Saving the Sun Dragon - Tracey West and Graham Howells - Dragon Masters #2

Saving the Sun Dragon
Dragon Masters #2
Tracey West (Author)
Graham Howells (Illustrator)
ISBN 9780545646253

This was the second book in this series my children and I have read together. My youngest two love the series. And for this book the oldest child and I took turns reading to the younger two. Making this series great for the whole family. As my children grow it is harder to find books that all three, girl, boy, girl like and will read together. It is wonderful that the oldest can help read to the younger two and that this book entertains all three. This series showed up in my recommended books because of reading some Dragon books by Chris d'Lacey and we gave them a try and there has been no looking back.

This second book in this series opens with fun and adventure, the dragons go out to fly. But things soon turn dark when Kepri the sun dragon becomes sick and almost falls from the sky. Soon the 4 dragon masters and their teacher Griffith are poring over books and scrolls trying to find a cure. Soon Worm the earth dragon reveals another of his abilities and the group is off to an adventure in Egypt. This is a story filled with spells, magic, a mysterious twin and more. A great tale. 

The illustrations by Graham are wonderful, the help support the story without being too scary. The embellishments on almost every page add to the stunning presentation. And combine that with well written stories and the book and series is a big hit. 

I cannot say enough how much my children love these books. They ask to read each night, and turn off the TV and devices in order to read earlier. They always ask for extra chapters. They even ask often when book 4 will be out and to see the cover of it. And what higher praise could be given to a book or series than children clamouring to read more, or read again. Another book that kids love.
