It is the story of David who is twenty-year-old. He is currently living with Elizabeth Pennykettle and her eleven-year-old daughter, Lucy. Liz's specialty is pottery, and she delights in making clay dragons. She makes David his own special dragon, named Gadzooks.
Gadzooks inspires David to write a story about squirrels, as Lucy loves them. But what starts out as a fantasy is beginning to become unnervingly true. Now, David starts to discover the truth behind the mystery, but to solve it he will have to master the magic of the fire within, within his hands and his heart.

I loved this book, and I would run to a store and make my own dragon if I could! It was fantasy book with a pinch of mystery I like, and that are made for combination perfectly! I would recommend it to anyone who likes dragons, squirrels, and/or animal fantasy.
