About Dragon Mystic

I fell in love with dragons when I read Tea With the Black Dragon, and never looked back. Not the clunky winged Medieval dragons that ate cows, the graceful Asian dragons that could fly without wings. Later I discovered the elegant Welsh dragons, red and white, as described by R.J. Stewart in his books on the historical Merlin.

    Very enjoyable I bought this book for our daughter, whom we adopted from Vietnam, so that when she grew up she could get sense of her country of origin, but since she is still very little I decided to read it myself, and I am enjoying it very much. There is much in the book that gives you a sense of life in Vietnam and of the Vietnamese people’s thought, even though the tales are in an age far removed from the present and the morale of the stories apply to all, as in all fairy tales. I will enjoy reading it again to my daughter when she is a little older.

    The Perfect Gift I bought this for friends of mine – a young Vietnamese couple with two children. The woman was thrilled when she saw it. The book was in perfect condition, and when my friends saw it, she was so excited. She recognized the author as a famous writer (or person) in Vietnam.
