This isn’t your daddy’s dragon slayer story. Just so you know. I think it is best to be up front about these things, don’t you? Yolen’s tale concerns a town in fantasy England that finds itself under siege from a dragon, after all the dragons are supposed to be dead...

There was nothing I truly loved about this graphic novel only things I liked. I enjoyed the art work which was very different then most graphic novel art. I liked the story especially the switch in who the true hero ended up being but was not fond of the dialogue. I liked the fairy tale feel to...

Nice adaptation of Jane Yolen's short story The Last Dragon as a graphic novel. While younger readers are likely to be oblivious to the central romance of the story, there is nothing included that would make this unsuitable for middle grade readers.

The Last Dragon starts much like a traditional fairy tale, with a dragon and a hero to slay it. It diverges from tradition when the hero teams up with a strong woman to defeat the dragon in a truly unconventional way.

Many generations later the last dragon hatches and wreaks havoc on the unprepared and unsuspecting populace. It is left t...

I requested this because I thought the cover was beautiful and thankfully this isn’t one of those graphic novels where the cover is the best thing about it. The illustrations through the book were gorgeous and had a old world fantasy feel to them, and I actually took the time to study them. I kind o...

The small town of Meddlesome finds itself under attack by a dragon. It's up to the daughter of a healer and a kite-flier trying to pass off as a hero, to save the day. A simple, charming tale accompanied by some spectacular illustrations.

The Last Dragon could have been drawn from the pages of Grimm's Fairy Tales. To focus first on the illustrations, Rebecca Guay has earned her rightful place in my hall of amazing fantasy artists. Her illustrations are delicate, intricate, and flowing. It is impossible not to notice them as you read....
