Green Dragon Codex

I recently received a copy of the book, Green Dragon Codex, written by R.D. Henham.  This book is the companion series to the New York Times best-selling A Practical Guide to Dragons.  If you love stories about dragons, adventures, surprise, you’ll love Green Dragon Codex.

We all know that dragons are evil, but sometimes they can surprise us, just as people do!  In Green Dragon Codex, 10 year old Scamp Weaver discovers a strange chest that has a green dragon egg inside of it, along with a mysterious ancient scroll.  After opening the chest, he is launched onto a crazy adventure, where he is chased by dragon hunters who want the contents of the chest for themselves.  Things get even more crazy when the egg hatches!  Will this baby green dragon be as evil as people think he will be?  Read it and find out for yourself!

1 lucky winner on The Mommy-Files will receive a copy of Green Dragon Codex!!!
