Over at the Castle by Boni Ashburn

From the team behind Hush, Little Dragon comes another medieval-themed picture book. The adorable mama and baby dragon are back, but this time the focus of the book is on the occupants of the village, who spent their day spinning, cleaning, cooking, dancing and more. And then at the end of the day they look out their windows for a special surprise from their dragon neighbours. The folk song Over at the Meadow provides the inspiration for the counting game in the text. Readers will have fun counting along and poring over illustrations filled with the same sly humour of the duo's first book together.
