Dear Readers:
The Moon Prince will be posting “reruns” for the next year or so. This is because I'm currently revising the older pages of the book so the color and style of the drawings are consistent from beginning to end. As a result, the “reruns” are actually quite different from the way they looked when I first posted them years ago. I hope you enjoy seeing these newly spiffed-up pages, and I hope you'll stick around to see the last part of The Moon Prince, starting in the fall of 2018.
Your pal,

  1. plot question:
    Dactyl can fly.
    At this point I would expect Dactyl to jump out of the ship ASAP, ditch these guys and get back home warn the bats of the impending attack.

  2. Hi, Bruce
    That's an excellent question! Dactyl could indeed fly all the way home to bat country, but it's very far (hundreds of miles) and he knows the pirate/human forces would almost certainly beat him there. Max and Molly's ship would be a much faster and easier way for Dactyl to get home if they can get it to work AND if he could somehow gain the upper hand over Kitiko (ideally by throwing him overboard). Plus he knows he'd get a hero's welcome for capturing such an advanced vessel!
    Thanks for reading!
