The Dragon of Ynys by Minerva Cerridwen

The Dragon of Ynys Cover: The title is written across the center top half in a fairy tale script over a grainy pastel background of a pink sky and a peach sun, above whimsical mountains in tones of pink, lavender, and grey. A striking black dragon with elegant curves to his body and purple tones to his upwardly extended webbed wings walks forward, as two much smaller humans follow. The first is taller, with longer hair, and wearing a dress or skirt. The second is shorter, with a blockier look. The author’s name is written across the bottom in the same font as the title.

Blurb: Every time something goes missing from the village, Sir Violet makes his way to the dragon’s cave and negotiates the item’s return. It’s annoying, but at least the dragon is polite.

But when the dragon hoards a person, that’s a step too far. Sir Violet storms off to the mountainside to escort the baker home, only to find a more complex mystery—a quest that leads him far beyond the cave. Accompanied by the missing baker’s wife and the dragon himself, the dutiful village knight embarks on his greatest adventure yet.

The Dragon of Ynys is an inclusive fairy tale for all ages.
