Reviews for DragonSpeaker

A good dragon story, December 28, 2005
Reviewer: S V SWAMY "swamy-reviews" (Hyderabad, India)
DragonSpeaker (it is written together in Amazon's site, though the book cover shows the two words separately) is a book for the child in each of us. It is a story of magic, of fire-breathing dragons (they breathe fire to scare baddies and they also use the fire to roast apples!) and how a small girl of 10 is called to save them from extinction. Jamie Mathews is a DragonSpeaker, one who can speak with dragons. She is consistently called through dreams to her true purpose of life and is helped by her grandma, who beleives in magic. She goes out on the adventure accompanied by a bully called Billy, who ends up becoming her friend.

When Jamie unites the tear drop pendant with the original stone of Magic from which it has come out, she discovers her oneness with the mountain and thus the whole world. She is also united with her parents, who disappeared earlier. The book conveys a deep spiritual message to each of us, that we all need to discover our true mission in life and fulfill the same to achieve happiness. It also conveys the idea that the magic in our life will be restored when we become whole and complete.

The book is well written and appeals to children of all ages. I liked this book about saving of dragons as opposed to the others dealing with slaying of dragons.

An excellent, suspenseful read, December 15, 2005
Reviewer: Spamola 
What a great story! Any child who is interested in magic and imagines communicating with dragons as friends will love this book. Ten-year-old Jamie is easy to identify with as an ordinary girl and as a hero on an exciting quest. It reminds me of fantasy-adventure stories I used to love as a kid. It also grabbed me as an adult. I hope it will be widely read.

From Shyanne
Dear Ms. Chipman,
When my teacher (Mrs. Myers) read your book Dragon Speaker it was really interesting. I was wondering if you can do me a favor? Make a sequal to Dragon Speaker. What was your favorite part of Dragon Speaker? Mine was when Jaime put the Tear of the Dragon on the stone and saw her parents. Also I was wondering where can I buy your book Dragon Speaker? So what encouraged you to name Jaime, Jaime? I also liked that it was semishort because that way you don't loose interest. Dragon Speaker was a really good book.

I love your book Dragon Speaker! My favriote part was when Jamie found her parents and she got to keep Scorch. I think your book you made was great! Your thoughts are better then mine. When Mrs. Myers read it to us we wanted her to read 2 chapters because every one liked Dragon Speaker. I think you where working hard on it and I think that you did your best. I really enjoyed Dragon Speaker a lot and I think your a wonderful auther. While Mrs. Myers was reading the book your thoughts made me see pictures in my mind of whats happening in the story.

Your friend Alexa
Dear Ms. Chipman,
We like your book. It was really interesting. You should make a Dragon speaker II so you could tell about what happends when her parents come home. I wish you could come and see us. If you could that would be great. Mrs. Myers read the book to us and when she stoped reading one chapter we all said no because we really liked your book. I hope you could write all of us a letter an Mrs. Myers can read it to us. We talk about how great your books are. Everyone still wants you to make a second book and we always tell Mrs. Myers to read the story again. My favorite part was when the stone qpeared her parents.
sincerely, Lindsey

Your friend Trevin
Dear Ms. Chipman,
I really like your book Dragon Speaker. I was wondering how you got the idiya? My favorite part is when she was praying so that the baby dragon could be born. I all so whated to know is that you on the cover?... or is it Jaime? I think you put a lot of work in this book. I think you should make a squel. How did you come up with all the characters and how did you come up with the name Dragon Speaker. Mrs. Meyers told the class that you like dragons. I all so like the part when Jaime found her parents.
