Even though she’s only 12 years old, Lily McKinley already feels the weight of the world’s brokenness. She’s seen it in her mother’s exhaustion, her grandmother’s illness, and the cruelty of Adam, the bully at her school. But most tragically, she experienced it two months ago when her father died in a terrible accident.

As an artistic daydreamer, Lily has a brilliant imagination to help her cope, but that imagination often gets her into trouble. One day, it transports her to a fantasy world called the Somnium Realm, where her father’s secret history embroils her in an epic quest. With the help of a dragon guide named Cedric, Lily battles evil shrouds, harpies, and other creatures to find her way through grief, rescue the world from evil, and discover the power of redemption.

This thrilling novel by Kathryn Butler mixes fantasy with Christian themes, taking kids 8-12 on a quest through castles, forests, and caverns to help a young girl find hope and usher in restoration.

- Christian Themes: This exciting story invites readers into deep conversations about the gospel and theological issues including faith, mourning, sacrifice, salvation, and redemption

- Ideal for kids 8-12 and Families: Includes kids’ favourite fantasy and adventure elements with imaginative new characters and settings they’ll love

The Dragon and the Stone displays all the imagination a book about the realm of dreams should have. The stakes are high—in that realm, and this—but it’s worth braving the dangers.

The Dragon and the Stone invites young readers to make an exciting journey into the realm of dreams with Lily McKinley and her eccentric companions. With a great deal of inventiveness and a touch of whimsy, Kathryn Butler takes the reader on a perilous ride that they won't want to end. I was gripped from the first chapter, and I expect families will soon be clamoring for the next book in The Dream Keeper Saga!
