Dragon Feathers by Andrei Dugin


Dragon Feathers by Andrei Dugin

The poor woodcutter's son is sent on a mission to the dark forest to pluck three feathers from the dragon's back. Only then can he marry Beth, the rich innkeeper's beautiful daughter. Along the way, he meets several people in need of his help. But will his kindness and bravery be enough to protect him from the angry dragon? This well-known tale is vividly brought to life by the wonderful, detailed illustrations of Olga Dugina and Andrei Dugin.


'This is a feel good read with beguiling illustrations that will excite any child and adult. Indeed the illustrations themselves are so interesting and mystifying, hours could be spent deciphering them alone.'

. 'The illustrations, however, are spendidly bizarre. The double page spreads present the romantically embellished medieval fairy world of traditional illustration, but the rural idyll has been subtly infiltrated by the grylli, wheeled hybrid creatures and animated bagpipes and Hieronymus Bosch... The text is nestled in a mysteriously extravagant dreamscape which will keep obersvant children wondering and searching for hours. A splendid book.
