Thought of this book in a passing conversation about dragons in a bookshopI m so very glad I read this boo Review from circa 1989This is one of those books that almost makes me wish I was a classroom teacher again because it s the sort of thing that demands to be read to a room full of 12 year oldsA Book Dragon is the delightful tale of Nonesuch a dragon who adopts an illustrated manuscript as his personal treasure and defends it against all comers Nonesuch survives into the present day by "shrinking to insect size and becomes a fly on the wall observer "to insect size and becomes a fly on the wall observer various human comings and goings Kushner is thus able to give us the Cook s tour of the ast 500 years Of Civilization And A Parade Of Various civilization and a parade of various archetypes He concludes this portrayal of social evolution appropriately enough with the archetypal sf fanThere is not much physical action of the dragon verses knight variety here no massed armies fighting each other for the succession no heroic hobbits taking on evil sorcerers no high speed car chases In typical Canadian style most of the action takes place off stage and instead of battling the forces of evil the protagonists simply endure their enemies with a uiet stoicism Violence is depicted as cowardly or unproductive and even when fully justified Nonesuch finds it distasteful in both sense of the word Nonesuch s own role in the story is As If Being 12 3/4 Isn't Bad Enough, My Mother Is Running for President! largely restricted to interested observer and when he does occasionally intervene in the affairs of men he does so anonymously and without heroic blusterLike all great books however this one can be read at severalevels Many children s authors erroneously believe that keeping the story simple means avoiding any kind of emotional or intellectual depth In sharp contrast Kushner treats his readers to some rather nice symbolism *and a goodly number of philosophical asides which children will find both accessible *a goodly number of philosophical asides which children will find both accessible thought provoking When dragons eat people for example they take on the victim s thoughts so killing evil doers simply means you sink to their Stickman Odyssey, Book 2: The Wrath of Zozimos level There is also an undertone of humor throughout the story which pokes gentle fun at human weakness and Nonesuch s own early pretensions This occasionally erupts into black comedy as the off stage action hints at sinister deeds but this merely adds to the story s profundityKushner s previous book The Violin Maker s Gift won the 1980 Canadian Library Association s Book of the Year for Children Award and this one seems an eually worthy contribution to children siterature A The Last of the Tribe little marvel of a book The story of the dragon Nonesuch growing up with his grandmother and what she taught him Particularly the importance of guarding his treasure How sheeft him and he earned how to grow smaller as well as arger and how he came to regard an illuminated Book of Hours as his treasure and what he had to do to guard itThe interior art is something else It s the The Book of Air lovelyittle marginalia ike that it describes in the Book of Hours that give it a particularly nice touchA ight and frothy book The narrator s voice is handled well and fills in everything you need to know of the background nicely Fun to read.

Lovely it was to see Nonesuch interact and observe the Priest many books have a negative view of Christians but this book mentioned the Bible and Christians several times and never in a rude or demeaning way which I found endearing I Recommend this book to anyone wanting to read about a dragon who finds his perfect treasure This story was not as smooth as I would have iked but the story is so sweet and covers so much of the England history that I The Seduction of Miranda Prosper love so I appreciated it overall If youove books andor English history you will enjoy this oneA few bitesFor several generations now they had The Warrior Princess of Pennyroyal Academy lost the ability to breathe fire The only traces that remained of this once mighty power were the internal fires that caused their eyes to glow and to give forth enoughight for the dragons to find their way in pitch darkness And she added that kept their blood warm so that they were active in all weathers not sluggish in fall and sleeping in winter The Pierced Heart like theowly reptiles that sometimes dared to claim kinship with themI ve earned it from other butterflies she replied as if this should have been obvious We tell each other everything that happens So it s as if none of us obvious We tell each other everything that happens So it s as if none of us at all She darted over the dragon s back and added politely I l tell them about you Years from now the butterflies will remember that once a small dragon came to their poolIt took "him only a few days to earn to read It might seem an unbelievably short time but you should "only a few days to earn to read It might seem an unbelievably short time but you should that many animals must earn things much faster than humans can But Nonesuch in the present year 1665 was over two hundred and fifty years old He was already full of his grandmother s wise sayings and experience of the world than any human could possess So that once the rat told him the names and sounds of the different etters and showed him how they were put together he began to read as if he had always known how It disturbed him that the spelling of words was sometimes irrational as English spelling was and still is but he accepted this as the sort of thing to be expected from a human invention How have I not reviewed this delightful book before A tragedyThis charming charming tale is the story of a dragon who becomes obsessed with watching a monk illuminate beautiful book Dragons you see can make themselves Theres Always a Trail / Home in the Valley larger or smaller depending on what they eat A steady diet of humans will make them asarge as a cottage but this dragon in order to watch the manuscript taking shape starts eating smaller and smaller prey vermin insects etc so that he is small enough to hide within the pages of the book It becomes his treasure and he guards it through the years So charming If this book had been written post Harry Potter it would have been considered YA or even middle grade but when I discovered it since it was fantasy it was shelved in the adult section Another tragedy If there were to be a ist of prime examples of a ist of hidden gems this book would most certainly be in the top 10 of hidden gems I had never heard of this author or book ever before I was surprised to hear when a friend who is very much into reading and about reading obscure titles.
