This is a cute introduction to the dragons of Chris D'Lacey's The Last Dragon Chronicles. The book takes place before The Last Dragon Chronicles first book, The Fire Within, and features Liz Pennykettle and her young daughter Lucy. Lucy is afraid there is a monster in her bedroom, and her mother soothes her fears by making a special guard dragon named Gruffen. Like all the Pennykettle dragons, this dragon comes to life, but only for Lucy, her mother, or when no one is watching. As for Gruffen, he does his job well, keeping Lucy safe.
I am a fan of The Last Dragon Chronicles, so revisiting the characters before the series started is thrilling. Even if you haven't read The Last Dragon Chronicles, you can read this new series about the dragons. I thought it was adorable and a good start for young readers.
