Wheras the last book, The Dragon of Lonely Island was a collection of stories with various life lessons for the three children, this book is a bit more focused. A millionaire has stopped at Lonely Island while the children are there on vacation and seems sure that there is something on the island. Out of worry for Fafnyr, the children are trying to decide who to trust, what to do with their uncertainty and what to fight for; fortunately for them, Fafnyr's stories this time around deal with simil ...more

Incredibly, in the face of danger, the dragon still sleeps a lot, only taking breaks to tell stories.

This a children's book, clean, no bad language, no violence, or sex, kindle. The second book on the 'Lonely Island' series does a delightful job of showing life lessons in a wonderful setting. The dragon has three heads and three stories to tell, Hanna, Zacrey, and Sarah Emily have wonderful adventures with Fafnyr, the three-headed dragon.

My 8 year old son loves this story. He read it in class and came home asking if he could buy it for his kindle. Of course, I would never say no about reading. Thanks for writing a book that is so engaging and makes children want to read. Age appropriate and exciting is a hard combination some times especially for little boys.

This book was well written. I just wanted the dragon to do what dragons do--breath fire and eat people. This three-headed dragon was too well mannered, baked bread, and was a vegetarian. Good Grief. Much like wussy vampires that only drink animal blood.

I liked this book. It was a cute read and would be great for children of all ages. I learned that just beacuse something seems like it may be bad dose not mean that it will still turn out that way.
