What did you like about the book? An entertaining romp with dragons, composed entirely of emails exchanged between young Edward Smith-Pickle and his uncle Morton. Uncle Morton’s dinosaurs show up at Eddie’s house right before Christmas, and he has a heck of a time managing his parents’ chagrin with the unwanted guests, especially since his parents are divorced. This easy to read chapter book relays the challenges Eddie faces as he juggles two rascally dragons with vacation, miffed parents and the ever-on-his-way-but-never-quite-arriving Uncle. It was easy to pick up on the back story in this third book in the series.
To whom would you recommend this book? Kids who like dragons. Reminds me of Ursula Vernon’s Dragonbreath series.
Who should buy this book? Public and elementary school libraries
Where would you shelve it ? Fiction
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
