Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke
From Heather: I have really enjoyed Cornelia Funke's books lately. All the ones I've read have been really long, but worth every page. This one is no different. The story is fun to explore. I never thought I would like books about dragons but it sort of works for me. Firedrake happens to be a wonderful dragon! :)
Sorrel the brownie sort of drove me a little nuts. She's not very nice, always grumpy and sarcastic. But Ben I absolutely loved. Firedrake and Sorrel find him alone in an abandoned warehouse in London and he joins them on their journey to find the Rim of Heaven. It's a wonderful book, if a bit long. And probably about an age 10 and up sort of book.
