They live in a mountain town, fenced to keep out the valley people. But it has gate. The King charges Jess's father with making a strong gate for the town. Huff is getting too old to provide eugh fire, so they get a new, red dragon, who they call Puff. They work day and night to finish the gate for the King. Then Puff becomes ill, and it's only with the help of a boy from the valley that Jess learns how to heal her and, excitingly, how to fly on her! Told in simple, engaging language, this fun, magical story is perfect for developing readers. Red bananas are chapter books for newly fluent readers, suitable for NC Level 3 readers.
