This is a wonderful story of a boy, a dragon, a brownie and a journey. As always Cornelia Funke writes in a way that opens your eyes to new worlds. Personally, I find Dragon Rider to be her very best writing. It is rare to find a story that balances great adventure without too much darkness to scare younger readers. Yet even teenagers and adults will find themselves drawn in and happy to count Ben, Firedrake and Sorrel among their friends. It is the vivid narration by Brendan Fraser that causes you to SEE the story in full color. This is not a story to be missed.
