Thanks to the author for supplying a review copy of this title...
Review from Mia Madden, aged 11.
This is the first installment of the Dragon of the Month Club series. It tells the story of Ayana and Tyler, two best friends who don;'t have anything in common except their love of dragons. which only happens when they stumble across a book entitled 'The Book'. The cover also said 'Six easy steps to conjure your own dragon', which really intrigued them.
They first had to conjure the dragon, then two membership slips appeared on the back of The Book for the Dragon of the Month Club. Each month, a new dragon was published in The Book and the group attempted them. But during an attempt to conjure a steam dragon, the friends get sucked into a world made up of books around Tyler's bedroom. Ayana and Tyler will have to trudge through German fairytales, a sand-worm-infested book about dunes, Chinese folklore and more, to get back to the real world. Will they be able to make it back home safely?
Like all Iain Reading books, this one is awesome! You can even join the Dragon of the Month Club online - Here. You can send in dragons that you created. This book has all my favourite genres with a bit of fantasy included too...
I still can't believe that Iain is coming to visit Bleach House Library, and my school, YAY!
Anyway, I recommend this book for ages 8+.
The Dragon of the Month Club is available in paperback and ebook format.
