by Jane Yolen and Rebecca Guay
There is something aetherial about Rebecca Guay's artwork that just keeps me coming back for more... a certain realism tinged with the sweeping flourishes that tell our eyes we are reading a fairy tale...
The story, written by Jane Yolen, is really quite pleasing, as fairy tales go. We have a strong female as the lead, and her encounters with the world that leave a moral of 'go out and see for yourself'! I would really feel this would be a great choice for a child's library or personal collection, if only because the story is fantastical, but it also makes logical sense.
Sure, there's no REAL dragons, right? Right?
But the world can be a funny place... and sometimes you need bravery AND your mind, to win out in a fight for your life and those you love!
