Raising Dragons: Dragons in Our Midst #1

The kids at school call Billy "Dragon Breath" for good reason. His breath is bad! It isn't the normal, morning-mouth bad; it's the hot-as-fire, "don't-you-dare-get-near-me" bad. And hearing "Dragon Breath" ringing in his ears, he constantly tries to cool his oral volcano. Trouble erupts when his hot breath sets off the fire sprinklers in the boys' restroom at school, and his parents learn that they've kept their secret for too long. Billy finally discovers the secret. His father was once a dragon!

Publisher's Summary

The kids at school call Billy "Dragon Breath" for good reason. His breath is bad! It isn't the normal, morning-mouth bad; it's the hot-as-fire, "don't-you-dare-get-near-me" bad. And hearing "Dragon Breath" ringing in his ears, he constantly tries to cool his oral volcano. Trouble erupts when his hot breath sets off the fire sprinklers in the boys' restroom at school, and his parents learn that they've kept their secret for too long. Billy finally discovers the secret. His father was once a dragon!

Now that's a piece of news a guy doesn't deal with every day! Billy feels betrayed, alien, lost. When his father reverts to his dragon form, and they're both chased by dragon slayers, he learns to trust his father again, battling the slayers with weapons of steel and spirit. Bonnie, an orphan, tries to find a home, someone to love her, even though she feels like a freak because of a body feature that she calls a deformity, her dragon wings, inherited from her now dead dragon mother. She discovers that her love for others and her faith in a Creator hold the answers she is looking for.

    "Not great, but not bad"

    Plot works pretty well, though the ending suffers from "sequelitis." Lots of Christian allusions/symbolism, not very well-elucidated but not obnoxious. We listened during a family driving trip; my eight-year-old was enthralled and the adults reasonably entertained.

    "very predictable"
    What disappointed you about Raising Dragons?

    the reader... no depth in charters emotions


    Would you ever listen to anything by Bryan Davis again?

    no... i like kids stories but his story was very predictable... the excitement just wasn't there...


    What didn’t you like about the narrator’s performance?

    the pace he reads at...


    Any additional comments?

    for me the reader inability to add depth to the characters what did it in for me...

    Story
    "Great book for middle school + boys"

    This is a good Christian book for middle school + boys and girls but definitely a boys adventure.
    All my boys loved it no matter what age, and my daughter and I enjoyed it too. It's adventure and some crazy scenarios on kidnapping and attempted murder with a wholesome Christian storyline on leaning on God.
    It has the storyline of Merlin (as a prophet), King author and dragons.
    This audio had some glitches where it repeated itself but either audio or book were eagerly devoured by my kids who re-listen after reading it.

    What made the experience of listening to Raising Dragons the most enjoyable?

    The book made you want to keep listening. It was well written and I loved how they were able to make reference to God.
