DRAGONBREATH by Ursula Vernon Signing: Sat. June 27, 1pm -3pm!

Chapel Hill Comics is proud to announce a signing for Ursula Vernon’s new book, Dragonbreath. In Dragonbreath, Ursula Vernon uses both comic panels and text to tell the story of Danny Dragonbreath, the only mythical dragon in a school for reptiles and Amphibians.

It’s a fun read, with appealing, whimsical art, and great for kids, but you don’t have to take our word for it! Kirkus gave Dragonbreath a starred review which stated: “…Danny D’s first outing will leave readers in stitches– and on tenterhooks waiting for the next one…”

Ursula’s books are no stranger to praise. Oprah’s Book Club included Ursula’s previous book, Nurk: The Strange, Surprising Adventures of a (Somewhat) Brave Shrew, on its Kids Reading List for kids 10 to 12 years old!

We’re very pleased to host Ursula for this signing. She’s an excellent writer and artist, and is creating books for young readers, the most important readers out there!

Ursula will sign copies of Dragonbreath and Nurk at Chapel Hill Comics in downtown Chapel Hill on Saturday, June 27, from 1pm until 3pm. Bring your kids, pick up copies of these acclaimed books, and get them signed by the author!
