Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
A delightful children’s book, telling the story of a dragon, a Scottish lord, and his English wife. It’s quite funny, in the way that a bookish child who has read lots of other English books would enjoy. And the illustrations are marvellous, sweeping across the page whether they’re in black-and-white or color. This is one I wish I had known about earlier, because I know I would have loved it just as much then. Nice, old-fashioned fun, if that’s the sort of thing you like.
