Marvelous Midddle Grade Monday - The Dragon in the Sock Drawer

Marvelous Middle Grade Monday

Shannon Whitney Messenger decided it was time to give middle grade stories the attention they deserve, and "Marvelous Middle Grade Mondays" was born. 
 The Dragon in the Sock Drawer
by Kate Klimo
Goodreads Blurb:
TEN-YEAR-OLD COUSINS Jesse and Daisy have always wanted something magical to happen to them. So it’s a wish come true when Jesse’s newly found thunder egg hatches, and a helpless, tiny but very loud baby dragon pops out. Soon the two kids are at the dragon’s beck-and-call, trying to figure out what to feed her.

An Internet search leads them to the library, which leads them back to the Internet, where they find a very strange Web site called “” It is here that the cousins discover that the dragon’s hatching has designated them “Dragon Keepers” and that not only do they have to feed her, but they have to keep her safe from the villainous Saint George who has kept himself alive over centuries by drinking dragons’ blood.
My daughter LOVES this series. She devoured these books in a way that surprised even me. Curious, I tried one . . . so cute. Any dragon-loving middle grader (especially girls) will find this series irresistable. Jesse and Daisy are an adorable duo. Throw in a dragon named Emmy and you have a winner!

This series sounds so cute! I love it that the villain is St. George and the clever way he kept himself alive. I always liked dragons as a kid and so wanted to have one as a pet. :) Thanks for sharing this great series!
