A Gift of Dragons: Illustrated Stories Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For more than thirty years, Pern has conjured visions of brave men and women mounted upon the backs of dragons. As anyone knows who has been touched by the storytelling magic of Anne McCaffrey, to read of the exotic world of Pern is to inhabit it — and to experience its extraordinary dragons is to soar aloft with them and share their dazzling adventures.

Now, A Gift of Dragons brings together three beloved stories and a thrilling new tale of Pern in a single volume illustrated with beautiful artwork by Tom Kidd. In "The Smallest Dragonboy," Keevan is the youngest dragonrider candidate, determined to impress a dragon when the next clutch of eggs hatches. But what transpires will surprise everyone — Keevan most of all. In "The Girl Who Heard Dragons," a young girl’s rare ability to communicate with dragons puts her family in danger and will bring her face to face with her greatest fears — and with her most secret desire. The "Runner of Pern" is a girl named Tenna, who follows family tradition by delivering messages — and who will find her destiny on the mossy traces that runners have used for centuries under the dragon-filled sky. And finally, a very special gift: an exciting new Pern adventure, published here for the first time, fresh from the imagination of Anne McCaffrey.

Review:

"McCaffrey's legions of fans will warmly welcome this delightful, handsomely illustrated collection of four stories set on the planet Pern." Booklist

Review:

"Tom Kidd's illustrations of cuddly dragons and their human companions add extra value." Publishers Weekly
