Can you keep a secret? What if it is a really big secret with the existence of very special creatures depending on you? This is the question that faces Winnie when she meets the last dragon in the world and his friends. Will she keep their secret?
Castrillon’s screen print techniques create the perfect medium for her narrative which gently explores the boundaries between the imagination and reality. A colour-saturated palette of bright pinks, turquoise greens and a sensitive use of white spaces together with definite outlines creates images that have an almost dreamlike quality combined with an energy that ensures the eye moves across the spreads to turn the page. Winnie and her parents are solid, real, while the mythological creatures are imbued with a sense of the fabulous. This gentle story would be a joy to share, raising as it does questions around fantasy, imagination and the real world and their place for a young audience to explore.
