"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.

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.
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.
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.
