Dragon Rider

Cornelia is a huge fan of dragons. Dragon Rider is about a dragon (duh!). Young dragon Firedrake embarks upon a quest to find the Rim of Heaven, the mythical home of all dragons. He is accompanied by the brownie girl Sorrel and the human boy Ben. It turns out to be quite a dangerous journey during which they meet terrible foes like Nettlebrand, the Golden One, but also make new friends, like Professor Greenbloom and his family. But Cornelia won't give away any more . . .
