Elynne is the daughter of a dragon charmer and desperately wants to help her father in his work, but she is a shy girl and the ferocious creatures terrify her. However, when a rare royal dragon flies into Elynne's life and gives birth to a baby male dragon, there seems to be some kind of strange connection between the baby prince and the girl. When it becomes clear that the baby dragon is in mortal danger, Elynne wonders if she will find the courage to protect him. A marvellous fantasy from one of the masters of the genre.
"Elynne is not a brave girl but in this literally charming story, Douglas Hill shows us how love can make heroines of the most unlikely people." Mary Hoffman"
