Recognized as a 2020 Honor Book by the American Library Association, this culturally infused audiobook is a great listen for both middle-grade listeners and their parents. Set in Eastern Europe during the tenth century, it focuses on Anya, a brave yet humble girl who takes on the task of capturing the last dragon to save her family's livelihood. Narrator Laura Knight Keating seamlessly delivers this timeless tale in calm tones, highlighting Anya as a kind, relatable character. Author Sofiya Pasternack incorporates a lot of fun and excitement but also isn't afraid to tackle some deeper issues, such as the oppression Anya's Jewish family faces in their small village. These great dynamics make this the perfect audiobook choice for the whole family. N.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
