Today’s short post is about a fabulous picture book I recently found called The Moon Dragons, by Dyan Sheldon, illustrated by Gary Blythe.
I love encouraging my nieces and nephews to discover fantasy and science fiction, especially dragons, and when I saw the beautiful illustrations in this book, I couldn’t resist getting it for them for Christmas. It’s a simply story, but captivating nonetheless:
When a king discovers that there are still singing moon dragons high up on the mountainside, he offers a room full of gold to anyone who can bring one to him. The beautiful dancing dragons only reveal themselves to Alina, a young peasant girl, but she preserves the secret of their whereabouts, knowing that there are some things far more precious than a room full of gold.
I’m off to write! Stay creative, everyone!
