Firedrake, a brave young dragon, his loyal brownie friend Sorrel and a lonely boy called Ben are united as if by destiny. Together, they embark on a magical journey to find the legendary place where silver dragons can live in peace for ever. With only a curious map and the whispered memories of an old dragon to guide them, they fly across moonlit lands and seas to reach the highest mountains in the world. Along the way, they discover extraordinary new friends in unlikely places and a courage they never knew they had. Just as well, for the greatest enemy of all is never far behind them - a heartless monster from the past who's been waiting a very long time to destroy the last dragons on earth.Hide synopsis

With Harry Potter being all the rage right now, it is refreshing to find a good fantasy novel for children that does not come across as an imitator. Funke avoids the literary device of making all signs point to one particular assumption and then revealing at the very end that the exact opposite of that assumption is true. The storytelling is straightforward and noticeably free of gimmicks. There are several times when a character will plan out a strategy, implement the strategy, and the plan goes off exactly as the character expected. And yet, the story never feels predictable or boring, and the antagonist is genuinely frightening. Straightforward as this book is, it does not lack for suspense, and has a well thought-out plot. Thanks to this book and a few others, Cornelia Funke is my new favorite author.
