Book Description, Modified from Goodreads:
What if you discovered a real, living dinosaur? Noah Drake, and his annoying brother Nathan, return to Lake Champlain and hope to see the legendary lake monster named Champ. The two boys soon realize the sea dragon is in danger when an escaped convict takes their family hostage. Will the criminals catch and kill a legend? Not if Noah and Nathan can put aside their differences to work together.

My Review:
Noah Drake And The Return Of The Dragon Hunters is a Christian middle grade adventure novel. This is the second book in a series, but it can be read as a standalone. However, you will better understand who the characters are if you've read the previous book.

Noah and Nathan are two boys who really like dinosaurs, so they were thrilled to see the local sea monster (Champ) in the last book and to help save her and her babies from dragon hunters. They're now returning to the lake, and they hope to see the sea monster again. Only, the bad guys are also back in another attempt to kill the sea monster. The two boys argued a lot in this book. They must learn to work together to save themselves and the sea monster.

Noah's family was likable while the "bad guy" characters were comical (though still convincing as potentially dangerous). Several characters were Christians who believed that God created dinosaurs about 6,000 years ago and that we knew them by the name "dragons" until the 1800s. There was also some discussion about what the world was like before the worldwide flood and about how dinosaurs might still be alive in modern times. There was no sex, gore, or bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this fun, exciting story.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
