This book is about 2 girls named Ivy and Carrie who love there new class even though the teacher Mrs. Huffity is a bit odd. But one day Mrs. Huffity brings in a box and says they will be taking turns taking care of the egg. She lets them look at the egg and says there is a dragon inside. She asks who will take care of the egg first. Every hand goes up except Ivy’s. Soon Ivy is taking the egg out of David’s locker because he left it at school on purpose. She didn’t believe in the gollivant that would be after the egg. Then she soon realizes with the egg in her hands that the gollivant is after her and the egg. She starts to see them. When the egg hatches she calls Carrie over to help with the dragon. Then they find themselves in the magical world.
I found the book kind of long and drawn out. I felt there was long periods of Ivy just protecting the egg. I liked when the egg hatched and Ivy had to really start fighting the gallivant.
I would recommend this book to anyone ages 7- 11 who likes dragons and magical stuff.
