This short story follows a young book/paper-making apprentice, Willum, a hard working young man who doesn't quite fit in because he really excels at, and loves, his chosen career; he is a skilled artist in the making. Sadly, Willum takes a horrendous fall and hovers near death. (I felt really heartbroken for him.)
Here is where the story gets quite fascinating. While Willum lay unconscious, he sees a beautiful yet unbelievable little butterfly. He figures he must be dreaming. It changes color and he soon realizes it is a little dragon; a Dragil. He finds out it is not a dream, or some mythical creature, but a part of his world.
I will stop here because I do not want to give away of the wonderfully sweet parts of the well written and very creative story. Nor do I want give away any of the heart stopping or heart breaking results of Willum's actions and those of the characters around him.
I recommend this to all readers and especially to Moms and Dads looking for a new style fairy tale to read to their children. Note: Parents, you may after ad-lib a few spots but it is a story i would have read to my kids.
