George’s dragon takes him to the home of a wicked witch who is keeping a young dragon imprisoned in a cage. Can George free the little dragon? George’s dragon must fly his fastest to outstrip the witch on her broomstick and keep the world from her evil power. A useful word list will help build reading stamina.

'It's the high quality illustrations which really make these books stand out - they are full of detail and an excellent way to promote discussion. On the back cover of each book is a box containing all the new words learnt through the story; this is excellent for both parents and teachers and can be used effectively to help spelling and recognition.'
