Dragon Rider: The Griffin’s Feather

By Cornelia Funke

Chicken House

Griffin's Feather


In DRAGON RIDER Firedrake, a brave young dragon, embarks on a magical journey to find the legendary place where silver dragons can live in peace forever. Along the way, he discovers extraordinary new friends and a courage he never knew he had. But the greatest enemy of all is never far behind – a heartless monster intent on destroying the last dragons on earth…

And in a heart-stopping new adventure, THE GRIFFIN’S FEATHER, the last winged horses are on the brink of extinction. Three foals lie ill, trapped curled in their eggs, in a sanctuary for threatened (and mystical) creatures. Ben – a young dragon rider – volunteers to seek the only cure: a griffin’s feather. His silver dragon, Firedrake, agrees to help. But griffins are a dragon’s fiercest enemy, and they live far away in the sweltering jungle.

A dangerous and exciting adventure begins …
