Publisher's Summary

Firedrake, a young dragon, receives a frightening warning one night: Humans are planning to destroy the valley in which he lives! All the dragons must flee. Their only refuge is a place above the clouds called the Rim of Heaven, which may not even exist. Firedrake boldly volunteers to go ahead first. As he embarks on his journey, he meets Ben, a runaway boy. Together, the boy and dragon make their way toward the Rim of Heaven, all the while running a step ahead of Nettlebrand, a monster who will stop at nothing to hunt down Firedrake. Their quest will truly become an adventure like no other.

EXCELLENT!!!

I could not stop listening to this audio! If you like Harry Potter and Artimis Fowl then you must listen to this book. I have not always been a fan of Brendan Fraser, but he completely changed my mind, he brought the characters to life. I hope that Cornelia Funke has him read the next book. This book was one of my favorites of the year!

Best narrator ever!

I love Cornelia Funke's books and her writing doesn't disappoint. The characters are unique in their blend of original fantasy and realism, exemplified in the Brownie Sorrel. However, I was completely blown away by the quality of Brendan Fraser's narration! He must have imitated 10 different accents, added completely realistic sound effects and generally made the whole story come to life so that there wasn't a dull moment! I look forward to listening to anything he narrates. Overall, highly recommended for all ages!
