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.

A unique perspective

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, the story itself has so many layers and depth. It has beautiful themes of acceptance, friendship, and growing pains. It balances that with adventure and suspense and a bit of magic.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Dragon's Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans?

When the old dragon begins to soften toward her new human.

Have you listened to any of Susan Denaker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. It took me a moment to adjust to this reader. At first, she was not my favorite. She did not seem like the right voice for a children's novel. However, I would encourage you to hold out because as the story continues she becomes the perfect fit.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Oh Winnie...
