Synopsis

That Pesky Dragon by Julie Sykes

Izzy's Dad had a farm. And on that farm there was a goat, a herd of cows, a flock of sheep, a brood of hens, three cats, two dogs...and a dragon! The pesky dragon's fiery breath turns the eggs to hardboiled, the wheat fields to toast and the cows milk to yoghurt! But Izzy soon discovers that every farm needs a dragon around! '...enriched by Melanie Williamson's dynamic illustrations, with their strong, textured colours and comic caricatures.' THE SUNDAY TIMES Melanie Williamson's illustrations are eye-catchingly quirky and superbly original. THE OBSERVER
