The Vanishing Sculptor Donita K Paul
The Vanishing Sculptor. Is that a great title or what? I have not yet read The Vanishing Sculptor, but I have a few friends that are die hard DragonKeeper fans, and their recommendations have motivated me to read this book by the Queen of DragonKeepers, Donita K Paul.
The Vanishing Sculpture takes place in the same world as the DragonKeeper Chronicle series, only earlier and in a different location. Young, insecure Tipper, a female emerlindian, is shocked when her sculptor father disappears. In his absence, the family estate falls apart, along with Tipper’s mother’s health. Tipper is forced to sell her father’s artwork in order for them to survive. When she discovers that she has inadvertently put her father in danger, it looks as if Tipper, alone, must save her father. But, with the help of some colorful companions, Tipper and her friends set out to save her father’s life. On their way, they not only find adventure, wizards and unusual librarians, but also miracles and grace.
Some things I’ve heard about The Vanishing Sculptor by Donita K Paul:
The Vanishing Sculptor is right up there with the rest of the books in the Dragonkeeper series.
I love that this book takes place in a different time and country, but still has a couple of the old characters. I won't say who, but they brought a smile to my face!
If you loved the DragonKeepers series, you will love this book. If you haven't read the series...do.
I read the first chapter on Donita’s website. I broke out into a joyful laugh over the character: Beccaroon, a very large parrot. I really liked the author’s description of the main character, Tipper -–The colors that Tipper had “decorated her face” with and the “fancy braid that started at the crown of her head”. The first chapter looks like we are in store for some truly interesting and alluring characters.

My favorite quote from a friend regarding the author:
Mrs. Paul is the only author for which I own a t-shirt. It's got a picture of a dragon on it, and says, "Look wise, say nothing, and eat only those who annoy you."
Look what Donita K. Paul said...
