This is the year of the dragon, more specifically, the water dragon. To continue a fun romp with books that are squirming with a dragon or two, I suggest THE DRAGON OF CRIPPLE CREEK by Troy Howell (Amulet/Abrams 2011, for readers 8 – 12.) . This tall tale takes place in the wild west of Colorado where there are both gold and dragons to be discovered. The feisty – but delightfully flawed – heroine, Kat Graham, finds several types of treasure besides a “real” dragon.
