Love is love and dragons are evil or are they really?

The Dragon Princess is a story about love and how it holds the power to transform even the coldest of hearts.

A classic bedtime story for children of all ages written by bestselling author Hans M Hirschi and beautifully illustrated by Felicity Swan.

Editor's Review:
It's a [very] long time since I read a traditional fairy tale for me rather than for children or [cough] grandchildren. My favourites were The Magic Porridge Pot and The Enormous Turnip, although I recall being in awe of the intricate embroidery work on Cinderella's ballgowns, and Rumpelstiltskin scared the life out of me, as did Hansel and Gretel.

The classic fairy tale books of my younger childhood contained a good deal more story than modern fairy tales, or perhaps that's just how I remember them. Either way, the first time I set eyes on Hans M Hirschi's The Dragon Princess, it felt like a proper fairy tale, made all the more beautiful by Felicity Swan's rich, vibrant illustrations.

And, of course, it has all the necessary elements of the classic fairy tale: a love that transcends social barriers, a terrifying yet (potentially) redeemable adversary, and a happily ever after.

The Dragon Princess is the first story featuring Valerius and Evander, and an excellent addition to your child's bookshelf, the classroom and/or the school/local library.*
