" Merlin's dragon is a very good book in my opinion. (view spoiler)[Merlin names basil,the dragon basilgarrad (hide spoiler)] I would suggest it to Caleb Allen because it seems that he is interested in both fiction and nonfiction.The conflict is that the dragon is small and wants to meet Merlin.Essentially he is pitted against multiple difficult situations. I like it because it is in general an exiting book. " said.

" The writing in this is very beautiful and you can tell Barron has a talent for writing. However I don't think this is the best story that he's written. It's very very slow moving and not a lot of variety to the writing. Overall I've read better Barron books, but this series might go somewhere so I'll still read the second. " said.

" We LOVED this book. It is a beautifully descriptive book for middle readers. No fast paced action so typical of may book for this age group, but the story of Basil, is captivating for children as well as adults. My 7 year old loved having this read to him, and has since re-read it several times. " said.

" Great book. Amazing writing. It had it all: imagery, characterization, you name it. As you're reading it, you can basically hear the characters speak and can imagine the scene they are in perfectly. I honestly have not invested myself into one book for a very long time and I'm really happy I chose to read it. " said.

" I thought Barron's Lost Years of Merlin series was a fun YA fantasy read, but I didn't like Merlin's Dragon as much as I thought I would. I know it's meant for kids from 8-12, but the story seemed very simple and predictable, without as much of the character depth I saw in the Lost Years of Merlin series. I read the other two books after this as well, and they weren't horrible, but I was still left feeling kind of disappointed. " said.

" This was a spectacular book. I am a huge fan of his Merlin books (both Lost Years and Great Tree of Avalon). His environments are rich and diverse. His take on Merlin's life, his side of some of my absolute favorite myths and legends, is one of my favorites.But I also loved this story, filling in the gap between those two series. The tale was sweet and inspiring, just like the other two. It took a while for the plot to take flight, but once it did, it was quite engaging. " said.

" I really, really wanted to like this book. However interesting the premise was, the story was slow to develop and not terribly interesting. At 3/4 of the way through it, I have decided not to finish it because I really don't care. At that point in the book, I was still waiting for it to get good. "Good" to me is when I can't wait to pick up the book again or I don't want to stop reading it. I pretty much was forcing myself to read it. Oh well. " said.

" This book had SUCH a satisfying outcome! I remember being so disappointed when the Lost Years of Merlin series ended. This book fills the missing piece between Lost Years of Merlin and Great Tree of Avalon. Parts of the book were so lyrical I felt like I was right there in the story. Now I'm going back to Lost Years of Merlin to start reading them again. This book reminded me how much I loved that series! " said.
