The Dragon Masters series is How to Train Your Dragon meets the Dragon Slayers' Academy!

In the first book in this fully-illustrated series, 8-year old Drake is snatched up by King Roland's soldier and taken to the castle. He is to be trained as a Dragon Master. At the castle, he is joined by three other young Dragon Masters-in-training: Ana, Rori, and Bo. The Dragon Masters must learn how to connect with and train their dragons - and they must also uncover their dragons' special powers. Does Drake have what it takes to be a Dragon Master? What is his dragon's special power?

Lots of fun! Has elements of Harry Potter, but at a super accessible level: Young Drake is removed from his humdrum life digging onions and swept away to the castle to become a Dragon Master.

Fantastic series! My 4 year old loves these books and can't get enough of them. We've read all four books in the series and he wants me to read them all over again.

My 8 year old son enjoyed this very much. We will read the rest of the series. I highly recommend the BRANCHES books from Scholastic, they have brought my son back from a steady decline in a desire to read.

The first short novel I could get my 7 year old son to read. I actually had to tell him to stop to do his homework. Like the previous posters said, please get the remaining books in the series!
