First and foremost, if you’re not one to appreciate a good folklore or tale of tall tales, magic, and dragons, you won’t enjoy Imlich's Tale: A Woeful Buffeting at the Hands of Fate, or Accident, or Error. This book is for those who still have a bit of child in their heart and loves the ideas of mythical creatures and the magic of those creatures.
This is a story of Imlich, one of a “baker’s dozen” whom his mother has hatched in her nest. She quickly takes a special liking to Imlich, much like you will as you read along with his story. Imlich was among those thought to have the ability to be an heir among the dragons and it seemed to be in the cards for the future as all could see and feel. While he had no clue what that meant, neither he nor his siblings really cared. They just knew that they were hungry often and were certain that they should fly, as all dragons do. Imlich seemed to be the first to comprehend at least the beginning steps to obtaining flight and he quickly helped those siblings that were interested to join him as he taught them the moves he found that brought them each closer to flight, showing he was a leader from the beginning.
Imlich's father, the King, seemed to be very much in love with his mother; unlike so many others who had been brought to the King to serve him in bearing him children. Most made it as the companion to the King for less than two years, some not even close to that time, yet his mother was quickly approaching the two-year mark and the comment was made to her by the King himself that it seems there may be an heir to his throne in their batch of little ones. The love seemed endless and true between the King and Imlich’s mother and the future seemed to be already written.
