The 6YO told me I should give this book a six stars out of five. I did my best.

This second book was a lesser success in our family. Even my 6-year-old thinks that there is something wrong with the plot. The heroes didn't get what's going on, have been manipulated all book without even questioning it, and won everything at the end. I hope the next one is better.

In The Dragon in the Driveway, St. George is back, although he really doesn't make an appearance until the end of the book. You know that he is out there performing horrible deed, you just don't get to see him right away. He is a nasty piece of work, but that is what makes him a magnificent villain. Being a tree hugger, I was quite upset with him when he was bulldozing down all the trees in the forest. That, in my opinion, is just wrong.

Emmy is now a month old and a lot bigger than she was in th

This is the second book in the Dragon Keepers series by Kate Klimo and John Shroades. We discovered this series by chance during a library visit and my oldest is enthralled. She read the first two book almost nonstop until she finished them and we've quickly put the next books in the series on hold at our local library. She really hopes that more will be published soon!

I found the book to be a quick, entertaining read. It's a great series to introduce children into the sci-fi/fantasy genre and h

Check out my other reviews, discussions and link ups at Fantasy of the Silver Dragon.

In this book we get to meet dryads and hobgoblins, as well as old friends and enemies. I loved how Daisy and Jesse went from thinking the hobgoblins must be evil because they were so ugly, to being friends and finding them kind of cute.

Emmy is larger now, and just as adorable. She's speaking in full sentences, but with her own twists and flair. She's also learning new magics, especially if they help her get her

Jesse, Daisy, and their dragon Emmy mare back in this new book in the Dragon Keepers series. Emmy has a hard time remembering to be an English sheepdog. A disguise is necessary to protect her from the evil St. George. Speaking of, he's keeping a low profile. Jesse and Daisy haven't seen him in days. They decided to check up on him. He's apparently abandoned his ruse as a college professor. Discovering what St. George is up to leads the Dragon Keepers and their dragon on an adventure. They meet d ...more

I sure hope this series continues and by the way this second book ended - it looks like it will :-) I like this book even better than the first (Dragon in the Sock Drawer). Elements of the first story which seemed unimportant were focal to the story in Dragon in the Driveway. In my opinion, this book is written better than the Secrets of Droon and better than most of the Magic Tree House books (the Merlin Missions are very good :-) There is more substance and more room in the pages for a better ...more

The Dragon In The Driveway
The Dragon in the Driveway by Kate Klimo is part of the dragon keepers series. Jesse and Daisy are the protagonists in this series.

They are on their way to find their enemy, Dr. St George-a dragon slayer in disguise. They quickly go to the college he “ works “ at and can’t find him in his office. Plus to add insult

(Genre:Children's Fiction/Fantasy) The sequel to "The Dragon in the Sock Drawer", this one was not quite as good as the first (for an 10 year old hasn't read it yet and given me his opinion. He will probably like it just fine). There was one particular action sequence that just didn't make a lot of sense to my husband and I, but maybe that is because we are adults. In this adventure, the evil St. George has disappeared from his office/lab at the college and something strange is happe ...more
Brilliant! I fell in love with the first book of the Dragon Keepers series, and I loved the second one too! Like the first book, I couldn't stop reading this one, and it had me laughing through every chapter.

This book caught me a little bit off guard, only because it was a LOT heavier on the fantasy side of things compared to the first book. But that's fine! Just in comparison to the first book, it was a lot different in that way.

I'm thoroughly enjoying this series, and I'd recommend it to any c

The second installment of the Dragon keepers series does not disappoint. The stakes are higher for the kids as they try to protect their growing dragon from the evil Sir George. Lots of adventures with a fantastic trip underground to meet the goblins. (I love goblins - see also The Princess and the Goblin and the world's funniest goblin (or dwarf come to think of it) in the Artemis Fowl books).

I can't wait to read the next one!

I read this book and found it to be much better them the first one, but I'm not saying that I did not like the first one, I loved the first one. And this book really opened the background, the author really had you thinking about gold mine town. Jesse & Daisy were not staying in one place, no they where running every were, from dell to miss Alodie then to there house. This book really made you think, & that is one of the reasons I loved it.

Cute story about a dragon and the two kids who are assigned to be its "Dragon Keepers." My daughter Loves, Loves, Loves this series. This one features Dryads and Hobgoblins, along with Jesse, Daisy, and the evil St. George.

I thought this one was a little less believable, but my daughter didn't notice.

I really love this series ans in this one it really turned up the fantastical referances with the hob goblins and tree spirits. The villain is so evil so perfect for a children's book. While adults like an evil villain we always hope there is a reason why he is evil and that he has some good but for children who like things in clear good/evil categories, this is a perfect book.

I read this book out loud to my 5 year old. I'm pretty sure it's geared towards a slightly older child, but Carson picked up most of it. I think it would be a super fun 8 year old to read alone... cute story for a child, but I found myself a little bored.

Funny and very well written! It was equally if not better than the first! Kate Klimo is very talented!

A really fun book aimed at 3rd & 4th graders. I don't mind looking in and enjoyed the trip with two ten year olds. BTW I checked out book 1 from my library just to see what I missed.

Jesse and Daisy continue thier care of Emmy. They also learn more about St. George and some of their neighbors. If you liked Dragon in the Sock Drawer you'll need to keep reading.
