   Great for 7 year old
These books are great, my 7-year-old enjoys them. I've heard that the series gets a little out of hand around book 22. My 7 year old doesn't need to read about that right now so for us, the series will stop at book 22.
   Delightful series!
I bought a few books from this series for a 7 year old neighbor. He has had trouble developing reading skills. These stories are perfect, engaging, and easy enough that he wants to learn to read them by himself.
   Fine- Except for one thing....
Great, not fine. Didn 't like the chapter where Drake is encouraged to keep secrets from his family and his mother in particular. To me, this is not a great message. The entire chapter could have been left out, omitting the message, and it would have made NO difference to the story as a whole. I read the book before I read it to my children. Glad I read it. I skipped the chapter just for the sake of it.
   Wonderful as a read aloud and for independent reading.
My three year old loves to read these books. They are fun, but also easy to follow. The series is a great read aloud for kindergarten through 2nd great and a great read-alone book for 1st through 3rd, depending on individual children's development. Aloud : Talk about books, ask questions, and you 'll raise a reader. These are even more loved than the Magic Treehouse series, which is also great for young children.
   Not bad, not great... but willing to continue with the series
From a literary perspective? Meh... not an entirely imaginative or original story. The writing leaves much to desire. For example, there are many occasions where each sentence is the exact same length. The text lacks variations in structure, making it dull to read loud to my six-year-old. That said, I imagine it would be easy for someone new to reading chapter books to tackle independently. Additionally, my six-year-old is loving looking at the story and listening to the illustrations.
   Not impressed
After reading all the great reviews, I bought this. I thought my 7 year old son would love this book, as he loves magic treehouse books, etc. First, I didn 't realize that the pictures were in black and white, which was the first negative. Plus, the hard to pronounce names were a turn off as well. And how the story started was even for me kind of weird. After a few nights of trying and also reading to his younger sister, who was not into it either, he could not get into it. Moving on. Moving on.
   Great first chapter book
My first grader of six years old wanted to read a chapter book. This was his first chapter book ever, and he enjoyed it. We plan to read more from this series. We plan to read more from this series. My son generally does not like anything bad or anything with “scary ” guys. This book has a “ bad ” part where the main character had a bad dream. There is also another part at the end that made him a little nervous, but he was hooked on the story at that point. There were no “bad guys ” in this book is great for 1-2 grade readers to read aloud or to themselves. It is also a good book to read to children who are not quite ready yet to read on their own. My almost five year old loved listening to the story. The chapters are long, about 6 pages short and have pictures.
   Dragon master
My son love to read this book, this was the first book he read fast as a star, he love adventure and history. This year we plan to read more books to learn more words. We think that Tracey is a good writer.
   My son doesn't enjoy reading but has liked this series
My son does not enjoy reading, but liked this series. Branches Publishing has done a good job for early readers '', I think.
   Great Story for young readers
I ordered this book together with 1and3 from Eerie Elementary for my 1st grader who is on the spectrum. He absolutely LOVES this story and has started begging me to order the rest. I can 't wait to buy them for him. Although explaining to him the concept of preorder was a tad difficult, hah, I love spending money on books and having my children beg for them.
