Publisher: Jay Kristoff
Publishing Date: 2012
Genre: Children, Steampunk
Format: Paperback
Page count: 33

My rating:

4 of 5 hearts

Without spoiling Stormdancer, Jay Kristoff’s companion children’s book The Little Stormdancer delivers the charming tale of Yukiko and her companion griffon (‘thunder tiger’) Buruu in a condensed, simplified version, weaving the familiar themes of environmental protection and animal welfare also found in the full-length novel.

The repeated motifs, clear positive messages, and adorable illustrations ensure that this will be a picture book repeatedly read to my own children. Whether they like it or not.

This book was a gift to those who attended Stormdancer’s launch party.
