This story reminds me so much of a story I loved when I was little–Are You My Mother by P.D. Eastman. That story was about a little birdie that falls from its nest and so it goes on a quest to find its mother. This story, however, is about a baby dragon who is trying to find out where it came from because it does not know what it is or anything.


I thought this story was pretty cute. I love dragon stories and the idea of a newborn dragon was adorable. I really liked Qiver.

I have to question why the spider and the tombebeetle never get tired of each other or why she does not just go ahead and eat him up. It seems kind of silly for them to go on this way.

Some of the characters are strange and I can’t really comprehend in my mind what they would look like.

But, all in all, I actually liked this story about Qiver. I actually liked it much better than Otterwill, though they’re both fine stories and perfect for younger kids, like ones under 10.


Hi. My name is Kara. I mostly read YA books, but I love other books as well. My favorite genre is fantasy. My favorite authors include: L. M. Montgomery, Margaret Peterson Haddix, and Gail Carson Levine. I'm very eclectic and love all different kinds of music. Like Adele, Flyleaf, and Josh Turner. :)
