From the Publisher:
A wicked queen casts a spell over her beautiful stepdaughter, turning her into a loathsome dragon until such time as her wandering brother shall return and kiss her three times.
A lovely princess, a brave prince, a wicked stepmother, evil enchantments, magic rowan wood, and an immense, scaly dragon. . . . Favorite fairytale elements sparkle in The Loathsome Dragon, a traditional English tale. Majestic, romantic paintings by two-time Caldecott medalist David Wiesner display the remarkable artistry and dizzying perspectives his work is known for.
Now available once again—with several new illustrations, revised text, and a brief source note—this picture-book classic will delight David Wiesner’s many fans, and win him a generation of new ones.
David Wiesner grew up loving to draw in Bridgewater, New Jersey, and went on to receive a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1983. Though he was initially not interested in illustrating for children, Wiesner's early foray into creating cover art for a popular kid's magazine, Cricket, put him an extremely successful path that garnered the artist several awards. A three-time Caldecott Medal recipient, Wiesner is best known for his gorgeously detailed, wordless (or sparsely worded) picture books. In 2007, he won the Caldecott for FLOTSAM.
