Master storyteller Jane Yolen (Owl Moon, Sword of the Rightful King) and celebrated fantasy artist Rebecca Guay (Swamp Thing, Magic: The Gathering) weave a textured and lyrical tale of adventure, homelands, and heroism the hard way.
Two hundred years ago, humans drove the dragons from the islands of May. Now, the last of the dragons rises to wreak havoc anew-with only a healer's daughter and a kite-flying would-be hero standing in its way.
* A compelling coming-of-age fantasy with exquisite fully painted art!
"Romantic artwork, rich and elegant in color, powerful in design and line, gives vivid life to this tale of a young village couple outwitting a dragon." -Ursula K. LeGuin
"When one of the world's great fabulists teams with a charming artist to create a graphic album, you expect something special, and you get it. Sometimes funny, sometimes horrifying, sometimes adventurous-this is what fantasy is supposed to be." -Will Shetterly
