Dragon Rider

LoveReading View on Dragon Rider

Shortlisted for the Marsh Award 2006.

A terrific magical adventure that will set your imagination off on a rollercoaster of emotions and ideas. 

We were captivated and spellbound by the power of the story and the quality of the narrative and I’m confident that children from 8 upwards and adults too, will devour it.  You don’t have to be a fan of fantasy or of stories with dragons in it to love it.

Dragon Rider Synopsis

To be a Dragon Rider is surely every child’s wish – to fly on a dragon’s back to the highest mountains of the world, making lasting friendships along the way. This happens to Ben, an abandoned boy, who has been chosen by destiny to search for a legendary place of refuge for the last silver dragons on earth.

Dragon Rider has all the storytelling qualities we have come to expect from Cornelia Funke: an ‘old-fashioned’ story brimming with remarkable detail, imbued with a warm belief in humanity.
