In French with English subtitles
Bristle is a little girl raised by dragons. She breathes fire and is as strong as ten men, yet she is not actually a dragon. When her father must repay a debt to Sorcerog, Bristle is given away to the froggy witch. Driven to despair, she flees the family cave and embarks on a journey of discovery into the world of humans. Among them, she will learn the meaning of friendship and solidarity—and greed, which seems to eat away at humans’ hearts. With the help of her new friend Princess, Bristle will take on the greedy King to save her father.
From the unexpected duo Anthony ‘Tot’ Roux and Jean-Jacques Denis (Dofus, Mutafukaz), Princess Dragon bristles with lush watercolor landscapes.
