A fast-paced and ultimately heart-warming tale that will appeal to 8+ year olds, particularly boys and a lovely read for fathers and sons to share. It's the extraordinary story of a boy growing up and coming to terms with the sometimes harsh realities of life. He's bullied at school, his home life is tough so each day he can't wait to go through the school gates to his other world; a world where his best friend is a creature in a cave. From here the boy and the dragon go on wonderful adventures that make his other world seem a world away.

Synopsis

Grownups Can't be Friends with Dragons by Antony Wootten

Brian is always in trouble at school, and his home life is far from peaceful. So he often runs away to the cave by the sea where he has happy memories. But there is something else in the cave: a creature, lonely and confused. Together they visit another world where they find wonderful friends, but also deadly enemies. Brian's life is torn between the two worlds, and he begins to realise that, in the real world at least, grown-ups can't be friends with dragons.
