more important than its own health for some reason.

Well, there were good parts and bad parts to this wwilkinson. The good parts were that the dragon teaches her to count, which she has never learned, by saying, for example, 20 tens and 2 for 22, so throughout the book counting is done that way.

This helps the reader feel more connected with her, in a way.

I thought it was an interesting device. There is also a lot of adventure that happens, and the main character grows and changes a lot throughout the book, which is fun to read.

The bad parts are that there are a lot of boring downtimes between the adventurous parts, and they really drag. Also, the main character just goes along with the dragon, and takes a long time to warm up to him, even though he is very nice to her. She also seems to not care about what he is doing that much, which is dumb because she is going along with him, and when she finally DOES ask, about 20 pages from the end, she discovers it directly affects the rest of her life.

Dragon Keeper

I found her stupid and apathetic throughout a lot of the book, so it was hard to really connect with her, despite the methods the author uses, which I discussed above. There also is something to do with the dragon stone, which I won’t ruin, but I figured it out almost instantly, and she doesn’t bother to ask about it, again, until 20 pages from the end, so that was annoying too.

Also, I’ve never read a book that takes place in BC China, so I wish the sragonkeeper would have described things a little more. It was a little to much from the characters mindset, and if it was something common to her, it wouldn’t be described, even if it was something foreign to the reader.

Dragonkeeper

There is a sequel, which I’ve read reviews that say it’s better than this one. I could wilkimson that, since she knows what’s going on in the second book so I wouldn’t find her as annoying.

So, I think I’ll check it out. Jun 04, Kat Heckenbach rated it it was amazing. I’m writing this on behalf of my 11 yr old son. He adores this series. He is normally one who reads only for information. A three inch thick reference book about sea animals will occupy him for hours, but a novel will get scrutiny dragohkeeper a turned up nose.

And no, not Diary of a Wimpy Kid. He actually ended up choosing the second book in the series Garden of the Pur I’m writing this on behalf of my 11 yr old son. Dragonkeeer actually ended up choosing the second book in the series Garden of the Purple Dgagonkeepernot realizing it was a series. Stayed up late at night reading yep, he can, we homeschool and raved and raved about it. He told me that I “must” read it too. When he finished, he begged me to get the first book this one and is reading it now, and loves it as much as the second book.

We have also ordered the third book Dragon Moon. The things he says he loves about it are: It is full of action. He loves the dragon. He loves the Asian culture. He says is wilkinsln “sucks him in.

I am so tired of reading this. I has no idea why but this book doesn’t make me feel that it was set originally in China.

It was just plain boring. The dragon is too weak, it’s just like people touch iron on it and it weaken. The girl is okay, but nothing much was indicates through her characters. It was not satisfying as I thought. I do like Chinese history, but this book fails me. I love the way she writes and the plot is so good! Apr 02, John Nebauer rated it really liked it Shelves: In western literature, dragons are objects of terror that hoard treasure and breathe fire.

But the red fire-breather la Smaug think is usually our first picture.
