Lets take a step back. Back to a place, and a time full of enchantment...
... where a magical forest acts as the gatekeeper to the fantastic, the strange...
... and the beautiful.
Oh, and one fearsome dragon too!
Dragon Feathers is the story of one young man's journey to win the heart of the maiden he loves, with lots of adventures and wit thrown in for good measure. But what completely captivated me were the illustrations.
Like something out of a monastic volume, I felt like I had been transported back to the 16th century. Vivid colors, strange and wonderful creatures, and that hat! The dragon's wife was by far my favorite. The story was great, but honestly I would just get this book for the pictures...
