Review: Have you ever had an unusual friend? What about a dragon? The Dragon in the Volcano by Kate Klimo is the 4th installment of the Dragon Keepers series. The main characters are Jessie, Daisy, Emma, and more.

The Dragon in the Volcano is about two cousins, Jesse and Daisy, who are Dragon Keepers, and their pet dragon, Emma. Emma usually disappears when the cousins go to school, but she comes home all of the time. However, one day, when Jesse and Daisy come home from school, they find that Emma is missing! They ask for help from their friends and follow a trail of socks that Emma has left behind that leads into the Fire Realm. The Fire Realm is a magical realm where dragons and fire fairies live. Jesse and Daisy find Emma there, but she wants to mate and live in the Fire Realm. Can the cousins bring Emma back to their home or will they lose Emma in the Fire Realm forever?

The Dragon in the Volcano is an adventurous story! I really liked it because the plot of the book is very well done. When Jessie and Daisy found Emma in a volcano, I thought that she would go with them to her home. But, the plot twist excited me. I didn't know that Emma wanted to stay in the Fire Realm and not go with her friends. It was surprising to me. This book is equally compelling as the Magic Treehouse series. Kids should read this if they like magic, adventure, and lovable characters! The Dragon Keepers series is written for children ages 7 to 12.
