Publisher's Summary

Cora's a young girl with two dreams: to be a dragon jockey when she grows up and to own a pet dragon now. She constantly buys "egg packs" at the dragon emporium in hopes that one will hatch into a rare pet-sized dragon, but only gets short-lived mayflies. However, when an unexpected egg does develop into something new, Cora may be over her head.

    Story
    "Every child wants a pet dragon"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Cora and the Nurse Dragon to be better than the print version?

    I believe audio is becoming the choice method for people too busy to read a book, but I still love to turn pages and I'm sure kids do too. The producer of this book was very good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    From grandparents who sang "Puff the Magic Dragon" to the parents who grew up with "Pete's Dragon," we each have had a dream at some point of coming face to face with a mild-mannered dragon who would befriend us. Cora and her friends live in a world where dragons are common house pets, and the larger ones have replaced horses at the races. What a delightful world it is, filled with dragons as small as a Mayfly to those the size of a house cat. But there are the rare larger dragons and kids can be involved in a lottery game to see what type of dragon they will get for their precious coins. The problem is that the eggs typically only produce the Mayfly dragons who live a very short life. The laws are meant to eliminate dragons in the wild and support the lavish lifestyles of the wealthy by making them a commodity. I loved the fact that Cora and her friends were able to see the injustices created by the adults and their dedication to protecting those things meant to be wild.


    What about Sheri Sheridan’s performance did you like?

    The performance was good, but I felt like it lacked the kind of excitement a young person would feel reading this story. It was a solid performance, but I could only give it four stars because I couldn't feel the excitement in her voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was touched so much by the moment when the bully showed his weak side. Anything more would be a spoiler.


    Any additional comments?

    I had purchased the ebook several months ago, but hadn't had a chance to read it yet when the author offered an audible code. The timing was perfect because I was going to have some eye surgery and wouldn't be able to work for a few days. This is my honest review of the audio book.

    Story
    "Pet Dragons? Yes, please."
    Would you listen to Cora and the Nurse Dragon again? Why?

    Yes, it is a very fun listen. I love the concept this author has for dragons. It's much like a lizard or a mouse in our world. It's the common pet that every child wants to have. The catch? They're the size of dragonflies, well, most of them. I expect to listen to this again if the rest of the series comes to audible.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cora and the Nurse Dragon?

    When she first discovers the dragon is a nurse dragon, and its attention to the eggs.


    What about Sheri Sheridan’s performance did you like?

    She did a fantastic job, both getting excited at the right moments, and clear narrative. I was very happy with the narrator.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Would you like a pet dragon? The size of a dragonfly, or a large cat? Hatch an egg to find out.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a fun listen, a story that reflects on friendship, bullies, and the desire to do good. I forsee this being a fantastic series.
