"A Dragon's Guide, by Yep and Ryder"

A Dragon's Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans. What a mouthful that title is! The authors are Newberry Honor-winner Laurence Yep and his wife, Joanne Ryder, an award-winning poet. These two collaborate on a clever retort to the trope of humans having dragons as pets.

The viewpoint character is a dragon, Miss Drake, who is mourning the recent death of her human pet. Fluffy, a.k.a. Amelia, was the latest in a family line that Miss Drake has kept as pets for several generations. But Miss Drake has little time to grieve, for along comes Fluffy's great-niece Winnie, a lively young girl who somehow seems to think Miss Drake is her pet. A dragon as pet? Who could imagine such a ridiculous thing!
