The Lovereading4Kids comment
The village of Little Chiddling is in turmoil - there’s a sleeping dragon on the railway line! Young Georgie decides she’ll try and wake it, after all there’s a reward of £100 up for grabs. The dragon is hungry and Georgie first gets his attention by rustling a packet of crisps, then takes him around the village to see what other food is going spare. Georgie and the dragon make an odd couple and this is a fun story that children will really enjoy. Examples of questions parents or adults can ask young readers are given at the end of the book, all certain to lead to further discussion. ~ Andrea Reece
Storytime: The Extremely Greedy Dragon by Jessica Barrah
Follow the fearless Georgie as she befriends a hungry dragon and shows others not to judge on first appearances in The Extremely Greedy Dragon. The village of Little Chiddling has a big problem. A sleeping dragon, that cannot be woken, is fast asleep on a railway line! The Mayor offers a reward to anyone that can move the dragon off the tracks. Georgie Johnson courageously takes up the task and manages to wake the dragon up by rustling a packet of crisps. The crisps are quickly gobbled up and it's not long before the dragon visits a cricket match, a barbecue and even a wedding! Will the dragon get up to trouble or will he be helpful to the village of Little Chiddling?
