Dragon keepers Jesse and Daisy need help!
Emmy, their rapidly growing dragon, has become a real grouch, saying she's missing "something," and the cousins don't have a clue what that something is. Jesse and Daisy go online to ask Professor Andersson, their favorite dragon expert, for help and end up seeing him being kidnapped!
The kidnapper is none other than Sadie Huffington, the girlfriend of their enemy, St. George the Dragon Slayer. She has hatched a wicked scheme to use the professor to both find St. George and capture Emmy. Now the dragon keepers and their dragon must storm Sadie's castle and rescue the professor from the witch and her pack of vicious dog-men!
In this third fantasy book in the Dragon Keepers series, Kate Klimo introduces readers to a magical library filled with shelf elves and reveals the secrets of the gigantic red book that Jesse and Daisy discovered in The Dragon in the Sock Drawer. She keeps the action and adventure flying while bringing both heart and imagination to this tale of two kids and a dragon, growing up together.
The Dragon Keepers series is perfect for kids who crave books about dragons and magic but are caught betwixt and between—too old for Magic Tree House and not yet ready for Eragon and the Inheritance cycle.
From the Hardcover edition.

Kate Klimo grew up in the little town of Sea Cliff, New York, with the Stenson Memorial Library just down the street from her house. She got her first wallet when she was eight, not for money but to hold her library card. She can still remember exactly where on the shelves her favorite books of fantasy sat. In Middletown, New York, where she and her husband, Harry, raised their three sons, the public library is housed in a wonderful old former railway station—and from there, she and her family have taken many memorable trips.
From the Hardcover edition.
Gr 4-6–This installment has cousins Jesse and Daisy struggling to manage Emmy the dragon's mood swings. At the same time, their adviser and confidant, Professor Andersson, is being held captive by sadistic Sadie Huffington, St. George the Dragon Slayer's girlfriend. She plans to capture Emmy in order to extract information about George's whereabouts. As the children seek to rescue Professor Andersson while staying a half-step ahead of Ms. Huffington, Emmy finally sprouts her wings, enabling the children to fly on her back–a flight of fancy no child could resist. The book is chock-full of interesting words and phrases that may intimidate some readers and delight others, such as "scriptorium," "harridan," "vermilion," and "fraught with emotional resonance," and the reading level seems a bit uneven. However, if your readers latched onto the first two volumes in this series, they won't be disappointed with the continuing quests and adventures of this dynamic trio.Maggie Chase, Boise State University, ID
