THE GRIFFIN'S FEATHER Audiobook is here!

Two years after Ben and the silver dragon Firedrake's latest adventure, they've returned. Now, the last winged horses are on the brink of extinction. At a sanctuary for threatened creatures, three foals lie curled up in their eggs. The foals are in great danger, and the only cure seems to be the sun-feather of a griffin. But griffins, creatures with the head of an eagle and the body of a lion, are a dragon's fiercest enemy, and they live far across the world in the sweltering jungle. A dangerous and exciting adventure begins. . . .

What We're Reading Now: Nonfiction

I knew I had to when Roychoudhuri read aloud a sentence that absolutely summed up how I've felt in the last weeks and months: "Many of us are experiencing a shift in our perception of time because of the intensity and trauma of a leadership that shocks us daily—a single day can feel like a week, a week can feel like a month." 

THE GRIFFIN'S FEATHER flies in!

Cornelia's long-awaited sequel to Dragon Rider has flown into bookstores in the U.S. and Canada. After over a decade, Ben, Firedrake, and friends old and new are back, and part of FREEFAB, a conversation organization that aids magical creatures and the humans who love them. 

On Reading, Writing, and Difference-Making

For many of us, it's felt like the past two years have been filled with increasingly-dark political days. It can be difficult to know where to turn, to find what—if anything—can make a dent, can turn a tide. In stories, readers see characters who do the right thing—and the wrong. Particularly as young readers, we learn how to foster empathy, to step outside of ourselves and into others' shoes. In seeing our beloved characters struggle with what's right and wrong, and how they should act, we see the importance of weighing our own moral compasses and standing up for what's right.
