The Dragon Of The Month Club is the exciting first installment in a new book series that tells the story of Ayana Fall and Tyler Travers, two best friends who stumble across an extraordinarily magical book and soon find themselves enrolled as members of a very special and exclusive club – The Dragon of the Month Club.
On the thirteenth of every month a new dragon conjuring spell is revealed and the two friends attempt to summon the latest Dragon of the Month. The varieties are almost endless: Air Dragons, Paper Dragons, Fog Dragons, Waterfall Dragons, Rock Dragons, Tree Dragons – not to mention special bonus dragons for all the major holidays, including a particularly prickly Holly Dragon for Christmas.
But one day when a conjuring spell somehow goes wrong Ayana and Tyler find themselves unexpectedly drawn into a fantastical world of adventure based on the various books scattered all across Tyler’s messy bedroom. Travelling from one book-inspired world to the next with nothing to rely on but their wits and a cast of strange and exotic dragons at their disposal they must try to somehow find their way home again.
Drawing inspiration from some of literature’s most memorable stories – from 19th century German folktales to the streets of Sherlock Holmes’s London – the adventures of Ayana and Tyler bring these classic stories to life in delightfully strange and unexpected ways. Filled with fascinating detail and non-stop action these books will spark the imaginations of readers of all ages to inspire a life-long love of reading and seeking out books that are just a little bit off the beaten track.

What I thought:
I read this one with my son. We both enjoyed it. We read a chapter a night (sometimes two or three because he wanted more)! We couldn’t wait to see what adventures Tyler and Ayana would get into with the Dragon book. We are dragon fans in this family, so this book was right up our alley. I really liked how the main characters met and bonded in a library. At times, the dialogue was a little complex and wordy, and may have been difficult for my child to read alone. However since we were reading it together, we were able to discuss it together. I would recommend this one for older middle grade and up. My youngest child listened to some parts while I was reading it, but you could tell a lot of it went over her head.
I really hope this series continues because I think it could be really successful as a series.
I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
