I totally loved this book. I got it from my local library and two days before it was due, found it and realized I still needed to read it. So I picked it up... and was loathe to put it down. Needless to say, I finished the book--- with a day to spare. THE SECRET OF DRAGONHOME is an amazing story with amazing characters and an amazing plot, all written in amazing writing. I think the love was a bit rushed, but the entire thing had a fast moving pace, so... I thoroughly enjoyed my reading experience with this book though. Great for anyone who loves a little bit of magic, romance, and danger, all thrown in with a whole lot of adventure.

I discovered this book at a Barnes and Noble while I was still in elementary school, now as a high school grad and a full time B&N employee, I still enjoy the tale. Tragedy, humor, love, and inspired heroism are all to be found here. While far from comparable to Tolkien's Middle Earth, or even the Princess Bride, Secret of Dragonhome still holds a dear place in my heart.

this book is a delightful adventure. Anything you can want in a book magic love and trial. What you think you know about a person changes you don't know who is friend or foe

I never thought i would like this book when i read it in the 4th grade by myself. It sounded stupid but i think there should be the secret of dragonhome 2 & 3 & 4

I didn't think I would like this book when I had to read it in 7th grade. I was very wrong though I loved this book! The story is so rich and the characters are amazing! I really wish this wasn't out of print it's a musthave to read!

When I read this book I didn't want to stop. I just kept reading and reading and I fell in love with Melayne and the other characters. It was awesome.

I really want to write down how much I love this book but I don't think that I can take the days that it would require...I first saw/bought this book at a school book fair, during the 7th grade, and since then I have had a great love for this work. I have read this book 13 times, and enjoyed it every time. The quality of this tale and its characters, is... hypnotic and sucks you in, you can feel as though you are there, struggling alongside with Melayne. It is a truly wonderful tale that just leaves you breathless, and the only bad quality about the book is that it ends....

I first read this book, thanks to a teacher. Being a big fan of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, I have big expectations for fantasy books. This one blew me away. I could not set it down. Reading this book, you begin to love the characters. The plot sucks you in, and you constantly wonder if Melayne and her younger brother are going to make it. Then she comes up against Sander. Mr. Peel made this plot rich with surprises. I am eagerly awaiting a sequel.

The Secret of Dragonhome lead me into places that I never knew I could go. A world of fantasy was unleashed and I began to acquire my love of reading. Ever since I first bought this book I have been looking for more copies. This book pulls you into a world where the characters grab you and drag you in. I could not put this book down, and have started reading it to my sister. We love this book with all our hearts. In a world where the main characters are chased by people that we would call knights, meet animals that some can talk to, and arrive at a spooky castle filled with mysteries, you will find yourself unable to put it down. Each and every single character you will come to love, even the 'bad guys.' Seeing a young teenage girl talk back to a supervisor and win is thrilling and halarious. With creatures like dragons and characters you love, you will never get bored reading THE BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!!!!

This book has been a huge inspiration to me in so many ways. Having the dream of being an author myself some day,i often look to this book as a form of inspiration. i love this book so much and i'm thinkin about even writing a sequel of my own in the future (that is unless Mr. Peel comes out with one of his own).

I have read this book many times over, and it is still entertaining. I bought it when it first came out and I have been waiting for a sequal ever since. The main character is lovable and practical and manages to take everything instride, including: loss, war, love, and betrayal. Yet, I also think that there are some unresolved problems left hanging in the end that would make a very good sequal.
