The Last Dragonslayer, by Jasper Fforde
This storyboard does not have a description.
This is our protagonist, fifteen-year-old Jennifer Strange. She's a foundling and when she was twelve, she was put into a six-year apprenticeship at Kazam. Kazam is a wizard hiring company. They used to do many large-scale operations, but new technology renders them to doing mostly housework contracts. After the manager of Kazam, Mr. Zambini, goes missing.
Unfortunately, magic doesn't work as well as it used to. The cause is a mystery, but it may have something to do with the last dragon, whose death has been magically predicted to occur soon.
It was predicted that Jennifer had something to do with the death of the last dragon. She became a national sensation quickly. The king also had his eye on her because he sought to acquire the dragon's land once he died.
Jennifer went to see the previous Dragonslayer, who is over one hundred years old at this point. He teaches her the history of the Dragonslayers and gives her access to a special sword, a special car, and entry into the Dragonlands before the years catch up with him and he crumbles to dust.
Jennifer meets the dragon, Maltcassion is his name. After speaking with him for awhile, Jennifer doesn't want to kill the dragon. She wants to do what's right and protect the ecosystem of the Dragonlands from the king and the companies who wish to profit from it. But Maltcassion knows his fate and urges her to kill him.
Eventually, the majestic Maltcassion is slain. From him, two new dragons spring forth. The End
