Dragon Rider: The Griffin's Feather - Dragon Rider (Paperback)Cornelia Funke (author)
Waterstones Children's Book of the Month for July (2017)
The last winged horses are on the brink of extinction.
Three foals lie curled in their eggs in a sanctuary for threatened creatures, where a young dragon rider lives with his silver dragon. The foals are ill, and the pair volunteer to seek the only cure: a Griffin's feather.
But Griffins, with the heads of eagles and the bodies of lions, are a dragon's fiercest enemy, and live far across the world in the sweltering jungle. A dangerous and exciting adventure begins...
Dragon Rider: The Griffin’s Feather returns us to a story Cornelia Funke began several years before her phenomenal bestseller, Inkheart, was published, with Dragon Rider’s young hero Ben returning to save the day in the company of his fabulous scaled steed Firedrake.
A writer with a unique talent for world-building, German author Cornelia Funke was born in Dorsten, North Rhine-Westphalia. Her first translated novel The Thief Lord became a New York Times bestseller and was followed up by the hugely successful Inkheart trilogy (Inkheart, Inkspell and Inkdeath). She is also the author of the MirrorWorld series and several stand-alone novels including Dragon Rider.
