"It is the tale of a dragon. It is the tale of a kite. It is the tale of a healer and a storyteller...heroic in spite of themselves and because of the dragon. That's what dragons are for, after all, to call forth heroes."
So begins "Dragonfield", by celebrated author Jane Yolen. Paired with Milbre Burch's "Metamorphosis" (James Tiptree Jr. Award Semi-Finalist), these two contemporary fairy tales of true love and high adventure will enchant and entertain you.

"Two unique tales that adapt classical fairy tale motifs of transformation - the slaying of a dragon and the marriage of a prince to a frog - and make them contemporary." (Yellow Moon Press) "Milbre Burch beautifully communicates a set of values rarely found in fairy tales.... Where else would one of the prince brothers bring home his male beloved?" (Ladyslipper Catalog)
