Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The follow up to Nytra's lauded The Secret of the Stone Frog (2012) finds Leah and Alan once again searching for adventure. When their village's windmills magically turn into mechanical dragons, the heroic sister and brother go on a quest to rescue St. George the dragon slayer and return three legendary beasts, which guard wind, earth, and water, to their habitats to restore the natural balance. Alan and Leah easily move from task to task, and while that makes the plot seem elementary at times, Nytra's astonishing artwork, from the sweeping set pieces to intriguing character design, makes the voyage worthwhile. Each page is expertly illustrated with thin india ink lines and intricate crosshatching. Nytra methodically details, for example, discernable scales on each of the dragons. The varied environments are equally remarkable, as rough waves lap over Alan and Leah's laughing demonic boat, and roiling clouds slump heavily in the background. The black-and-white palette only accentuates the vivid details and shading, which makes this book resemble some archaic treasure. Another surreal and ingenious journey.--Blenski, Peter Copyright 2015 Booklist"
