Nina Victor Crittenden is an artist, certified veterinary technician, mother of two, and a self-proclaimed night owl and daylily junkie. She has never met a dragon, but was once an iguana-sitter. She loves popcorn, can’t do cartwheels, and has always wanted to go to Switzerland.
Nina lives in Minnesota with her husband, daughters, dog, and cat. Cedric and the Dragon is her first book.
In this Stories Behind the Stories video, Nina shares how her love of animals inspires her drawings, and how a few illustration decisions during the creation of Cedric and the Dragon made the friendship between young prince Cedric and the dragon extra special.
