Cedric and the Dragon is a sweet fairy tale about a gentle prince that is a little different than everyone is used too. Although everyone loves him they are a little disappointed in his lack of skills. His father wants him to be a dragon slayer. Cedric brings down the terrible beast but not the way everyone thinks he should.This captivating story has a message of kindness and peace. It also teaches that everyone is special in their own way with their own talents and skills.Nina's beautiful illustrations are done in pastel colors and brings a calm and captivating magic to the story. Her whimsical characters help bring life to this fairy tale. Your children will not only love to hear the story but will want to study each illustration in detail.My daughters loved the book. My four year old wants to watch the "cartoon" (there is no cartoon). She giggled at the pictures and I had to wait to turn the pages until she was done inspecting each one. This book has it all. A wonderful story and charming illustrations that are sure to make this a favorite in your home.This book was given to me for a free and honest review.
