This book was amazing! It had suspense, sadness, and heart-warming moments.
I did find it a little boring at parts, though. It had a lot of interesting,

Adrienne Kress grew up in Toronto, Ontario. As well as a writer she is also
an actor, and a play she wrote was performed at the Edinburgh festival
fringe. Timothy and the Dragon’s Gate is her second novel. Her first
novel is Alex and the Ironic Gentleman.
Timothy and the Dragon’s Gate is a great book. I give it five stars
and recommend it for ages 9 and up.
