Amanda | 6 comments I am trying to find a book that I read as a pre-teen.
The main character was a boy, who finds a dragon in a cave. The dragon might have been sick or injured. The boy and the dragon become friends. And I think the dragon pricked the boys hand and he grew a dragon scale on his hand.

Ben (browly) | 24 comments Was it The Dragon and the Thief by Gillian Bradshaw? An Egyptian boy decides to steal treasure from the tombs and finds a dragon hiding in one. I read it as a pre-teen and liked it, and only recently figured out what book it was. I don't remember the part about the scale on his hand, but it has been a long time and I can't remember the plot, other than the dragon is surprised the boy can't eat raw meat and has to cook it for him.

This sounds promising. I'll check it out. It's been a long time since I read it too. Thank you.
