About the Book
Pikwik the blue dragon has lived in the Mississippi River for thousands of years. Like all blue dragons, Pikwik's life is enriched by her psychic communications with the people in her territory. When Pikwik realizes that fascists are beginning to take over, she chooses a young woman named Matilda to champion an anti-fascist resistance movement. With Pikwik's help, Matilda finds support for this movement in an ex-magician, an alien from another planet, and various other unusual characters. They might not have much in common, but they all agree that fascism sucks. And sometimes that's enough.
