Gondra's Treasure

Linda Sue Park (Author) Jennifer Black Reinhardt (Illustrator)


Gondra, a little dragon with an Eastern dragon dad and a Western dragon mom, celebrates her uniqueness in this sparkling collaboration between Newbery medalist Linda Sue Park and rising star artist Jennifer Black Reinhardt.

Gondra has inherited traits from both her eastern (Asian) dragon dad and western (European) dragon mom and enjoys them all. She's especially happy that she's a combination of both. Cheerful banter and hilariously adorable dragon portrayals present a warm, appealing family portrait. The beautiful and fanciful illustrations are rich in whimsical details that invite repeated readings.

"Writing in the chatty voice of her protagonist, Park captures the easygoing, day-to-day intimacy of a family animated and anchored by unconditional love....Gondra is wonderfully imagined...bright-eyed, adventurous, resilient."--Publishers Weekly

"Young dragon Gondra deftly narrates....a playful [look at mixed-race identity], and readers will enjoy the cultural examination of dragons."--Kirkus

"[Gondra] is proud to come from such diverse cultures....An author's note explains different cultural origins of the dragon myth, and why, for centuries, humans have been fascinated by them. This allegorical adventure will entice a whole new crop."--Booklist
