This is a really cute book, not as in cutesy cute, but make you laugh cute.

Yorsh (His name is really Yorshkrunsquarkljolnerstrink), an elf, is the last of his...kind, you could call it, and he goes in search for the last dragon.

He is clearly young, and as he stumbles along in his story with the woman (Sajra) and the hunter (Monser), you laugh a lot, watch while Yorsh comes out of almost impossible places, and get to know the characters.

A lovely bunch. And there's a dog in it too!

“The Human was extremely tall. On its head it had yellowish hair coiled like a rope. It had no hair on its face. And yet his grandmother had been very categorical about that. Humans have hair on their faces. Its called a beard. Its one of the many things that distinguish them from elves. The little elf concentrated, trying to remember, then it came to him.

"You must be a female man," he concluded triumphantly.
"The word is woman, fool," said the human.
"Oh, sorry, sorry, woman-fool, I be more careful, I call right name, woman-fool"....”

“In human language, selling a smoking pot for three gold pieces is called a 'swindle,'" the man said, narrowly escaping a kick in the shins.
"In Elfish language it's called 'genius,'" the little elf replied cheerfully...”
