The six best dragons in literature

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Becky Ferreira tagged the six best dragons in literature, including:
Sir Isaac Newton (Between Planets, by Robert A. Heinlein)

Few things are more satisfying than going on a Heinlein novel binge read, and Between Planets is a great book to start with. Aimed at young adults, the novel follows an Earthling teenager as he goes on an interplanetary adventure with Sir Isaac Newton, a space dragon from Venus. Just read it: it’s nutballs.
