First of all, I would say I recommend the Jewel for all ages, even for me. I’m 11, so I’m not totally a baby nor an adult, but I can clearly see that all or most will certainly enjoy reading the Jewel. So even if the story is too young for adults I think you should buy it just for it’s spectacular artwork. Also what I love about the author Carrie Stanton is her amazing descriptions. Especially her personifications. I mean she’s talented. So that's a review of the Jewel from an 11 year old and I totally loved it and recommend it to all ages.

My favourite character was the dragon - he looked really cute and he was kind of nice and kind of mean. I like Emmie's bravery. I like all the juicy words. The illustrations were really good. My favourite part was when the dragon burned the bridge up beneath the man's feet - it was funny. I like when they offered her a puppy for taming the dragon.

It was very interesting and I like the descriptive words. I like the bravery of the girl Emmie. My favourite character was the dragon because he was interesting when he burned the people's picnic blanket and burned the bridge underneath the people's feet!

I loved this! The simple act of kindness and a sincere offer of friendship tamed the fierce dragon and is a wonderful tale for everyone regardless of age. This will definitely be a staff pick for me.
