Fourth-year English student Susie Murray is releasing her first book, Kate and the Dragon, for ages three and up. The picture book follows a knight named Kate and a wizard named Sebastian as they use their creative puzzle-solving skills to rescue a dragon.

Susie wrote the fantasy/adventure story and her friend Sarah Johnston created the illustrations. It’s Book 1 of a series called The Avalier Adventures; Book 2 is already in the works, and should be out within a year.

The book will be released on Monday, Feb. 21 (Family Day), in paperback, eBook, and hardcover. It will be available to purchase online through Susie’s website, in local bookstores, or directly from her by emailing
