Product Description

Review

Booklist, May 15, 2012:
"Featuring humor, suspense, and an exotic undersea setting filled with wonders, dangers, and fantastical beings (including water-zombie merpeople, kelpies, and selkies), this is an entertaining read that series followers will especially enjoy. A symbol of a dragon’s footprint appears throughout and lets readers know to visit www.thedragonkeepers.com for more information about the magical world."

About the Author

KATE KLIMO grew up in the little town of Sea Cliff, with the Stenson Memorial Library just down the street from her house. She got her first wallet when she was eight, not for money but to hold her library card. She can still remember exactly where on the shelves her favorite books of fantasy sat. In Middletown, New York, where she and her husband Harry raised their three sons, the library is housed in a wonderful old railway station-and from there, she and her family have taken many memorable trips.

Loved The Dragon Keepers! June 24 2012
By K. Worrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Loved it! Will definitely be giving to my 5th and 6th graders for them to give it a spin. There are two main characters (a boy and a girl -- very important to my kids, especially my son who doesn't really care to read stories which contain an all girl cast or simply a girl main character) and a dragon! Loads of other magical creatures throughout the book. A bit of nautical terminology for the kids to learn if they don't already know it and loads of action for both girls and boys, magic, mermaids and zombies all in the same book - can't beat it!

If you're looking for something different and fun for your middle school age child to read this summer, this would be a great book for you to try out! I hope that you love this book as much as I did! I am certainly going to go back to find out how the whole dragon story began.

Cute Middle Grade Title May 22 2012
By K. M. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the fifth in the Dragon Keepers series. There is also a website - thedragonkeepers.com - with a complete guide to the world of the Dragon Keepers. Young fantasy fans will enjoy these further adventures of Jesse, Daisy and their dragon Emmy. This time the kids are visiting their grandmother, Polly, who has an inn near the sea. They discover a second dragon's egg by the sea and are swept into a battle to control it before the egg hatches. And the egg is nearly ready to hatch!

This one has lots of undersea adventures when Jesse and Daisy grow gills and have their legs turned into tails. The get to explore and undersea world complete with selkies, mermaids, kelpies, and other magical creatures. The also spend time aboard a sunken ship named the Golden Dragon.

The villain of the story is the dreaded Mermage who is the worlds largest sea cucumber. And, even though he is not able to move, he creates a real sense of menace in the story.

I think that this series would be especially good for upper elementary students who like the combination of fantasy and adventure. I also like the friendship between Jesse and Daisy and the way that they care for their dragon Emmy. They was also a lot of challenging vocabulary in this story because it was filled with nautical terms and other new vocabulary.

Not as good as the others July 9 2012
By Kirsten O'Beirne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This series has been a favorite read-aloud choice for my daughter (8) and I for a while now. We were excited that the book's release date coincided with our summer vacation trip and were looking forward to reading it while we were away. Unfortunately this was our least favorite of the series thus far. It seemed more jumbled and uneven than the other books. I found the "surfer speak" very distracting and artificial. When Daisy and Jesse eventually had actual conversations with Coral and Reef, some of the slang disappeared thank goodness. The dragon feet pointers to the web site seem very gimmicky and not very useful - a glossary would be better. The new web page isn't very good.

If you haven't read the other books in the series, start with book 1, Dragon in the Sock Drawer. It is a terrific series which will hopefully get back on track.

Great boy romping fun. April 27 2014
By D. McGill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've read the whole series to a couple homeschooled boys and each time they can't wait for the next book. This darling dragon series gave otherwise non-readers and interest in books and reading. I have seen so many children quit reading because it was too much work to "picture" the scenes and too easy to turn to video games. But I found this dragon and her Keepers really kept the boys (6 yrs and 8 yrs) on the edge of their seats. Not to mention the interest in other fields it sparked. Oceanography, sunken treasure, minerals and geodes, boats and seacraft, mermaids and mythology magic. A thing is mentioned in this book and they boys just have to go and look up more information on that. Now isn't that what every parent and educator wants in a novel? I say yes.
