Ten-year-old cousins Jesse and Daisy have always wanted something magical to happen to them. So it's a dream come true when Jesse's newly found thunder egg hatches and a helpless, tiny (but very loud) baby dragon pops out. Jesse names the bright green dragon Emmy, short for Emerald.

Soon the two kids are at Emmy's beck and call, trying to figure out what to feed her. An Internet search leads them to the library and then back to the Internet, where they find a strange Web site called foundadragon.org. Here Jesse and Daisy discover that the little dragon's hatching means that they are now Dragon Keepers, and not only do they have to feed Emmy but they also have to keep her safe from the villainous Saint George, who has kept himself alive over centuries by drinking dragons' blood.

In The Dragon in the Sock Drawer, the first in a new series, author Kate Klimo has cleverly imagined what it would be like if a couple of modern-day kids had to raise a dragon. Download and start listening now!

    " We listened to this one as an audiobook in the car on a trip. LORD BLESS audiobooks! Anyway, on audio, this was easy to understand and lent itself to an audio telling. Maybe about 3 hours long? The kids are 5 and 10 and enjoyed it. That was what mattered. Adults are not the target audience. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/19/2014

    " A cute story about two cousins who find and protect a dragon. I liked the commitment to their 'pet', friendship, and academic approach to problem solving. Emmy is very cute. My book clubbers (4th grade) really did enjoy this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Dickson | 1/16/2014

    " Wonderful bedtime read-aloud for elementary aged kids grade 3 and up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/12/2014

    " This is a great little story for the in-between age where kids can almost read by themselves, but still enjoy being read to. It's a chapter book that will keep their interest from beginning to end, even if it's read at the pace of a chapter a night. I really enjoyed reading what happened when cousins Jesse and Daisy discovered a "thunder rock," a geode that turned out to hatch a baby dinosaur. The plot is simple and fun, and all the characters except the one (very) bad guy are nice, enjoyable people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/3/2013

    " I read this to my children, who are ages 11 and 6. They LOVED it, and so did I. It was a great read-aloud. I was delighted by how engaged my kids were with this story. I wasn't aware that it is book one of a series and am excited to find the second book the next time we go to the library. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mom | 5/7/2012

    " This book about Emmy and her keepers is sweet and enchanting. The children's misadventures as they learn how to care for their baby dragon "in real time" makes for great reading. Emmy the dragon is cute and funny. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynn | 2/18/2012

    " grs. 2-4? Definitely for younger readers or listeners. I do not think that this would appeal to students above grade 4. "

    " The kids loved it, but they're not picky. Strange that they were introduced to St. George as a villain before they knew him as a hero. They were a bit confused when I read them the story of St. George and the Dragon. "
