Helen Ward/Wayne Anderson

The Dragon Machine has to be one of the best picture books ever.  Wayne Anderson delivers on some of the most amazing illustrations I have seen. You can’t go wrong with dragons! Like most of Wayne Anderson’s works, the illustrations have a soft grainy quality about them and aren’t overpowered with contrast.  The story itself seems simple, but there are plenty of questions one might ask behind the meaning of it all, if there is one.  This is a book I would think Hollywood studios would love a crack at and I hope one day to see a motion picture version.
