Three tasks for a dragon / Eoin Colfer ; illustrated by P.J. Lynch.

Colfer, Eoin, (author.). Lynch, Patrick James, (illustrator.).


"After his father's death, Prince Lir is tricked into embarking on a perilous quest to rescue a maiden from a dragon. The studious young prince is no warrior, but he uses his brains to make himself indispensable to the ill-tempered dragon. However, neither prince nor dragon has bargained on the dark magic that manipulates them both -- and it may be left to the maiden herself to save them all. A clever prince, an unsuspectingly powerful woman, and an ornery dragon with heart are at the center of this luminously illustrated classic in the making."-- Inside book jacket flap.
