Premise: When college student David Rain rents a room in an unusual boardinghouse full of clay dragons, he has no idea that they, along with some lively squirrels, will help jump start his writing career.(King County Library)
Opinions:This is a fascinating and enjoyable read for any young reader. The imagery comes alive and the story carries your along. The author does an incredible job in giving his characters distinct and wonderful personalities. It is an easy read, and one that I hope will create within anyone the desire to read more by this author and hope to one day learn how he makes his characters come so alive with seemingly so little effort. I look forward to reading the other books in this series and hope that you do as well.
