LoveReading View on The Moon Dragons

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 Synopsis

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.
