Raising Dragons by Bryan Davis
Raising Dragons, a book by Bryan Davis, was one of the best books I have read this year. This Christian fantasy is about two kids named Billy and Bonnie who find out that their parents are dragons. They also learn that they have inherited their parent’s dragon abilities –Billy can breathe fire and Bonnie can fly. Shortly after their discovery, they discover that their principal is really an evil dragon slayer whose goal is to kill all dragons, which means them! Bonnie, who’s an orphan, runs away with Billy’s family on Billy’s dad’s airplane, the Merlin. The airplane eventually goes down and they all get separated, with Billy’s dad believed dead. Billy and Bonnie get stranded in the woods and they must work together to find a way out. Using their abilities, they manage to escape the forest, only to learn that Billy’s father was alive but had turned back into a dragon and the slayers are about to kill him. Will Billy and Bonnie save his father? Read Raising Dragons to find out!
