I have read the blob and the first chapter so far and I find that this book is actually dragging me into it. How can a human be a threat to dragons when they have this melting fire breath and these huge pointy claws and this huge body? How does a human boy get involved with this adventure if the point of all the commotion is to get away safely from the humans? Why isn't a rat named Rat going on the journey with Firedrake, a dragon, and Sorrel, a brownie? And who is Gilbert Greytail? I hope that I will know the answers to these questions as I read more. In fact, Iknow that I would.
