The Dragon’s Treasure book cover

A timeless, classic story of knights and dragons with a new twist that instead of strength, study and planning can help you reach your goals.

In the kingdom of Conchobhar there was a terrible storm that destroyed all the crops. So the king called all his knights and told them that they needed to seek a treasure protected by the black dragon. The black dragon lived beyond the land where the bears lived,  past the swamp, wicked witch and an octopus.

Prince Sean wanted to go with the knights but his father the king would not let him go because he was too young. Sean decided he would study and learn all about the difficulties the knights would face so he could figure out how to solve those problems.

One by one the knight returned unable to recover the treasure. So Prince Sean set out determined to reach the treasure. Because of all the studying and planning he had done Sean was able to overcome or outsmart the wicked witch and octopus and the black dragon.

The illustrations are modern and timeless, with nostalgic images of dragons, knights and royalty that blend well with the natural environment.
