About the book: When a king discovers that there are still singing moon dragons high up on the mountainside, he offers a room full of gold to anyone who can bring one to him. The beautiful dancing dragons only reveal themselves to Alina, a young peasant girl, but she preserves the secret of their whereabouts, knowing that there are some things far more precious than a room full of gold.
Reasons for selection: The Moon Dragons has a straightforward narrative following whether Alina will tell the greedy king about the whereabouts of the moon dragons. However, the themes of truth and value make it a book with potential for rich and deep discussion. The illustrations portray characters in detail which make it accessible for all readers to develop their inference making skills.
