The Lovereading4Kids comment
A spell-binding and incredibly moving story coupled with illustrations that will take your breath away, tells the story of a poor, young peasant girl who desperately wants to succeed where others have failed and bring to the king an ancient, singing moon dragon in return for some gold. That is until she's laughed at by the king and his villagers for even thinking she might succeed. A timeless picture book to be returned to time and time again.
The Moon Dragons by Dyan Sheldon
When a king discovers that there are still singing moon dragons high up on the mountainside, he offers a room full of gold to anyone who can bring one to him. The beautiful dancing dragons only reveal themselves to Alina, a young peasant girl, but she preserves the secret of their whereabouts, knowing that there are some things far more precious than a room full of gold.
A wonder to look at and a joy to read aloud. Wendy Cooling
A hauntingly beautiful fable with a strong message about greed and the environment. Absolutely gorgeous artwork The Bookseller
