The Storm Dragon by Paula Harrison -- OPTIONAL

Harrison, Paula The Storm Dragon (The Secret Rescuers #1), illustrated by Sophy Williams. Simon & Schuster, 2015. $5.99. Content: G.

As a maid in the castle, Sophy wishes for adventure. But when a baby dragon crash-lands near her, she knows all that is about to change. With the help of a magical stone, she communicates with Cloudy the storm dragon, and learns that he is hurt. But his broken wing isn't the only problem; Sir Fitzroy the knight is determined to lock up all magical creatures. Can Sophy heal Cloudy's wing and help him escape, or will they both be caught?

The premise of this book and the series as a whole are both good. Unfortunately, the plot and writing itself are unexceptional, and Sophy doesn't stand out as a unique protagonist.
