Blue Memorable Moments - The Smallest Dragonboy

Did you think Memorable Moments was finished now? Wrong...

What are your memorable moments from The Smallest Dragonboy?

This is a completly subjective thing...

Mine:

Keevan making his way to the hatching ground, broken leg and all, fearing he's too late

I loved this book, and it has to be his finally getting to impress his dragon. This one helps us all feel the we too could impress a dragon, if we were given the chance.

Same one Jayru mentioned. He might've been small and injured, but he was sure determined! :

I love all of it! He was detrimined to be dragonrider from the start of the story. Even more so, when he was injured.

Favorite part, when he impressed, and didn't realized it

After he's dragged himself all the way to the Hatching Grounds, and then he thinks he's too late and he's trying to hide, and crying, and then something bumps into him...

Or in "The Gift of Dragons", it is the first story in that book. That is where I just finished re-reading it. This story is so wonderful, and suspencful not knowing if he is going to be able to impress the dragon.
