The Lovereading4Kids comment

Tiny Tich is bored and bullied, but when his Dad gives him a game called Ideal’s Imaginator it transforms his life into a series of remarkable adventures. Tich finds himself transported through time and place to a land where a dragon is terrorising the locals, setting fire to their crops and homes, who are desperate for a hero to become their ‘Dragonslayer’ and save them. Pete Barrett’s non-stop action story and quirky humour keeps the reader glued to the page, providing a glorious read for thrill-seeking seven year olds and above.


Tich Dragonslayer by Pete Barrett

Tich thinks dragon slaying is tough – but dragon baby-sitting is even tougher!

Tich is small – and fed up! He thinks life is rubbish. Then dad gives him an old board game and suddenly he’s off on an adventure. Slay a dragon – on his own? Maybe school’s not so bad after all. When Tich brings a real live dragon’s egg home, can the gang really cope? A baby dragon may be a cool pet but no one wants to be burnt to a crisp.
