    When a Chinese dragon somehow finds her way to Spratt Ohio and bears a litter of nine offspring at The Wilds a wildlife conservancy run by seventh grade protagonist John Salt's parents our hero becomes actively involved in their care Discovered only ten years before by Dr Zhao the dragons soon attract the wrong sort of attention in the form of John’s long absent Aunt Mary Athena who descends upon her former home intent on using the dragonlings in horrific experiments to produce anti aging cosmetics Now John must find a way to save the dragons with the help of his best friend Ham and Ham’s secretly brilliant sister CandiI found this work of middle grade fantasy rather uninspiring and was unable to work up much interest either in the plot resolution or in the characters themselves My initial excitement at discovering a children's fantasy set in the American mid west Ohio is my birth state soon gave way to boredom with the bland writing and generic plotting There is far better dragon fantasy out there whether one is looking for the humorous think Patricia Wrede's The Enchanted Forest Chronicles or the epic Anne McCaffrey’s The Dragonriders of Pern Laurence Yep’s Dragon of the Lost Sea books and it is to these works that I would direct the young reader

    This book had a cute story with some exciting action parts The dialogue was somewhat forced with a lot of outdated slang twerp weenie boy oh boy Jeez etc especially considering that this book was published in 2004 The reuirements for being popular seemed outdated as well since being smart and being popular were incompatibleThe dragons were interesting and it was an enjoyable read

    Imagine if the Wilds of Ohio had a clutch of dragonets growing up among the white rhinos and reticulated giraffes Imagine further that they were in the care of a ten year old boy known only by his last name Salt That's the idea behind The Dragons of Spratt OhioShortly after the dragons hatch a long lost aunt appears to do research on a new wrinkle cream She is part of R D of a famous makeup producer in Paris France She is idolized by Candi a straight A student who is afraid she has to play dumb to stay popularThe aunt Dr Salt though turns out to be very different than Candi's imagined version She only wears black she only eats health food and she doesn't seem to have any sense of humorMeanwhile Salt has the dragons to worry about They are at risk from poachers and are a danger to the other wildlife at the park When a dragon goes missing he has to risk his own life to keep them safe even if it means betraying someone very close to himAlthough Salt's parents are absent in the book he isn't an orphan They are away on business and it gives Salt Candi and the other teens in the book a chance to spread their wings just as the dragons are doing the same Their reactions though are grounded in the values of their families and the parents do play important roles tooThroughout the book Salt makes a number of interesting observations about dragon behavior and biology These added details help bring the fantasy elements aliveA similar book worth reading is Dragonhaven by Robin McKinley

    Synopsis John Salt loves his baby dragons all nine of them He cares for them as if they were his babies they are his babies for Pete's sake because after all how many kids in Ohio besides Salt have a litter of dragons living behind their house? Exactly none that's how manyBut not everyone loves the dragons as much as Salt In fact someone is planning to do them some major major harm And once Salt finds out that his babies are in danger it's up to him and one of his least favorite people Candi Clark to save themBut how can they save the dragons? They're just kids for cryin' out loud And Candi is interested in finding the perfect eye shadow to go with her rhinestone hair clips than anything else or so she'd like everyone to think But Salt is a pretty tough kid for a couch potato and Candi has a trick or two up her sleeve in this funny novel from the author of the truth about rats rules seventh gradeMy Review This one took a lot of pushing to finish I found it dull and odd at times I really didn't see much point in Candi or her random storyline other than to appeal towards girls and to supposedly be the brains to get everyone out of trouble The storyline was also slow and boring even the parts that were supposed to be exciting seemed to move really slowly I have a hard time seeing this capturing the attention of the pre teen and young teen audience and keeping them involved with the book

    TO BE UPDATED SOME OTHER TIMEThis is a very nostalgic moment for me because I'm going through all the old Pennsylvania Reader's Choice Awards Nominee List 2008 and I know I read most of them This bookI'm pretty sure I've read this But I don't remember anything It's all so blurry inside my head Hopefully I'll read it again
