The Lovereading4Kids comment

A wonderfully engaging fantasy set on a far-from-ordinary farm with a history as rich as Narnia. Readers will be taken on an extraordinary adventure and meet brilliantly imagined characters in this cleverly plotted first collaboration between one of the best-loved fantasy authors Tad Williams and Deborah Beale, author and former publisher. Packed with magical animals, lovers of Christopher Paolini’s Eragon will devour it as will anyone who wants a truly page-turning adventure. This hardcover edition is beautifully packaged with each chapter headed up by a wonderfully detailed illustration.

Synopsis

The Dragons of Ordinary Farm by Tad Williams, Deborah Beale

Tyler and Lucinda have to spend summer with their Uncle Gideon, a farmer. But when they arrive they discover that Ordinary Farm is no ordinary farm: there's a dragon, unicorns, a flying monkey... the place seems like an adventure. But when darker secrets surface will Tyler and Lucinda be able to save the dragons, the farm, and themselves?
