Fire and Wings : Dragon Tales from East and West
Carus, Marianne (Editor); Mistry, Nilesh (Illustrator); Yolen, Jane (Introduction by)

Newbery Award winner Jane Yolen's enchanting preface "Dragons: An Unnatural History" introduces this collection of 15 dragon stories from England, Western and Eastern Europe, Korea, Japan, and China. Ferocious fire-breathing dragons face off with clever princesses and courageous village girls in a riddle match. But the last dragon in the world is a kind, gentle beast who sheds tears of joy when a princess calls him "dragon dear." Ferocious or kind, wise or wicked, these mythical creatures transport readers to the far corners of the world.
