Green Dragon Codex by R.D. Henham

To ten-year-old Scamp Weaver, an old mahogany chest is just too incredible to keep whatever secrets it holds inside. Especially when he finds it by a dead dragon! When Scamp brings it home to open the chest with his older brother, Mather, and his best friend, Dannika, they discover that the chest contains an odd stone and a mysterious tablet. But before they can even wonder what these items might be, they are attacked by dragonslayers who come to take the strange objects for themselves. Forced to flee, the trio begins a journey to save their lives and possibly many others. Soon they find what they contents of the chest are from a stranger as a green dragon hatches from the stone.   

I very thoroughly enjoyed the Green Dragon Codex. The harrowing tale of a boy who stumbles upon a dragon egg was very intriguing. I think many would love this book for its surplus of high adventure and suspense.  Its fast-paced action and nerve-racking mystery really kept my attention. Of course, this is my opinion. So pick up this book and decide if you can handle the story.
