The Dragonsitter by Josh Lacey -- ADVISABLE
Told entirely in emails, this is the story of a boy who volunteers to dragon-sit for his uncle -- and immediately regrets it. Turns out dragons aren't so easy to take care of, especially when they come with no instructions.
A pet rabbit is killed toward the beginning of the tale, but otherwise it's a light, funny story with an upbeat conclusion. Its quirky cover, hilarious illustrations, unusual format -- and, of course, dragons -- will likely entice readers.
