Wayne Harris is an award-winning illustrator who also teaches design and illustration. About DragonQuest, he says, "Nothing ever equals the turning of the page to reveal the dragon itself. That one reveal changes everything."
Who doesn't love a quest, especially one in search of a dragon-and
not just any dragon, but the last dragon? ... Wonderfully rich
prose imagery is suitably matched by lavish acrylic-and-digital
Children will enjoy being in on the joke and will appreciate the surprise ending. The not-too-scary goblins, witches, and dragon are rendered in lush, fulsome acrylics and are digitally enhanced. An attractive, easy-to-read addition where there is a demand for picture-book fantasies and adventures
-School Library Journal
Robust prose and melodramatic art make this quest for the last dragon a thrilling one.
