    " We recently read this book for bedtime and we loved it. It was one of those books that was so much fun for me to read and the kids were mesmerized with how each story was going to unfold. "

    " This is collection of short stories about dragons. Some of the dragons are good and some are bad,none are scary or gruesome. This book was written in the late 1800's (I believe) and formatted for ebooks by project gutenburg. I enjoyed this book, but I think today's kids will think it a little simple. The author puts a few references to good behavior in the stories that are charming. Probably good for a child aged 10-14. There are no illustrations in this free version. "
