Deep in the Louisiana swamp is the last surviving dragon. Once known has Lord Highfire (hard from Harper Perennial), Vern has his television, whisky and breakfast cereal and is just as happy to avoid humans who killed all his relatives three thousand years ago. Into his life comes fifteen-year-old Everett Moreau, known as Squib since blowing off one of his fingers. He got there being chased by Regence Hooke, a crooked constable, who had just murdered Squib’s potential employer. As boy and dragon find ways to get closer, Hooke spies on the dragon and thinks to use him to attack his enemies, a plan that involves kidnapping Squib. Vern is a very old and crotchety , but even he can come to care for the young boy. Eoin Colfer tells a tale that rooted in the deep south and lots of fun.Review printed by Philadelphia Free Press
