Dragonkeeper by Carole Wilkinson
2003, 2005, Black Dog Books, Fitzroy
A small slave girl with no name and no family helps a dragon escape from the Imperial Dragonkeeper. They go through many trials in their quest to reach the ocean.
It's a fantastic story for children, and very well researched. I felt like I was constantly learning something, whether it be Chinese history, or little morals at the end of every chapter! I guess children aren't supposed to notice that though.
