Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Enchanting Tale I do believe this book was the very first one my mom bought me during a school book fair. I can't remember if we ever finished reading it together but I know I finally got around to finishing it when I was old enough to enjoy sitting still and focusing on the words on the page. I do believe this book is just one of the reasons I like Dragonriders of Pern so much because within both stories, a human gets partnered with a fire-breathing dragon and they share a bond with each other, one that transends ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Fantasy Another one of my all-time favourite childhood books, "Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher" is a great read. I read this for a book report back when I was 9 or so, and I still love the book. Great characters, fun plot, and who can honestly say that a pet dragon is not the coolest thing in the world?
