Publisher's Summary

Fans of How to Train Your Dragon will love this whimsical tale, the first in a series, by a Newbery Honor winner, featuring pet "training tips" in each chapter.
Crusty dragon Miss Drake has a new pet human, precocious Winnie. Oddly enough, Winnie seems to think Miss Drake is her pet - a ridiculous notion!
Unknown to most of its inhabitants, the City by the Bay is home to many mysterious and fantastic creatures, hidden beneath the parks, among the clouds, and even in plain sight. And Winnie wants to draw every new creature she encounters: the good, the bad, and the ugly. But Winnie's sketchbook is not what it seems. Somehow, her sketchlings have been set loose on the city streets! It will take Winnie and Miss Drake's combined efforts to put an end to the mayhem - before it's too late.

Wonderfully engaging story

Would you consider the audio edition of A Dragon's Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans to be better than the print version?

Yes, because Susan Denaker makes the dragon, Miss Drake come to life. I read the book first and then because I enjoyed it so much, wanted to listen to the audiobook. I am an adult and really enjoyed this audiobook. It is a delightful, heartwarming tale with adventure and mild suspense.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Miss Drake the dragon is delightful on so many levels. I like that her character is the narrator of the story.

Great performance OK book

I enjoyed listening to this book mostly because of the performance of the narrator, who made the book sound spectacular; she plays the many different characters in the book (different ages, different nationalities) convincingly and with a great charm.

I like children and early teen books as a way of escapism, but this one was a bit too slow, too unoriginal, and it reminded me of so many other stories we all know from books and movies. There was much talking and not much action or funny things for children.

The language used is on the posh side, well-learned kids will have no problem, others will need of their parents or a dictionary to read it (which is not a bad thing at all!).
