Firedrake, a young dragon, receives a frightening warning one night: Humans are planning to destroy the valley in which he lives! All the dragons must flee. Their only refuge is a place above the clouds called the Rim of Heaven --- which may not even exist. Firedrake boldly volunteers to go ahead first. As he embarks on his journey, he meets Ben, a runaway boy. Together, the boy & dragon make their way toward the Rim of Heaven, all the while running a step ahead of Nettlebrand, a monster who will stop at nothing to hunt down Firedrake. Their quest will truly become an adventure like no other.

My daughter is so in love with this book!! Seriously! She is 9 and has no problems reading it. She has been so glued!!! She comes and tells me all about it every time she gets excited about something in the story and so I pretty much know every detail of the book because she loves it so much she has to tell me all about it for every page se reads. Honestly, I'm about to be 30 and with everything she has told me about this book I really want to read it for myself. i have actually told my daughter to stop telling me stuff about the book because I want to read it after she is done.

My 12 year old 7th grader is an avid reader. Here is her review:
--- "Firedrake, the dragon, and his feline "brownie" companion, Sorrel, have lived with all the other dragons in the same valley all of their lives. Then their friend, Rat, warns them all: the humans are going to turn their valley into a reservoir! The oldest dragon, Slatebeard, tells all the dragons that the only safe place to go is the Rim of Heaven... but only Firedrake decides to set off to find a long-forgotten, possibly un-real place. While hiding in a city to get a map from one of Rat's relatives, a boy named Ben finds them. After Ben helps Firedrake and Sorrel, they decide to take the boy with them. But, Sorrel didn't truly understand how to read the map, so they end up in an area marked to be bad. Sorrel reassures them that it will be fine, but in a nearby castle, a great evil has been told of a silver dragon on the mountain -- and the evil one is none other than Nettlebrand, the dragon hunter, the monstrous 'Golden One.' Will Ben, Sorrel, and Firedrake find the Rim of Heaven, and save the other dragons? Or will they lead Nettlebrand to hunt the pack? Find out in this great book! This was an awesome, fast-paced adventure novel that kept me page-turning and guessing as to what would happen next! It had me cheering on the characters, worried for them, and totally invested in the story. I loved all the main characters: good-hearted Ben; loyal, strong Firedrake; and even sassy Sorrel (the only main female character.) This book was a roller coaster of excitement and emotions. Since it is pretty long, I would recommend it to ages 9+. I think anyone who is a How to Train Your Dragon, or Harry Potter fan would like this book!"

My first introduction to the Dragon Rider was through a coworker who'd purchased the book for her son. I took a look at the first few pages and decided I'd like to get one for my young nephew also. I did and of course, I being a book-hog wanted one in my collection as well. So a second book was purchased. It took me a while to decide to read this little novel, but once I did, I was certainly glad of it. This is a very cute story, thrilling and it kept me wondering from one small chapter to the next. Each of the chapters are short enough to keep your interest, but not so long as to lose you in wordiness.

My only con of this book is that it ended before I was ready for it to end! I could have been immersed in the Dragon Rider forever. It does end giving me the presumption that there could be more adventures for the young dragons and the dragon rider, so I hope Ms. Funke decides to go there. I recently purchased the Inkheart series just to keep me going until she does!

Dragon Rider is a nice read for any age.

What an exciting story! I enjoyed every minute of it. What is not to like it's a book about dragons. I won't say anything more I don't want to give anything away. If you need an adventure this is it Dragon Rider!

Lovely story, my 8 year old really enjoyed it - but he’s pretty attentive and could appreciate the slower parts too. As with any good story there’s a lot of detail, but a engaging and rewarding read.

I thoroughly enjoy reading children's novels, and am constantly amazed at what truly delightful and wondrous tales Cornelia Funke creates. She gained international success with the English publication of "The Thief Lord" and continued to spin her magic with the spellbinding "Inkheart". Having enjoyed these two forays into the mythical world of children, I was looking forward to reading "Dragon Rider" and was not disappointed.

"Dragon Rider" has a more mythical setting, in the fact that it asks the reader to believe that fantastic creatures exist in the same realm as humans. The last of the known dragons on earth are facing eviction from their peaceful valley due to the expansion of humans. Firedrake, one brave dragon, agrees to search for the Rim of Heaven - a magical hiding place of the dragons, that may or may not exist. Along with his brownie friend Sorrel, they pick up a human boy named Ben as they travel the world in their quest. Along the way that meet humans who both help and harm, as well as other fantastic creatures who help and harm. Their journey is impeded through the evil machinations of Nettlebrand, the Golden One. A manmade dragon with impenetrable metal scales, Nettlebrand was designed to destroy all of the silver dragons. With the aide of his frightened servants, Nettlebrand tracks Firedrake, Sorrel and Ben as they make their way towards the Rim of Heaven, so that he may hunt and kill the last of the dragons.

Funke's story is filled with vivid and well-rounded characters. She weaves age-old stories with original plotlines, creating a story that no reader could put down until they know what happens to the heroes. "Dragon Rider" is filled with adventure and humor, a truly delightful story for children, as well as for the child inside every adult.

My 6 year old twins enjoyed the entire book (I read it to them). It was complex enough to be interesting but simple enough for them to understand every bit of it and remember it from night to night. Longest book we've read yet. A complete pleasure.
