Editorial reviews

Why You Should Download This Audiobook: With the publication of the English translation of The Thief Lord, German author Cornelia Funke burst onto US and UK best seller lists. In the #1 best seller Dragon Rider, she weaves a magical tale of a boy named Ben, a brownie named Sorrel, and Firedrake the dragon. Actor Brendan Fraser's narration is perfect for listeners aged 8+.

Publisher's summary

Firedrake, a young dragon, receives a frightening warning one night: Humans are planning to destroy the valley in which he lives! All the dragons must flee. Their only refuge is a place above the clouds called the Rim of Heaven - which may not even exist.

Firedrake boldly volunteers to go ahead first. As he embarks on his journey, he meets Ben, a runaway boy. Together, the boy and dragon make their way toward the Rim of Heaven, all the while running a step ahead of Nettlebrand, a monster who will stop at nothing to hunt down Firedrake. Their quest will truly become an adventure like no other.
