The Dragon and the Garden (similar to Milton’s Paradise Lost) retells Adam and Eve’s Fall with a Medieval slant: the serpent is portrayed as a dragon. The artwork is stylized, with muted watercolors. Interesting pictorial elements may trigger family discussion: “prehistoric” creatures are shown in the garden. Designed as a storybook, these could also be read by your stronger young readers; text is ¼” tall. 32 pp, now paperback. ~ Ruth
