Naomi and the Dragon

Watermarked PDF

"I love comics, but I can't get my kids/ friends/ romantic partner to read them with me.  I wish there were a comic that appealed to people who aren't into fist fights and eye lasers...."

Here's your chance! Naomi Yamata is an 80-something year old Japanese-American who plays hooky from her elderly-cruise vacation plans, in favor of traveling around the world, looking for a dragon.

Every world culture has a dragon story, and she goes to darn near every corner of the world looking for one!  From Nepal to Norway, Africa to Japan, her adventures land her in colorful and vividly drawn spots around the globe.

What happens if--sorry, when--she finds the dragon?  What if the dragon finds her?

"Naomi and the Dragon" is a story for kids of all ages written by the light mind of Stephanie Bryant and drawn by quirky hand of Toby Strauss. The story follows the style of a Miyazaki film (like "Spirited Away"), and the art is drawn in a folksy, pen and watercolor (with a hint of chibi) style.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
