Susan Fromberg Schaeffer. Apart from the ending, this is all Arthur's book, so it's time wasted. There's also a lot of arbitrary inclusions in the book, like the twin medics the black spider and the silver raccoon. It also has the least romantic marriage proposal ever. Some things work, some don't. Arthur is the son of a dragon killed rescuing humans.

Susan Fromberg Schaeffer, a novelist with a gift for evoking complex characters in the grip of extreme psychological stress and physical suffering, notably in The Madness of a Seduced Woman and the Vietnam War novel Buffalo Afternoon, died on Friday in Chicago. She was 71. The cause was complications of a stroke, her husband, Neil J. Schaeffer, said

The Dragons of North Chittendon. New York, Simon and Schuster, 1986. Susan Fromberg Schaeffer's novels, spanning sixteen years, are basically mainstream fictions that employ stream of consciousness, radical time shifts, and other modernist techniques, but only incidentally. Apparently she believes that the traditional form is adequate to her purposes, and she is right in so thinking. Schaeffer is mainly interested in exploring and illuminating the shapes of her characters' lives through presentation of the mundane details of their existences.

Determined to end the age-old battle between humans and dragons, Arthur, a misunderstood dragon, rescues an abandoned baby who grows up to become a powerful ally in his quest
  • I really can't find my copy, but I suddenly got nostalgic and had to look for this book! This was my FAVORITE when I was a kid, and I have nothing except fond memories of Arthur and his experiences in this beautiful story. I recommend this book to any child who loves fantasy or just a really charming story. Out of all the books I've read (and there are a lot) in my life, this is the one I always come back to in my memory when someone asks me what my favorite book is.

    Edit (2009): FOUND MY COPY! After buying a replacement, too! I'm rereading it as soon as possible. It's still my favorite story from when I was little. I remember finding it in a secondhand bookstore and falling in love with it. I even did several book reports on it and forced my English teachers to read it, too.

    I don't agree with the critics' reviews. As an aspiring novelist, I see their points, but as a kid at heart, I see nothing wrong with the characterizations or setting. The story is written for children, and it is what it is, and fulfills what it sets out to do: it creates a wonderful story about dragons and humans in a quiet American setting, with some beautiful original mythology about the moon that has stuck with me over the years, and the characters (Mordechai!) are unforgettable.

  • I'll start of by saying this is a fantastic read, I think anyone should give it a chance. Now this buy was nice, not too pricey, and got to my house from Minnesota quite quickly. The quality is pretty good, the cover's not great, but all the pages are in pretty much perfect shape. Two thumbs up.

  • Oh my GOD. I have seriously been looking for this book for 20 years. I read this when I was 13, and I loved it so much. I checked it out from the library, and I could NEVER NEVER find the title or author's name, so I really thought it was a lost cause.

    But here it is! TWENTY years later. Seriously. I have just ordered a copy from one of the sellers, and even though I'm 33, I'm going to read it the second I get it!

  • I remember checking this book out from our public library as a child. I wasn't much into fantasy fiction, but something about the dragons caught my eye. I loved this book. I only was able to read it the one time. I returned time and again to see if it was available after I had to return it, but it was always checked out. Even now, as an adult, when I return home, I check the library to see if it's available. One of my favorite books that has stuck with me even now.

  • This is my all time favorite childhood book. I have a first edition from 1986 that has moved everywhere I have moved, even when I've sold other books or given them away. I only have 4-5 other books that have touched me in the same way this book has. I have read this book so often the spine is broken in many places (although the binding is still holding everything together :)). I still read this book at least once (if not 2-3 times) each year. The story of Arthur and Patrick is still touching (even now that I'm almost 30), and I never get tired of Mordechai and Felix. This is truly an amazing book. I would love to read a sequel!

  • I borrowed this book from a friend back in the 5th or 6th grade and have been looking for it for years now! I couldn't remember the authors name or the name of the book, only some of the details like the white queen, a dragon race, very few if any humans, moon dragons. Finally, I did a search on Amazon for books on dragons written prior to 1997 and it came up. Please do write a sequel, I'm going to order this book now.

  • Similar story to all of the other reviewers here - I loved loved LOVED this book when I was little. I read it several times a year and I have a few sketchbooks filled with drawings I did of all the dragon characters. I doubt I'm still in possession of my dog-eared old copy, but it would be such a delight to find it and read it again.

  • It had adventure and was entertaining. I couldn't put the book down. I would redcomend this book to all fifth graders. Once you read this you'll start to like dragons. Your mothers will like it because it has no foul language. It's funny if you get the situation jokes. There's really more about it, but that's all I can tell you. You should read this and share your opinion at Amazon Books.
