Synopsis: Determined to end the age-old battle between humans and dragons, Arthur, a misunderstood dragon, rescues an abandoned baby who grows up to become a powerful ally in his quest
From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6 Arthur, an impetuous young dragon, goes against the prohibitions of his tribe and the cautions of his mother to rescue a human baby from a cornfield. Eventually, his risk-taking pays off; his human friend Patrick helps rescue the dragons from the threats of the evil Moon. Humans and dragons become friends, and Arthur, with the help of his beautiful white dragon queen, follows in his father's footsteps as leader of his dragon tribe. This disappointing fantasy lacks the unified vision necessary to establish the believability of an imaginary world. The skittish plot seems less dependent upon fate than on the author's whims, caprices which often paint the story into a corner. A prime example is the anthropomorphic evil Moon, which moves about the sky freely, at the same time maintaining a "dark side" to the sun at all times. Characterization and setting suffer from lack of attention too; Patrick's character is never developed to its full potential, and the setting of contemporary Vermont provides little to the story beyond a snowy backdrop. Dragon fans are advised to stick to old standbys, Gannett's My Father's Dragon (Random, 1948) and Grahame's The Reluctant Dragon (Holt, 1983). Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Pub . Lib .
