‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Cornelia Funke
Age Range: 9-11
Threatened by the approach of humans who will destroy the dragons’ colony,
a young dragon called Firedrake embarks on an amazing journey in search of a
magical place. The Rim of Heaven, according to legend, is a place where dragons
can live peacefully and free from all danger. Firedrake, his brownie friend Sorrel
and an orphaned boy, Ben, encounter all kinds of mythical creatures – elves,
mountain dwarves and friendly humans – on a fantastical adventure that will
change their lives forever. Their biggest threat is Nettlebrand, a heartless monster
from the past, who wants to destroy all the silver dragons. Another imaginative
fantasy by best-selling author, Cornelia Funke.
The wonderful narrative style will engage any young reader and drag them inside the story to become part of this magical quest, full of exciting encounters and humorous moments. An ideal book for any fantasy lover.
