Product Description

The most wonderful Deltora book of them all. It is beautifully illustrated by Marc McBride and the writing by Emily Rodda is equally stunning as all her writings are. There are two parts to this book. The first part explains the ancient history of the Shadowlands, the Ak-Baba and the Shadowlord. The second is about how Adin, the first king of Deltora and also the maker of the Belt of Deltora, united the seven tribes (Del, Ralad, Plains, Mere, Dread Gnome, Toran and Jalis) and collected each of their gems (the topaz, the ruby, the opal, the lapis lazuli, the emerald, the amethyst and the diamond).

Tales of Deltora Feb. 21 2006
By Amanda Streich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In my opinion this is the most wonderful Deltora book of them all. It is beautifully illustrated by Marc McBride and the writing by Emily Rodda is equally stunning as all her writing is. There are two parts to this book. The first part explains the ancient history of the Shadowlands, the Ak-Baba and the Shadowlord. The second is about how Adin, the first king of Deltora and also the maker of the Belt of Deltora, united the seven tribes (Del, Ralad, Plains, Mere, Dread Gnome, Toran and Jalis) and collected each of their gems (the topaz, the ruby, the opal, the lapis lazuli, the emerald, the amethyst and the diamond). Also for fans who want to order this book right away you can go to Australian on-line bookstores and buy the book there where the book has already been released. And for even more Deltoran delights go to a Japanese bookstore in your area or search on-line for the Deltora comic series issued in Bombom (a monthly Japanese comic magazine). Even though the comic is in Japanese you can pretty much understand what's going on if you've read the books. Thank you Emily Rodda for creating this wonderful series.

Pretty much the Bible of Deltora May 6 2008
By Emily J. Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I did not not exactly what this book would involve. I fell in love two years ago with Rodda's Deltora books and therefore had to read this one--wondering what "Tales" would be included. With all due respect to Ms. Rodda, it's not always wise for authors to go on huge tangents with a fantasy series.

So, happily enough, this stays close to the heart of Deltora. It is a book writtne by Josef the Librarian to give a brief history of Deltora, and is divided into two sections: The Tenna Birdsong tales of Jardis culture (Josef believes these to contain a nugget of truth) that tell of how the world came to be, and the Rise of Adin, which gives a marvelous story of Adin's coming and uniting of the seven tribes that rivals anything else Rodda has written.

This book shows that Rodda's genius of Deltora was not just limited to the series. While this could be enjoyed without reading anything else, it helps flesh out the Deltora magic.

A must-read for any Deltora fan.

Great inspiration for young artists. Nov. 6 2005
By A. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The easy to follow steps have truly inspired my 7 year old. He's been drawing nonstop since we bought the book. The incredible images have helped him learn to add details to his drawings. He is a Deltora fan but I would recommend this book for any dragon and monster lover.

Unique monsters -fun to draw Nov. 10 2007
By K. Larsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Deltora series was a great read for my children, 6 and 10. It was fun to draw the monsters with the kids. They're unique monsters and the book fills in what was missing from our imaginations. The monsters were challenging for my 10 year old, quite difficult for my 6 year old. I end up doing most the drawing and they color the pictures. The diagrams are easy enough to follow. We just really loved the series and the drawing book was the "frosting on the cake".
