I'm glad the other reviews here are all 5 stars -- I definitely agree -- but they aren't very compelling. I think this book is a must-read for any child interested in fantasy. And I'll give away part of the plot, in hopes of convincing you. Two dragons from Wales decide (who knows why; dragons aren't usually curious) to travel to America and see some of the sites they have heard tourists mention. While there, they are seen and attacked by some humans and are forced to leave their unhatched egg behind when they escape. 100 years later the egg hatches and a new dragon (Orm) is sent from Wales, given the task of retrieving the hatchling as stealthfully as possible and without loss of human life.

From the human standpoint, a wonderful mystical object was discovered on the shores of a lake and the family has cherished and passed this unusual possession down through the generations. Henry Berg is the one who is there when it hatches and his mom (typical distant parent-teenager relationship) refuses to believe his story. He then comes up with a lie which is that he bought a new lizard at the pet store; she allows him to keep the baby dragon who he names Vincent. No one knows what kind of animal Vincent truly is. When the adult dragon shows up to retrieve the baby, all kinds of trouble starts...

The story has a good plot about respect for creatures other than ourselves and I love the ending where they (Henry and Millie, an adult friend who gets pulled into the fray) figure out a way to return the baby to the mountain of Wales where he belongs.

I read this book when I was in first grade with the help of my mother. My sister was 4 then and she just listened as we read aloud. We all enjoyed it very much. I made the mistake of trading it off to a friend in 3rd grade and am now sorry.
