Whenever I read Yep, I think, yep, this is sure good! But I didn't really like Thorn- for one thing, most human heroes would have done what he did-and the Chinese lore had some mistakes-for one thing, Chinese dragons use magic to fly, not wings!(They don't have wings, either.) And their pearls are in their mouths...and they can turn into clouds to rain water...and Shimmer doesn't sound like a Chinese name. And Monkey King's master was not born old! Nor was he called the Old Boy. IF you are looking for a book that's just a little above average,that's slightly bland, with average characters, average boring writing style and great plot ruined by not enough hmmmmm, work, care, then this is it. If you are looking for a book that is deep, thoughtful, and relates to you and manages to be an engrossing story,too, then check out Dragonwings, Child of the Owl, and Thief of Hearts. Not this.

Humans are usually thought of as the superior creatures to dragons and magicians. But in this book, the tables turn and humans move from the shotgun seat to the back of the bus. Dragons become invinceable creatures. Dragons have their problems too in this book: evil magicians, powers that can be stolen. We liked this book because anything could happen in this fantasy world and because there was the interesting twist that humans were inferior to all other races. We recommend this book for adventurous readers who don't feel the need for humans to be the best. The Newton Boys Reading Circle (Ben, Danny and David)

Thorn is like any other fantasy hero. Shimmer is not a Chinese name. Chinese dragons have no wings, and use magic to fly. Their pearls are in their mouth. Monkey King's master was not born old, nor was he called the Old Boy. The plot could have been expanded on, and given depth. Instead, we get the bare bones. IF you are looking for a slightly above average book, with typical characters and boring writing style and ruined plot from work/care malnutrition...pick this up. If you are looking for a deep book that lets you relate to the characters and keeps itself from being boring, pick up Child of the Owl, Thief of Hearts, and Dragonwings. I'm off to get Dragonwings....and off to ditch this.

This was a great + awsome book. I first read this book for a book report at school and I read it in a day. I thought Lawrence Yep wrote Shimmer better than any author I've read whos wrote a dragon book. Civet wasn't a bad guy in my eyes, but a lost person. If you listen to her story closly, you could see she was a good person. Thorn was a strong boy. So read this book if you haven't.

Lawrence Yep did a wonderful job writing dragon of the lost sea. I could not put it down! I'm 13 and I get to read the last 15-20 minutes a day after everyone leaves I'm still sitting ther reading. He explained every little detail wonderfully. I dont read much but this book was great!!!!

Students in my sixth grade reading class thoroughly enjoyed this book. The fantasy meshes Oriental folklore and modern language in a very readable story. My students are now looking for additional stories by Mr. Yep.
