This was one of my favourite books as a child, and it stands up quite well to adult rereading. The world-building is still nearly as clever as I thought it was when I was eight, and while Ben and Beth are somewhat cardboardy characters, the various dragons and sheep have definite personalities. Ninety-Nine, especially, is rather charming.
