The Dragons of Chiril by Donita K. Paul

Book Description:
Tipper has been caring for her family's estate for years now, ever since her father disappeared, making a living by selling off his famous artwork. Then she learns that three statues she sold were carved from an ancient foundation stone, and the fabric of her reality is crumbling. She must free her father and save the world. But she can't do it alone.
Her ragtag band of adventurers includes Beccaroon, a giant parrot; Bealomondore, an aristocratic young artist; a handsome dragonkeeper prince; the Wizard Fenworth; and the tumanhofer librarian, Librettowit. Together they travel through valleys and kingdoms and consort with purveyors of good and agents of evil to find and reunite the missing statues. Will they learn to rely on Wulder's grace and guidance along the way?
My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this book. Tipper's father has been missing for many years. To take care of her family, she has been selling her father's work a bit along. When her father returns, with some interesting characters, she learns that she may have inadvertantly caused the world to start crumbling! Now she along with the little band have to find the sculptures.
The mixture of characters in this little band was great! You will instantly fall in love with the characters and the world that is created in this book. I loved the different races. Tipper was a strong character that I appreciated. A well written young adult novel that if you are an adult like me, will entertain you as well!
I rate this a 4/5. It was a really good read that was highly entertaining.
