ARC provided by Random House Children’s via NetGalley for an honest review.
This second book in the series was just as sweet and adorable as the first one. The best part of this series is the diversity of the characters. The author also does a great job of weaving the different cultures of the main characters in to the narrative. This way kids are learning about these cultures and being entertained by the story as well.

We first met Kavita in book one, but she was a minor charact

Review copy: Digital ARC via Netgalley

I was so excited to get my hands on this sequel to the wonderful Dragons in a Bag. There simply aren't enough dragon fantasies for the early chapter book readers. And it is truly awesome to see more Black magic and Black history on our shelves.

These children are young and get themselves into all kinds of difficult situations, but they work together to solve their problems. So much of the book is about being in community with one anoth

I received an electronic ARC from Random House Children's Publishing through NetGalley.
Second in the series. This book picks up shortly after the first ends. The baby dragon left in our world has grown and won't fit in the small enclosure any longer. Kavita ends up telling her Aunty the whole story from stealing the dragon to the opening chapters. They set off on an adventure to help the dragon return home. Meanwhile, Jaxon is searching for a new gate and the missing dragon. His friend Vic

What a joy!
I read this in one sitting after a busy day. I was quickly absorbed by the story, the second in a series that picks up right where the first one ended. Kavita, Jaxon, Vik, Aunty and Kenny jump off the page with themes of family and friendship. The dragon at the center of the story grows and grows every time it eats something sweet, so there's an element of race against time to get it back to the magic realm.
It's Brooklyn and Queens, but Brooklyn and Queens with dragons! A tensi

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of The Dragon Thief, the sequel to Dragons in a Bag. After reading the first, I was delighted to get to read the sequel. It does not disappoint, in fact because Jaxon's little sister is such a handful, the suspense grows with her impulsivity towards her stolen secret. In the first book, Jaxon her broher's friend is given 3 baby dragons to care for, AND return to their alternative world. When one goes missing he knows who the culprit is, his precocious best friend ...more

A perfect continuation.

Just as sweet and magical as the first book. Jax has to retrieve and return the missing dragon, but the portals are no longer working and something is wrong with the magic, causing Ma and all the other adults to be unable to assist him.

What I love about these books are its many colorful characters. Like Brooklyn, this book has a variety of people of different shades and colors, and shows how sometimes the oddest looking people can be the nicest and most helpfu

earc from netgalley.

it was alright, but it wasn't anything special and it seems like it is a little younger middle grade book, but if someone likes a sweet, not overly scary dragon book, this would be one for you.

When I started this book, I didn't realize that it was the second in a series. I never read books out of order, but it explained why I felt like I was missing information. This is a relatively short middle grade fantasy novel that focuses on the theft of a baby dragon. I like that this book has themes of diversity, family, friendship, sacrifice, and so much more. I wouldn't say that this is the best book I've ever read, but I liked it enough to purchase the first in the series. I also really lik ...more

Kavita has a new pet named Mo. It's a dragon and it breathes fire! She deftly acquired it recently from a witch's apprentice who really should have been paying better attention to all three of the magical creatures in his charge. That apprentice was Jaxon, her brother Vik's best friend. It was Jaxon's job to deliver the dragons back to the realm of magic and when one went missing, he thought it might have been flying around Brooklyn, but it was actually with Kavita and she was desperately seekin ...more
