Waking from a frightening dream on a rainy night, young King Arthur wonders if he deserves to be king at all. He seeks out the company of Merlin, the old magician, who tells Arthur the story of another boy, Emrys, and of the cruel King Vortigern, for whom Emrys's dreams of fierce dragons would come to fiery life. And waiting for Arthur at the end of Merlin's tale is a most important surprise - one that can answer all of the boy king's questions.
'Yolen has created a stirring tale within a tale... The legend comes alive on a grand scale.'

About Jane Yolen

Born and raised in New York City, Jane Yolen now lives in Hatfield, Massachusetts. She attended Smith College and received her master's degree in education from the University of Massachusetts. The distinguished author of more than 170 books, Jane Yolen is a person of many talents. When she is not writing, Yolen composes songs, is a professional storyteller on the stage, and is the busy wife of a university professor, the mother of three grown children, and a grandmother. All of Yolen's stories and poems are rooted in her sense of family and self. The Emperor and the Kite, which was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1983 for its intricate paper-cut illustrations by Ed Young, was based on Yolen's relationship with her late father, who was an international kite-flying champion. Owl Moon, winner of the 1988 Caldecott Medal for John Schoenherr's exquisite watercolors, was inspired by her husband's interest in birding. Li Ming is an illustrator whose works include Merlin and the Dragons.
