5.0 / 7.0

I love how funny and entertaining this guide is. As it’s not set up as an actual story, but more information about different dragons, this is a perfect, fun read to read a few a day or all at once! It’s also super great quality. This book is a companion to the How To Train Your Dragon series, but it doesn’t necessarily need to be read with them. If you have a hesitant reader, this book could be great, as it’s full of illustrations and fun facts about dragons instead of being a normal chapter book with a text-filled story. If it’s interesting to a hesitant reader, they might end up wanting to read the entire series!
