   Mix of mischief, magic & friendship win the day
It's great for kids. The events shed light on how the friends can use their own talents in real life and care for family around them. I wanted to turn every page, especially in the second half of the book.

   Fantasy adventure tales & cultural identity done well!
I highly recommend Dragons in A Bag and The Dragon Thief by Zetta Elliott for your 8-12 year old kids or as a family read aloud. The writing in these two books is a little bit more complex but the themes are deep and meaningful. The three books follow the adventures of a group of kids who are navigating both real and fantastical realms while trying to help unsuspecting dragons. Both books touch on the issues of racism, injustice, suffering, slavery, persistence, overcoming fears, cultural identity, and family values in a very kid-friendly and meaningful way.

   Awesome book
Before I read it, I didn't think I would like it as much as I did it is the best book I've ever read.

   Energetic and fun
Very cute, Mr. D. Cowger said. It's great to see the story go on, said Blair. Got the first book for a work project and became invested in the story, had to know what happened there!

   A perfect continuation.
What I love about these books is that they have so many colorful characters. Plus, I learned some fascinating tidbits of history that I'd never heard of. They were having a great time hanging out with their friends and families, said Jax. It was a warm slice of pie from the colorfully-named Goin's Bakery. It's great to have such a good product on the market. It's a blast, said Blair, "and it's a lot of fun."
