Synopsis can be found here.
Isn’t it beautiful? The deep red book, imitating old leather. The golden embelishes at the corners. The whimsical and innocent picture of the girl, facing a very fantastical dragon, who has a lock around his belly. I love her green sweater and orange skirt, the dragon’s red devil tail and long thin claws.
And what I believe really draws you to the cover, is the lettering. Bolder in parts, highlighting the words Girl and Fairyland, the clear yet slightly embellished font. You can see the magic.
