Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Valerio the dragon and Allegra the unicorn have always lived happily amid the majestic trees of the Ardet Forest, and in harmony with the animals that call the forest home. But one day Valerio discovers King Orlando cutting down trees to build a shelter. Only the king's young daughter, Arianna, seems sympathetic to the animals who are losing their homes. But can she save them all before it is too late?

The author of The Great Kapok Tree creates a stirring environmental story about preserving old-growth forests. With help from the king's young daughter, Valerio the dragon and Allegra the unicorn convince King Orlando to stop cutting down trees and preserve a part of the forest for humans and animals to share. Full color.

Review:

"Cherry's...luxuriant watercolors beckon the reader to share her romantic vision of wilderness." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[An] enticing book that will please those looking for dragon and unicorn stories, as well as those on an ecological quest." School Library Journal

One of my favorite books to read to my child because it helps her understand better what her relationship with nature should truly be...respectful and in awe. I love this book! I wish more children's books were like this...showing the magic all around us.
