Elliott is such an adept storyteller, that the reader/listener could be deceived into believing the crafting of the novel was effortless. A great deal of thought goes into a well-crafted work; a great deal of thought will be provoked by it. And admire how smooth that ending is. Elliott masters the pacing in this rich, but relatively brief novel. Someone please commission a series of early reader chapter books from Zetta Elliott.

Between the notes of contemporary realism and the more ‘fantastical,’ Dragons in a Bag will have broad appeal. Elliott offers humor and heart and a hero reader/listeners will be rooting for. That Elliott offers depth in intrigue and contexts while also offering a straightforward adventure story means her novel will have broad appeal across age groups and levels of comprehension. I’m excited to recommend Dragons in a Bag for family and classroom read-aloud where such a range is often involved.
