The Lovereading4Kids comment

This lively collection of poems reflects on all kinds of things from the magical such as the badly behaved dragon of the title poem, to the everyday. ‘Steel Birds’ is a wonderful poetic evocation of the cranes that dominate the skyline while in both ‘We’re going to have a baby’ and ‘Expecting’ both the joy and the disbelief are brilliantly captured.

Synopsis

The Dragon with a Big Nose by Kathy Henderson

The dragon with a big nose and twelve toes on each foot, eats flies and mince pies and sometimes, when he's very bad, whole towns upside down...Read about the dragon with the big nose, the gutter creature who rustles litter, and the dustcart dragon with his raging, rusty belly; watch the train rattling by, clackety-clack, clickety-click. Then find out if the new baby is magic, and whether Uncle Clem really had a blue mouse. But DON'T turn your grandmother into a frog!
