Dragon Rider 2: The Griffin's Feather - Written & Illustrated by Cornelia Funke
The long awaited sequel to the bestselling Dragon Rider, featuring stunning cover art from Laura Ellen Anderson.
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 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...
What Cornelia says about writing the sequel to Dragon Rider:
'My characters welcomed me with open arms and hearts. They kept no secrets, but they have changed as well! Which made it even more adventurous to follow them once again. Like me they were worried about the state of the world, the plundering of nature, the disrespect for fellow creatures, and like me had come to the conclusion that worrying doesn’t really help anyone and that something had to be done.' -- Cornelia Funke
