The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is the author’s first stand alone novel since the spectacular Here Lies Arthur, winner of the 2008 Carnegie Medal. Reeve’s brilliant imagination has conjured up a dragon story in the grand tradition of children’s fantasy fiction, but one that is spectacularly different – one that has a very contemporary perspective.
Ansel serves Brock, the famous dragon slayer who makes his living by slaying creatures whose very existence he doubts. But is his doubt misguided? Ansel and Brock climb the perilous ice face to find out the truth once and for all. How myths become reality and the impact they have on people’s lives fuels this witty and original story from the master craftsman of Mortal Engines. It’s a classic novel for children from a monster talent.
No Such Thing As Dragons by Philip Reeve
This is a dragon story with a brilliant twist from multi award-winning writer, Philip Reeve. Ansel's new master slays dragons for a living. He says he's hunted the monstrous worms all over Christendom and has the scars to prove it. But is Brock just a clever trickster in shining armour? Ansel is sure there are no such things as dragons. So what is the man-eating creature that makes its lair in the crags of Dragon Mountain? Ansel and Brock must climb the ice face to discover the terrifying truth.
A message from multi-prize winning author, Frank Cottrell Boyce on reading No Such thing as Dragons:
‘Philip Reeve’s imagination is electrifying’
Praise for Philip Reeve:
‘Intelligent, funny and wise’ Literary Review on Fever Crumb
‘Reeve drives his juggernaut of a talent through the streets of a mob-crazed futuristic London with Cecil B DeMille grandeur. Resent being suckered into sequels? Fever Crumb is a complete story – but it may prove addictive’
‘A bold, brightly honed narrative that grabs and holds the attention from the start’
‘If you’ve never read a Philip Reeve novel before, you’re in for a treat. His storytelling abilities are accomplished and his use of language most ingenious – and irreverent’
‘A masterpiece’ Sunday Telegraph
‘A majestic achievement’ Sunday Times
‘Marvellous… utterly captivating in its imaginative scope and energy’ Daily Telegraph
‘Brilliant… an absorbing and emotionally engaging work’ Amanda Craig, The Time
