One day, their grandfather tells them the story of the dragon that protects the secrets of the cave, and it sparks the twins' curiosity.

The Magical Eggs on Dragon's Lair is a double treat because it is a fantasy epic tale that teaches a life lesson and it also has a fantastic storyline. Adam and Evette are intelligent and determined characters. Their plans were methodically thought out, and they did everything possible to get what they wanted. The two even got jobs to fund their investigation. I loved the adventure of trying to figure out what was in the cave, and Gina Sano built up the mystery perfectly. Whenever you think the twins have found what they are looking for, something else always pops up. I also loved the beautiful illustrations depicting various scenes and objects in the story. The images are similar to screenshots from an animated movie. The author should consider creating a cartoon from the story. The most important aspect of the book was Adam's and Evette's character development. By the end of their journey, the pair had transformed into compassionate and considerate children. Great work.

From tormenting their classmates at school and swiping their food to being generally uncooperative, there is no mischief Adam and Evette cannot cause. On one of their trips to the beach, they find a cave and inside that cave, they find an unusual treasure. The interesting thing about treasure is it tends to come with adventure as well as trouble.

The Magical Eggs On Dragon's Lair is an adventure story by Gina Sano. One can easily tell from the cute, colorful pictures and simple language that it is targeted at the younger story lover. The storyline is straightforward with a gentle balance of adventure and child-like activities in every chapter to remind one of the importance of good morals. I particularly like the stick and carrot approach the eggs use when interacting with Evette and Adam as it is one of the most effective methods of making children understand that actions have consequences. With her direct approach to storytelling, Gina puts together an impressive piece of work that is guaranteed to appeal to children of various ages. There is no doubt that this author is one to watch out for in the future.
