The Dragon in the Sock Drawer is the first book in a new series by Kate Kilmo called Dragon Keepers #1. It’s a really fun reader for young readers – kind of like Harry Potter meets the computer age.

The Dragon in the Sock Drawer is the first book in a new series by Kate Kilmo called Dragon Keepers #1. It’s a really fun reader for young readers – kind of like Harry Potter meets the computer age.

In the book, Jesse's parents leave him with his aunt and uncle while they are out of town. When his aunt has to leave on a business trip to Paris, his Uncle Joe is left to watch Jesse and Jesse’s cousin, Daisy (who is Joe’s daughter).

While looking for rocks one day, Jesse and Daisy stumble across a geode, which they call a “thunder egg.” The amazing part is, the egg actually talks to them! And when a baby dragon hatches from the egg, the two kids have no idea what to do! They don’t know how to take care of a baby dragon – so they do what any modern-day kid would do: they hop on the Internet and Google “dragon care.”


Online, Jesse and Daisy come across several references to an out-of-print book called “The Dragon Keeper's Guide.” When they look up the author's name, their computer magically becomes interactive and acts as their guide as they try to figure out how to take care of their new little friend.


Emerald – Emmy for short – is the name Jesse and Daisy give to their baby dragon. She’s an adorable little creature that can think and talk, and she turns the two kids’ lives upside-down!


You’ll love this book with all its modern-day twists and turns. If you love dragons, you’ll love reading The Dragon in the Sock Drawer, not to mention the books in the Dragon Keepers #1 series.

    (ikr) Paperjam winced slightly, and then smiled. "Yeah, we're in space... Me and Dad were just out here, talking.... hey... I was wondering...  uh, have you ever heard of someone named Ink? People keep mentioning him to me, but I don't know who he is...."

    "Heh, well, that's fine. Nice to meet you, kid." I accepted his hand, giving it a good shake. ​"So, what's up around here? I notice we're in space." Looking up, I get a good look at Paperjam's dad. "Hey! I like the coat!" I had meant it to be a genuine compliment, but it came out rather rude. Oh, well. Too late to take it back. Paperjam's dad gave me a look of disgust. ​(({This is getting so cute! The side plot, I mean. I love it!}))

    I agree, and If you think the app is a waste of space on your tablet then delete it, and go online. You have to make your own decisions.

    (PunMaster smiled. "It's beautiful Papyrus.") Error and Paperjam had been in conversation, and Paperjam was shorter than Error at the moment, probably quite a bit younger, he looked child like. Error looked a little bit older, and taller, and he wore a trench coat (still in the same style as his jacket though), and he wore Ink!Sans' scarf. Error and Paperjam looked over, and Paperjam stared at Iron for a moment, before asking something quietly. Error thought about it, before seeming to sigh, responding. Paperjam looked excited, his features brightening, and Paperjam leaped off their floating rock, landing in front of Iron. "Hi..! I'm Paperjam..! That's my Dad up there... uh... he isn't much for communicating with other people." Paperjam admitted, and then held out his hand in an offer of a handshake.
