Timothy Freshwater’s father can’t control him, his mother is always out of town, and now the boy too smart for his own good has been expelled from the last school in the city. After he meets Mr. Shen, a mysterious Chinese mailroom clerk at his father’s office, Timothy winds up in more trouble than he has ever gotten himself into.

It turns out the diminutive Mr. Shen is a dragon. Forced to take human shape for a thousand years, Mr. Shen cannot resume his true form until he scales an ancient Dragon’s Gate during a festival for the 125th year of the dragon. Now Timothy finds himself Mr. Shen’s latest keeper: stalked by a ninja, and chased by a menacing trio of black taxicabs. And when Mr. Shen falls into the wrong hands, Timothy must rescue the dragon from a fleet of Chinese pirate junks. All hope seems lost until a strange-looking black brig with red sails called the Ironic Gentleman appears on the horizon. Relying on his own ingenuity and an annoying new ally, a girl called Alex, Timothy must take on the fleet and its evil commander, the Man in the Beige Linen Suit. Told in Adrienne Kress’s distinctive, sparkling prose, Timothy and the Dragon’s Gate is a humorous and astounding story about a boy who ultimately uncovers his own ability to love and opens his heart to the world around him.

    " This is a fun filled action packed adventure about a boy who has been kicked out af all the schools in his city and a dragon named mr Shen. it is a fast paced book with excitment around every corner. a little bit slow to start but all in all a very good book!!!!!!!!:-) "

    " Between 3 and 4 stars. Liked it, but I didn't think it was as good as the last book. Lots to love about Adrienne's writing style though. "

    " Kress' quirky writing is refreshing. She lost me for a while in the middle, when the connection between Timothy and the dragon was not believable enough. The end was fun and left me satisfied. "

    " Unfortunately, I read this before I read Alex and the Ironic Gentleman, but I wasn't too lost. :) I really enjoyed this book--it was funny and sweet and full of adventure. Kress creates interesting characters. I'm looking forward to reading about Alex now! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily20 | 3/19/2012

    " This book was quite good at the beginning and the end but in the middle it was a bit slow. It is about a eleven year-old boy named,yep, Timothy. He has been kicked out of all the schools in the city but then he meets a super old dragon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 9/15/2011

    " While the audiobook was still engaging, I thought this story wasn't as good or as funny as Alex and the Ironic Gentleman. Plus there was no "Make Cold 1000". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 B | 4/26/2011

    " boys and girls grade 4-6 will enjoy- action packed, short chapters "

    " This is the second of the series by Adrienne Kress that I have read and I liked both of them a lot. Good adventure with both a male and female hero and heroine, not smarmy or too cutesy, just funny, smart and action-packed. My nieces and nephews would ahve loved these books when they were 10... "
