Where is the best place to find dragons? BOOKS!

Yes, books.  I’m sure there is a dragon-finding app out there…but really, if you want to meet a dragon, look in a book.

The book series that introduced me to dragons was Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern — dragons were like horses that could fly, breath fire, and communicate with you telepathically.  I was hooked, and even named my pet rabbit F’Lessan.  Here are 8 favorite dragon-related books/series I recall from over the years, in the order I remember reading them:

1. Dragonflight, Anne McCaffery — first of many books set on earth-like Pern, dragons that bond with chosen humans

2. Dragons of Autumn Twilight, Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman — first of many books set in the D&D world of Krynn, traditional dragons

3. Dragon’s Blood, Jane Yolen — first in series, fighting with a dragon can win slaves freedom on this planet

4. Dealing with Dragons, Patricia C. Wrede — first in a series (are all dragon books a series?) with good banter and fun

5. Eragon, Christopher Paolini — first in a series of 4, poor farm boy + dragons, swords, magic!

6. The Fire Within, Chris D’Lacey — first in a multitude of books, clay dragons *can* be real…and squirrels

7. The Dragonet Prophesy, Tui Sutherland — first in a series of many (and still being written!), these dragons are completely anthropomorphic, unlike all the dragons in the previously listed series, but that doesn’t mean I love them any less…Moon Rising is my absolute favorite book by Tui Sutherland, but you have to read them in order!

8. Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, Grace Lin — completely different from all of the above: NOT a series! Beautiful traditional folktales of China woven into a delightful adventure story with a happy ending.

Yes, BOOKS are where you meet dragons.  How many of these dragons have you met?  What books have I missed?

Love the cursive sheets. Seems as if cursive is in the background at school due to many other pressing curriculum requires. These sheets might be just the thing for students to use at home.
