Well, it's not Father's Day anymore--not here anyway--it's technically way early the next day. But I still think it appropriate to link this book to Father's Day, since it's about a girl on a quest to save her dad.
But...honestly, what else do I say about this? It's part of the DragonKeepers series--a prequel...sorta :). It's written by Donita K. Paul. I really don't need to go any farther. The DragonKeepers series is one of my favorites EVER, and The Vanishing Sculptor is right up there with the rest of the books in the series. Awesome characterization, great action, wit, vocabulary building--her books have it all.
I love that this book takes place in a different time and country, but still has a couple of the old characters. I won't say who, but they brought a smile to my face!
Tipper's father, Verrin Schope, disappears one day. Tipper has to sell his artwork in order to make ends meet, but in doing so she inadvertantly puts her father in mortal danger. She and a rather interesting band of friends head off on a quest to save her father's life.
If you loved the DragonKeepers series, you will love this book. If you haven't read the series...do.
