Before Paolini's Eragon flew on to the scene, McCaffrey
set the standard for draconic fantasy. For me, she still does.
Her world of Pern will enthrall tween and teen readers
with an interest in fantasy and good decoding skills.
There is some emotional subtext, but emotions are usually
spelled out for the reader.
The White Dragon is the story of a lonely boy who
bonds with someone as unique as he is, someone who
happens to be a dragon.
For younger kids, I've written about My Father's Dragon
elsewhere on the blog.
New Year's Resolution: Ask for Help.
It's easy to comment on my blog. That means I have
to delete irrelevant stuff (I'm avoiding the potted ham
word here) all the time. I keep it easy because I want
you to comment with your thoughts, recommendations,
reviews, anything kids books related. But you haven't, have
you? I know you're busy, but please share if you can.
Otherwise, I may as well put in place all those hoops
to keep out the potted meat products that make commenting
elsewhere so time consuming.
Happy New Year!
