“Tom Hawkins must find the most powerful weapon ever created and save the world . . . with many a sword fight, swamp dog, and dragon along the way. Fantasy-loving boys (and girls) will be enthralled by this slim, action-packed tale.” —Kirkus Reviews
About the Author
V.L. Burgess is an author and two-time RITA award nominee who loves to spend time outdoors when not writing or poring over ancient maps, looking for adventure. She has always wanted to write for boys and believes they are struggling to find books they can relate to, approaching reading in a more adventurous kind of way. Sharing reading at the earliest possible age is the best way to begin to cultivate good readers but it's never too late. Burgess lives in East Dorset, Vermont. This is her first children's book.
