Book Recommendation: Dragons in a Bag #iLoveMG

Welcome to #iLoveMG where I share middle grade books that my fifth graders recommend. (Please note that my fifth graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for fifth graders.) Or check out #3rdfor3rd for recommendations from when I taught third grade.

Dragons in a Bag

Recommended by Sawyer

Dragons in a Bag by Zetta Elliott. Realistic Fiction and Fantasy.

Dragons in a Bag is about a boy named Jaxon (but most of the book refers to him as Jax) and his mom has to go to court. His mom drops him off at "Ma's" house, but Ma seems to be hiding something big.

I really liked this book because it was action-packed with twists and turns, and because it seems like it really could happen.

If you like mysteries, dragons, action, and adventure, I think you would really like this book.

[Note from me: the sequel in this planned trilogy, The Dragon Thief, came out on October.]
