This is personally my most beloved book. in fact, it is easy for me to say that it is the best I have ever read. This novel is the one and only book from my collection that I would ensure to save in the event of emergency (fire, flood, evacuation) and I have read this novel (and the rest of the Dragon series) over two dozen times since it has found it's way into my hands.

I feel that, in time, every reader will find an author that speaks the exact same language as they do... well Don Callander is

DNF — I got maybe twenty pages in. Standard old-school quest with an human unexpected flung in to a fantasy world (think The Dragon and the George or Silverlock) that I had picked up because the human character is nominally a librarian, but the book quite frankly bored me to tears.
Dragon Companion by Don Callander is a light-hearted, easy-going fantasy. Tom, a librarian, is suddenly transported to a magical, pseudo-medieval style world where he becomes a dragon’s companion, helps the king, and wins a girl.

The good guys have every kind of virtue; the bad guys don’t do anything too evil.

The tone of the books strikes exactly the right balance. It does not take itself too seriously; neither does it go too goofy. The humor is affectionate, rather than snarky. Dragon Companion

A Librarian entering a fantasy world...the common man entering a fantasy world is almost a genre in itself, but at first this guy doesn't want to save the world, he wants to organize their Library!

So much fun. I read that the books in this series are being re-released and I hope to locate the other two books in the trilogy at some time.

I have been trying to get into this book for years and finally did so. It was pretty amusing.

Really a cute book. Has an innoncent flair that reminds me of The Princess Bride in some ways. A fun world, really enjoyed the characters and their adventures.
