A creak sounds in the dragon Miss Drake’s den and a human walks in. This human named Winnie and Miss Drake have the adventure of their lives in A Dragon’s Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans. Winnie barges into Miss Drake’s den the day after her great-aunt Amelia's funeral. Winnie thinks that Miss Drake is her pet, but Miss Drake thinks that Winnie is hers. Miss Drake and Winnie head to a shop for magicals, such as dragons and spirits. Winnie sees amazing creatures and wants to draw them. They get a sketchbook for Winnie to use, but there was magic inside! The magic causes the sketchings to spring from the book. All of the creatures Miss Drake and Winnie capture seem very afraid to go back to the book. When the pair corner Miss Drake’s double, she tells them that a creature that Winnie drew called a pemburu eats magic and gets larger. With a magic contest coming up, this could mean trouble. How will Miss Drake and Winnie capture the pemburu before it becomes too big to fit in the book?



This book was exciting and touching. There are scenes where the readers end up on the edge of their seats, but there are also scenes that warm the heart. It’s a mix of adventure and romance. There’s also some sad parts, like when Winnie was at her Great-Aunt’s funeral. I would recommend this book to boys and girls that like dragons, but accept a little romance. I would also recommend this book to people that liked the How To Train Your Dragon series or movies.
