A Piece of Passion from Barry Cunningham, Publisher ‘When I first started flying on a dragon’s back in Cornelia Funke’s amazing Dragon Rider, I couldn’t catch my breath. Now, I’m ready to embark on new adventures: extraordinary animals and devious foes await. Luckily, I’ve already made some brilliant friends. Come with us – there’s plenty of room on my dragon! But be sure to look carefully at the map at the front for the book, and the really useful WHO’S WHO on page 343 . . . oh, and try not to fall off!’
The comment from Lovereading will follow.
The last winged horses are on the brink of extinction. Three foals lie curled in their eggs in a sanctuary for threatened creatures, where a young dragon rider lives with his silver dragon. The foals are ill, and the pair volunteer to seek the only cure: a Griffin's feather.

The sequel to the bestselling Dragon Rider which has sold 100,000 copies in the UK.
