The Lovereading4Kids comment

You could say that this picture book is all about being proud of who you are and recognising people’s individual talents and interests. But really it’s a celebration of the delights of cakes and baking, and all the better for it. Flamie Oliver might be enormous and terrifying enough to win a place at the Ferocious Dragon Academy – for dragons very, very good at being very, very bad – but his real passion is baking. Presented with a princess to eat he ends up creating a feast with her, rather than featuring her. A fun story and Bake Off jokes are scattered throughout like glacé cherries in a fruit cake making this a tasty treat for fans of the series. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Great Dragon Bake off by Nicola O'Byrne

At the Ferocious Dragon Academy, dragons-in-training learn the arts of bone crunching and teeth sharpening. But there is one dragon who harbours a passion for a most undragon-like pastime ...

Meet Flamie Oliver. To look at, Flamie is as terrifying as a dragon can get. But behind closed doors, Flamie is ...a stupendously spectacular Star Baker! That's right - choux, rough, salty, sweet and puff - Flamie loves it all. In fact, he loves baking so much that his studies at the Ferocious Dragon Academy are starting to suffer, and there's a chance he won't graduate! Flamie's going to need a real showstopper to get out of this one.

On your marks, get set ...BAKE!

Fabulously funny and perfect for fans of BBCs Great British Bake Off.

About the Author

When Nicola was 5 years old her parents banned Saturday morning television, and she has been drawing ever since. Nicola grew up in Singapore surrounded by the vibrant colours of the tropics and had not even heard of illustration as a career before she discovered the Illustration course at Edinburgh College of Art. Having graduated from ECA, Nicola has now completed a Masters in Printmaking from Camberwell College of Art, as well as pursuing a career in children's book illustration. She gets most of her ideas for children's books when she should be working on something else, and bases all of her characters on people she knows.
