*I received a copy for review from the author.*

Such a great story, and well told! I really enjoyed this one, and loved the narrator's storyteller style. Crimson wants a friend, and finds one in Princess Penelope. They work together and make friends and enemies as they try to protect Penelope's kingdom.

The audio version was a joy to listen to, and reminded me of story time in second grade. Great for preteens and middle grade readers, as well as older readers who enjoy a fun fantasy!

Love, Love, Love the story, the writing, so engaging, descriptive and captivating. Super fun for any age as we all don't really grow up inside. Your children will love it as my daughter did too.

This is a great book for children and young teens. I think they would love this book teaching lessons of kindness! The story was great from beginning to end and kept me intrigued from beginning to end! Crimson the dragon finds friendship and happiness with the help of a fairy in the story. Would make a great bedtime read for parents to read their children.
