The Tale of Jane Sadear by Liana-Melissa Allen is a lovely children's book about a young girl named Jane Sadear and the Land of Aldon. The Land of Aldon was plagued by a great, big, evil dragon. The king wanted to get rid of the dragon, so he asked for any knight brave enough to fight it to come to his palace. For many days no knight showed up, until finally Jane showed up. When the king saw that she was just a young girl, the king laughed, but Jane would not be deterred. She rode off to the cave where the dragon lived. She approached the dragon silently, but not silently enough. The dragon woke up and the two started battling. Will Jane Sadear be able to defeat the dragon?
I really enjoyed reading The Tale of Jane Sadear by Liana-Melissa Allen. The story is very well written and it rhymes. The rhyming is very well done and gives the book a fun rhythm that children will enjoy. The story is very inspiring, because Jane is a young girl, and everyone underestimates her, but she was the only one brave enough to even try to slay the dragon. The book is full of many likeable characters, especially Jane, who is kind and brave. The story is filled with lots of action and suspense. The pictures by Liana-Melissa Allen are very well drawn and clearly depict each scene. I would definitely recommend this book to all young readers.
