THE BLUE DRAGONLING
ahhh no it was apparently just called ‘the dragonling’ sorry!
OH MY GOD IM S CCREAMING THIS IS IT THIS IS THE BOOK THANK YOU HO LYS HIT IVE BEEN TRYING TO REMEMBER THIS BOOK FOR YEARS THANK YOU IM SO EMOTIONAL
I read it between 2000-2005ish I think? Maybe earlier, I can’t remember. It was a fiction series about this kid who had to go kill a dragon but it had a baby and he ended up raising the baby and he like kept it in his house for a while until it got too big and then he took it out into the mountains to learn how to fly it. I think a necklace of dragon teeth was involved too?
In a later sequel I think they flew through a tunnel in a mountain to another city where the dragon had to have like ??? a cage fight with another dragon idk it was very stressful
also the dragon was BLUE and was like the last of its kind maybe??? or something like that
and had these badass paintings of dragons flying over mountain valleys
help i was so obsessed with these books what are they called

The difference between learning a modern language and an ancient language is that in first year French you learn “Where is the bathroom?” and “How do I get to the train station?” and in first year Attic Greek or Latin you learn “I have judged you worthy of death” and “The tyrant had everyone in the city killed.”
“Kazul’s not my dragon.” Cimorene said sharply. “I’m her princess. You’ll never have any luck dealing with dragons if you don’t get these things straight.”
