The Dwellers of the Red Forest by kerembeyit The Dwellers of the Red Forest by kerembeyit
This is my latest piece that I've made for The Catalogue Of Fantastic Literature by Phoenix Publishing.
There's a short story in the it which is written by S. Erdem Türközü. The illustration is about that story.

The story is about a clumsy dragon who likes to read a lot but always gets so excited in the end of the stories and accidently burns the books. "What on earth a dragon likes to read about?" you may ask..Well, he usually reads about his profession which are:
"A Guide to Avoid Stubborn Knights", "Princesses Kidnapping" and stuff like that :)

Anyhow, he finds the solution in the town nearby by kidnapping a girl and making her read the stories for himself.
Then, they become friends.. Then.. Well, I probably shouldn't tell the rest of the story.

Enjoy :)

as long as he doesn't get excited and accidentally burn his reader... I doubt she'd appreciate that

This is great! I've actually had that idea myself - big, scary creature loves to read but keeps damaging the books, so he gets someone to read for him. It's great to know that other people think the same.

very, very nice picture
I'm thinking of using the idea of the dragon in a story I am doing in my school. Do I have permission to do so?

Reminds me of the 'Dragonheart' series for some reason.

not to alarm you but i think someone may have stolen this picture. i recognized it immediately from a book i have "the secret history of dragons" by J. Renison. other than small changes like the dragon being flipped to look the other way and the scenery, its an EXACT copy. i actually got the book out to compare. Im sorry if this ends up being nothing but i just wanted to be sure you knew.
