Although Nurk wants to be like his fearless (but long-lost) warrior grandmother, he's not a very brave shrew. He worries about going on adventures: what if he spends his time "wet and cold and hungry and without clean socks"? Then a mysterious letter arrives with a desperate plea for help. It is meant for his grandmother, but Nurk decides that he has no choice but to go in her place. Before long, he finds himself on a dragonfly-prince-saving mission that would intimidate even the biggest, baddest, and bravest of adventurers. Black-and-white art.
