Tad Williams and Deborah Beale on The Dragons of Ordinary Farm
By Jeff VanderMeer for Omnivoracious
This summer NYT Bestselling author Tad Williams teamed up with his wife, Deborah Beale, for The Dragons of Ordinary Farm, a wonderful fantasy novel aimed at ages 9 to 12. Tyler and Lucinda, sent to the farm of a distant relative, discover–to both their delight and sometimes their horror–that the farm is not “ordinary” at all. In fact, great-uncle Gideon has a menagerie of all manner of fantastical creatures. What else does the farm hide, and how could a vacation suddenly be full of all sorts of peril?
