Synopsis

The Snow Dragon by Vivian French

When the power-crazy Most Royal of Fire Dragons decides he wants to rule not only his own hot southern kingdom but also the icy wastes of the Snow Dragons' northern territory, catastrophe occurs. The Fire Dragon ignores the warning from the powerful Book that Twolegs will eventually destroy his kind, and sets out crisping and frazzling the world. Little Tuft, a Twoleg, can't ignore the warning and enlists the help of the last remaining Snow Dragon in a thrilling and magical quest to save the world from burning up...An entrancing story, lyrically told and gorgeously illustrated, which will be appreciated on a variety of levels by children from pre-school to 8-year-olds and older.

Reviews

Ideal for reading aloud, this is an epic tale of triumph over evil, presented amidst rolling artwork in which the inspired use of perspective emphasises the enormous task facing the central character, the endearing Twoleg, Little Tuft. Recommended Scotsman Vivian French's delightful picture book is a masterful modern fairy tale ... Young children will be captivated by both the story and the pictures and will delight in having this book read to them again and again Schoolsnet.com

'Happening'. From then on the Fire Dragons made the Twolegs'

'Second Happening', and finally order is restored. This is a completely magical tale of good against evil in which the sum of the pictures and text adds up to more than the whole, to create an exquisite book. (6-9 yrs) (Kirkus UK)'
