Review of The Dragon in the Sock Drawer by Kate Kimo, Jonathan Shoades (illustrator):

Here’s the idea: when an ordinary rock — a thunder egg — tucked into a 10-year-old’s sock drawer hatches into baby dragon, there are a few challenges. For one thing, it turns out that baby dragons are extremely noisy. For another, as cousins Daisy and Jesse discover, finding out what to feed an infant dragon is nearly impossible.

The Dragon in the Sock Drawer
is the whole package: smart, sometimes wise, thoughtful and funny. Klimo’s debut effort has the feel of an instant classic.
