Although dragon keeper is the first book I have read from Carole Wilkinson, she is now one of my favorite authors. She has brilliantly captured my imagination of ancient China. By reading this jewel of a novel I was immersed in the beautiful descriptions of the colours, texture and smells of the context. I was captured and utterly intriged by the adventures of a young yet brave chinese girl and her new and unorthodox dragon friend. This book is for anyone who craves adventure in a book that richly describes an unknown part of our world.
