The Last Dragon

February 28, 2012 at 3:28 pm Leave a comment

“The isles ran red with dragon blood till all of them were gone. Or so the humans believed.”

It’s been hundreds of years since the last dragon was vanquished, and the citizens of Meddlesome are sure they’ll never return. But they spoke too soon, for cradled in the roots of a tree is the last remaining dragon egg, which has finally decided to hatch. With farm animals, children, and even the local healer gone missing, only Tansy, the healer’s daughter, can hope to save Meddlesome from the last dragon.

My Review: The beautiful artwork in this graphic novel gave it a dreamlike quality that helped transport me into this fairy tale. I loved that Tansy was the practical and strong one who had to teach Lancot, the “hero,” how to truly be heroic. Give this book a try if you love fantasy stories, lush artwork, and great female characters. Hope you enjoy The Last Dragon by Jane Yolen and Rebecca Guay as much as I did. Check it out today at the library!
