Best-selling author Richard Adams’s spins a delightful and magical story of a toy dragon who comes to life and brings all kinds of surprises when he does so. Although only made from egg boxes, Emma’s toy dragon turns out to have a variety of skills. He is good at roaring, great at breathing fire and outstanding at finding things that have gone missing. Luckily, the Egg Box Dragon is on hand when the Queen looses the biggest diamond from her crown. Soon it is safely back in its place and Emma and her Dragon enjoy a slap-up royal tea in return. Alex T Smith’s vibrant illustrations bring the quirky story to life. ~ Julia Eccleshare
