Cross-Eyed Dragon Troubles is, quite simply, one of the worst books that I've ever read.

I enjoyed a number of things about this book, including the descriptions of places, the personalities of both the major and minor characters in the book, and the social dynamics between characters.

I’ll recommend it to my daughter as soon as she indicates any interest in reading a book ...more
