Publisher's Summary

If Howard Morton and Freddie the Frog Killer were trying to hold you down so that Mary Lou Hutton could kiss you, you might run as fast as Jeremy Thatcher did the day he stumbled into Mr. Elives' Magic Shop.

And if you stumbled into that strange shop, you, too, might be asked to make a choice. What would you buy? The Chinese rings? The Skull of Truth? Or the dragon's egg?

And if you did buy the dragon's egg, what would you do when you found out you were supposed to hatch it?

Awesome!!

I love the read aloud. The voice makes me feel like I’m watching a movie. I just wish I could read along with the author. I think that could be something that Audible could add.

Why is Jeremy so quiet?

The story is great. Kid gets a dragon egg, hatches it, and then has to raise it while trying to have a normal 6th grader life.
The narration is also mostly good... except for the main protagonist. The volume for Jeremy is about half that of the other parts. I had to crank up my volume so the narrator was too loud just so I didn't miss Jeremy's parts.

Brilliant!

Bruce Coville spins another childhood classic packed with humor, life-lessons & adventure! He gives the tale a further dimension by reading it with his unique style- a must hear!
The only drawback is Jeremy's character is not recorded at the same volume as the rest of the cast
