Reviews

Quirky and ebullient, this is excitingly plotted, vividly illustrated, and has a classy, enduring feel * Independent * You'd think that Wormell had a real dragon in his studio * Daily Telegraph * Dramatic illustration and clever humour that infants will find irresistible * TES Primary * A wonderfully well-executed book and exhilarating to read out loud * Carousel * Would be an absolute joy to read to a small person . . . With great illustrations, this is one of the best board books to have come my way * Newbury Weekly News *
