A Dragon’s Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans

$6.99 $6.29

Product Description

Fans of How to Train Your Dragon will love this whimsical tale, the first in a series, by a Newbery Honor winner, featuring charming illustrations and pet “training tips” in each chapter.

Crusty dragon Miss Drake has a new pet human, precocious Winnie. Oddly enough, Winnie seems to think Miss Drake is her pet—a ridiculous notion!

Unknown to most of its inhabitants, the City by the Bay is home to many mysterious and implausible creatures, hidden beneath the parks, a number of the clouds, and even in plain sight. And Winnie wants to attract every new creature she encounters: the good, the bad, and the ugly. But Winnie’s sketchbook isn’t what it sort of feels. In some way, her sketchlings have been set loose on the city streets! It’s going to take Winnie and Miss Drake’s combined efforts to put an end to the mayhem . . . before it’s too late.

This refreshing debut collaboration by Laurence Yep, a two-time Newbery Honor winner and a Laura Ingalls Wilder Award winner, and Joanne Ryder features illustrations by Mary GrandPré.

“With a black-and-white spot illustration opening most chapters, an engaging narrator, and a consistently fluid writing style, this title makes a fine dragon choice for readers.” –School Library Journal
 
“In this series launch, Yep and Ryder conjure up a world where dragons and humans interact, and the results are heartwarming and slightly funny.” –Publishers Weekly

Praise for A Dragon’s Guide to Making Your Human Smarter
“Yep and Ryder keep the magic coming with their whimsical fantasy, enhanced by Grandpré’s sweet drawings. The story positively vibrates with fun.” —Kirkus Reviews

” Lighthearted episodes of ordinary school lessons and field trips, illustrated by GrandPré’s winsome spot art, are grounded by Miss Drake’s more serious encounters with the goons…a gratifying development as this buoyant, fantastical series continues.”—The Horn Book Review
