Synopsis

Dear Dragon by An Vrombaut

It's Princess Florrie's birthday. She is tired of all the usual entertainment - jugglers, jesters and acrobats and wants something a little unusual for her party. Something like a dreadful dragon. The rest of the palace is convinced he's too dreadful, but Princess Florrie likes a challenge so she decides to write him a letter!

Reviews

A bight and humorous story by the creator of 64 Zoo Lane. Family Interest Magazine Vrombaut creates a vibrant fairytale setting for the feisty Florrie to spread her wings and crush a few stereotypes along the way. Junior Bags of colour in the big splashy illustrations and a humorous touch with the words make An Vrombaut's Dear Dragon a winner for reading to the threes-plus. Newbury Weekly News Highly recommeded for younger readers: A great story with bold illustrations. Red House Children's Book Award pamphlet Engaging, with a funky outlook, spunky heroine and quivering courtiers, this tale is sure to be popular and will also help children to recognise that reading is worthwhile and enjoyable. Carousel succeed{s} in getting the fine balance of interesting narrative, lively illustration and humour just right. Cape Times
