The Witch’s Apprentice

Dragons in a Bag, Book 3

Written by Zetta Elliot, Illustrated by Cherise Harris

This series is a lot of fun. The first book, Dragons in a Bag, was just the introduction to the magical world of dragons, witches, magicians, and other magical creatures. My favorite so far was the second book, The Dragon Thief. Kavita grew as a character in some fun and interesting ways. This latest book takes Jax deeper into the magical realm and into mysterious ways. There are quite a few new characters that I enjoyed getting to know. And if you started the series you will want to continue with this book. And possibly another one in the future. . .

I think kids who read and enjoyed the first book will enjoy this book as well. There are many references in this story to historical places in Chicago and ethnically diverse groups of people that changed Chicago throughout history. It’s great to learn about real places while reading a fictional story. I’m looking forward to seeing how this story progresses in the next installment.
