Review by Evangeline

This is such a good book. I was captivated until the very end and would definitely read it again and again and again! This was one of my first PJ books which left a good impression. (It's also kinda funny because I'm getting my last book this month and its the sequel to this book) Anyways, definitely recommend it to anyone, especially those who love mythical creatures. :D

Good + Dragons + Fantasy

Review by sweetpuppy

This book is all of the things in my title. It is also really exciting. It has a cast of very interesting characters. There are some sad and scary parts, which is why I didn't give it a five, but you can get through it to find out what happens. Good for people who like folktales, fantasy or twisty adventures.

Review by IsabelPJ

Anya and the Dragon is a book about the only Jewish girl in their village. Her family has to pay 250 rubles in a month to keep their home. To raise money, she is helping to catch a dragon. Along the way she has to decide whether to lose her home or save her friend? I loved the book because it was interesting and I really like the plot. If you like magic and fantasy and Harry Potter books, you will like this book. I encourage you to read it. It’s really good!!!!!!!
