Synopsis

The Dragon Festival by An Vrombaut

Princess Florrie and Dear Dragon appear again in another exciting adventure - jam packed full of dragons with an endearing message of friendship and acceptance. There's a Dragoneering Competition at the castle and Princess Florrie thinks Dear Dragon should enter, but he's not sure that blowing bubbles is really a very dragoneering kind of skill!

Reviews

A heartwarming tale of friendship with a message of recognising your own unique skills. Junior On An's previous book DEAR DRAGON: 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 A charming tale about how being different is good. Practical Parenting
