{Synopsis} – Pick a book. Grow a Reader!

This series is part of Scholastic’s early chapter book line Branches, aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!

In book #5, the Dragon Masters are excited to meet the newest Dragon Master, Petra. But when she arrives at the castle, she doesn’t fit in right away. She’s a know-it-all, and she doesn’t even try to connect with her four-headed dragon! Could the Dragon Stone have chosen her by mistake? Then something terrible happens to the king. Petra will have to work with the other Dragon Masters to save him before it’s too late!

{My thoughts} – There is much to be learned about the dragons while reading through this series. I really enjoy how each book picks up right where the had left off. In this book we get to meet the new Dragon Master. Her name is Petra and she gets the Hydra dragon that was used in the attack against the castle in the last book.

Petra seems to have lots of knowledge about dragons which at first makes the Dragon Masters curious about her. After awhile though she starts to come off as a know it all. At that point most of the Dragon Masters don’t want to listen to her and start to feel like she isn’t interested in being there. It isn’t long before Drake figures out that she is nervous and scared of the Hydra. Once he is able to help get past how she feels and help her to see how great the Hydra is, Petra starts to warm up to the Hydra and things start going according to plan.

When the book ends the Dragon Masters have a visitor that brings with him some bad news. This bad news is news that Griffith had already been questioning. I am interested in seeing what is to come of the story in the next book.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
