Fans of mythical creatures and fantasy novels will enjoy soaring through the pages of author Tui T. Sutherland's New York Times best-selling book series, Wings of Fire.
"My 11-year-old has been enthralled by this fantasy fiction series since the very first book," says Christie Burnett, a teacher and mom of two.
The series follows the tales of dragon tribes and their battles, prophecies, and friendships. Most of the books are written from the point of view of different young dragons with humanlike traits and emotions — making them incredibly relatable to young readers. (That said, Wings of Fire: Legends: Dragonslayer is written from the point of view of humans.)
Check out the newest book in the series, Wings of Fire #15: Flames of Hope! Your child will be on the edge of their seats as Luna uncovers a long-buried secret and battles the dark roots poisoning Pantala. Now, more than ever, she must unite her friends, enemies, and powers.
Graphic novels are a great way to boost your child's reading comprehension skills and love of books, and the Wings of Fire Graphic Novels will have them excitedly following along the captivating storylines and illustrations. For example, Wings of Fire Graphic Novel #5: The Brightest Night is a compelling book about five dragonets ready to do what they can to change destiny and end a raging war.
Your kids can also jump right into the series with the Wings of Fire Starter Collection (Pack of 10). These epic stories are known to hook kids on reading and will get your upper elementary reader more excited about books than ever before.
