Dragon Seer’s Gift by Janet McNaughton
HarperCollins, 2011, 9781443406789
Interest Level: Grades 5 and Up
Researching a Scottish ancestor for a Heritage Fair project, 12-year-old Gwyn and his 14-year-old sister, Maddie, find more than just a curious journal and an heirloom cast-iron key; they awaken an intelligent, centuries-old flying dragon. Past and present blur as school bullies, an archaeological discovery at L’anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland, and an ancient Viking curse change the way science and magic affect both humans and animals.
