"A joy" - Booksellers NZ review of The Dragon Riders

"Having not read the previous two books in this series, I did wonder how this story would work on its own. Why I ever worried about that, I have no idea as the four-year-old I was reading this to fell in love with the idea of having a dragon for a pet. I got the distinct impression that if one was available at the local pet shop, she’d convince her mum to get her one immediately.

New Zealand’s native flora and fauna make a strong theme throughout The Dragon Riders, such as the flowering Pohutakawa and the native Karearea (Falcon), while the long-gone Pink and White Terraces also feature.

The illustrations are quite stunning, complementing the wonderful story. Being able to read this book to a child (that got right into the story asking so many questions), it was a joy to read out loud."
