All Dinkums wants is to be a real dragon, a fierce crimson-scaled firebreather like the ones living in the northern caves. Instead, Dinkums is pink, fuzzy, and cute--until Skye, a teen witch bored by school and ready for a challenge, finds a way to transform him. But Dinkums and Skye are both about to learn that being real is more complicated than they bargained for.

A witty, charming tale about a witch's tiny pet dragon who leaves his comfortable home with the hopes of becoming a large, fire-breathing, real dragon. Along the way, he gets a little help from a young, modern day witch in training who uses an iPod instead of a wand to cast her spells. As with all of Renee's stories, her words flow with poetic grace and her excellent, rich storytelling breathes new life into the fantasy genre. An entertaining, must read for people of all ages.
