A Wind in the Door by Madeleine L’Engle
Young Charles Wallace calls the alien intelligence Proginoskes “A drive of dragons.”
Progo once learned the name of every star, but now comes to help Charles and Meg.
Meg is no angelic alien. But in this terrible time of need, she must learn to care for everyone.
Deep compassion is the only answer to the Echthroi who wish to unname all of creation.
