Excellent choice.
As a 5th grade teacher, I spend time reading books that my students have recommended. I really enjoyed this book. I kept reading it every night because of the enjoyable characters. The main character persevers in this book and you really fall in love with the plot, characters, and hidden messages. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys fantasy novels!!

Dragon Rider
Dragon Rider is an great book that keeps you in suspense. My favorite character in the book is Sorrell, the Brownie. Her funny comments, wit and humor had me laughing outloud.
I'd recommend this book to boys and girls alike. My 8 year old brother wants to read it next...So do I. More reason to buy another copy!

Fantastic
I'm a yr7 highschooler at the age of 12 and have not ever really enjoyed any books. My whole life I have been looking for a book that will suit me and I found it. Dragon Rider is absolutly Fantastic. I love it! I am also not a very good reader, but I read this one in like a week even though it has like 425-525 pages. That is really amazing 4 me. I read it so quickly cause it really creates a picture in your head and you don't want to put the book down. Its fantastic, it's a great read and something you will never forget.

Dragon Rider
I think this book is very intersting and adventurous since it is such a quest. This book is for everbody and for 7-111 although the book has quite a lot of words that some might not know. This book should be a award winner since it was written so well. I think everone would enjoy and love this book. Cornelia Funke is such a good writer, I would like to be like her.

Dragon Rider
i thought this book was amazing and it went lik this:
At the very beginning, a rat comes to the valley of the dragons, and warns the dragons that the humans were coming. All the dragons came outside and had a meeting about what they were going to do. Slatebeard, the oldest and wisest dragon, tells everyone that the humans were coming. He sends out Firedrake because he is the most talented and youngest dragon. Firedrakes best friend, Sorrel, also goes with him to go in search of a peaceful place were dragons could live in peace forever. [The rest of this review has been removed due to plot spoilers].
