The Language of Spells
Dragons are all around us - but we don't see them because we are too busy and we don't expect to.
Grisha the dragon has had an interesting life - if you can call 60 years as a teapot interesting. When that spell was finally broken he started life in Vienna where the remaining dragons lived restricted lives and some dragons were under a sleeping spell.
Then along comes Maggie - one of the few who can see dragons. Together she and Grisha set out to wake the sleeping dragons and forge a wonderful friendship.
The story unfolds slowly but there is some great sentence level writing and it is a poignant story of friendship.
