USA Today bestselling series!Praise for Rise of the Earth Dragon (Dragon Masters #1):
"In this first of the Dragon Masters series, vocabulary is accessible; sentences,
paragraphs, and chapters are short; and dialogue moves the story along rapidly.
Black-and-white sketch-type drawings add depth to the story and feelings to the
characters (both children and dragons). Emergent readers will find happy success
here." -- Booklist
"The first of a new series of early chapter books, this entry is sure to attract fans.
Brief chapters, large print, lots of action, attractive illustrations in every spread
including a maplike panorama, an enviable protagonist -- who wouldn't want to be a Dragon Master? -- all combine to make an entertaining read. With plenty left to be resolved, the next entry will be eagerly sought after." -- Kirkus Reviews
