Craving more The Dragon Prince since season three wrapped its first act last year? Good news. Wonderstorm and Scholastic are teaming up to release three new books set in the world of The Dragon Prince. The first book is Callum's Spellbook, releasing on March 3rd. The second book is The Dragon Prince: Book 1: Moon, the first installment of a series of The Dragon Prince novels. It releases on June 2nd. The third book is a graphic novel. Through the Moon (The Dragon Prince Graphic Novel #1) will be released on September 15th. All three books are now available for pre-order on Amazon.
As their varying formats suggests, each of these three books is meant to engage The Dragon Prince fans in a different way. Callum's Spellbook is described as "a lighthearted, in-world notebook in which Callum documents, through entries and drawings, all the things he encounters and learns on his journey to Xadia." The Dragon Prince: Book 1: Moon is a core novel that expands on the events of the animated show's first season, adding "deeper characterizations and expanded plotlines." Through the Moon (The Dragon Prince Graphic Novel #1) is an original graphic novel with a new canon story set between seasons three and four of The Dragon Prince series.
"The Dragon Prince animated series offers so many fantasy elements to explore in publishing – dragons, elves, magic and so much more," said Debra Dorfman, Vice President and Publisher, Global Licensing, Brands and Media, Scholastic in a press release. "It's exciting to be working closely with the creators and Wonderstorm. We love that families are watching this series together, and we can't wait to bring all fans into the world of Xadia like never before."
"Deeper and more! We are thrilled to be able to give the fans these three books with new stories, original artwork, and never-before-revealed details and insights," said Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond, co-creators of The Dragon Prince. "Like the show, the books are for a wide age range and give fans a ton of new, insider information about the characters and the world they inhabit."
