The Lovereading4Kids comment
Josh Lacey’s Dragonsitter stories are short, sharp and very funny. Once again, Eddie Smith-Pickle and his mum are landed with looking after Uncle Morton’s dragons while he’s busy doing something else. This time, their arrival coincides with Eddie’s birthday party, and Mum’s blossoming romance with Gordon. As ever, the havoc the dragons cause is described via Eddie’s emails to his uncle; Eddie gives us the bare basics so the reader fills in the blanks. Suffice to say that everyone has a great time at the party, with the exception of magician Mister Mysterio, and his rabbit. There’s a real adventure packed into this slim volume, perfect for newly independent readers. ~ Andrea Reece

The Dragonsitter's Party by Josh Lacey
It's Eddie's birthday and he's looking forward to a birthday party filled with fun, games and ...dragons? Ziggy and Arthur are the unexpected guests, but their idea of a good time involves eating everything in sight and ruining the party magician's tricks. Is Eddie in for the wrong kind of birthday surprise?
