    A beautiful take on the Chinese dragon and the concept of dragon keepers. The story was gentle and beautiful and I would read this to my five year old son because there is nothing unsuitable contained. The concept of dragon keepers was beautiful and the way they have particular attributes that make them a keeper. I loved that it was exclusive to two families in China only and that it is educational for history and Chinese tradition and society. Young adult readers will learn without realising as they delve into a book that is all about a dragon!Read it to your children or give it to a competent young adult reader!

    I must admit to being disappointed with Dragon Dawn. While I enjoyed the story it seemed to be only a small fraction of what it could have been. A good portion of the book is not actually the story at all, but is a reference guide called the Dragon Alphabet, which tells some of the history of Dragons in China. It is a good idea and I found it informative, but having so much of the book filled with this general information takes away from the story itself. It feels almost as if the author was trying to fill space at the end of the book to make the story look and feel longer than it is and after having read Dragonkeeper I expected more from its prequel.The story, such as it was, was written well, but I would have preferred more to have been written about Danzi. There was so much history before his time in captivity and subsequent escape with Ping, I was expecting a great journey to be told within the pages of Dragon Dawn and instead I found what is mostly the diary of a few days of travel. Dragon Dawn is a good story that could have been made great with a little more time and effort… and a great many more pages of Danzi's history thrown in.

    ** 3.5 stars ** This book was just okay for me. It was a good enough read, and is only one hundred pages so I finished it quickly. But it is meant to be a prequel to the Dragonkeeper series, and because the book was so short I felt like the plot wasn't developed as well as it could have been and for me it really didn't add anything to the series.

    This book is a prologue for the Dragon keeper series. It is short enough, and you don't need to read this before the rest of the series. This book was written in a a way, were you will read it once and pick up some infomation, then the next time you pick up more. I think that kids roundabout 11 can read this seriers.

    Loved the way she described scenes with liquid fluency. Magic book that takes you back to old times in China flying high on the wings of a dragon. You get to love Danzi the dragon who has his worries and his magic moments. Can't wait to read "Dragonkeeper" now.

    I think it was pretty good! I like how its the epilouge of all the dragon keeper books, and it shows how danzi has changed and how he used to talk A LOT. and Now he is really quiet... :( I wish it would have been longer though... :'(

    This book was short but good!!!! it gave you more of an idea of Long Danzi when he was younger.

    this is a "prequel" to a series she is finishing. It's not available at our library so she needs to do an ILL

    I don't think it was as good a some of the other books in the series but it had to be short it would have been hard.

    I loved this book and I would have loved it even more if I hadn't read the sequels before it. It was exiting and left each chapter making me want to read more.

    This book was very short and not much happened. It is a prequel that is meant to introduce yo to the characters. It was interesting though. I look forward to the main books in the series

    Good, but too short for my liking. Didn't have the same affect most Carole Wilkinson books do.

    Read this book in preparation for reading with my class. A magical story telling the history of dragons. It is the prequel to a dragon trilogy by Carole Wilkinson. A great quick read.
