The Lovereading4Kids comment
New from the creators of The Giant of Jum is another warm-hearted fairy-tale adventure brimming with joy and excitement. The Dragons of Dread are a terrible bunch, who love to snack on ‘dribblesome, nibblesome, knobble-kneed knights’. When little Dram turns four, he’s sent out alone to bite a knight, but soon runs into trouble, crash-landing in a lake. Fortunately there’s a young human there to help. Sharp-eyed readers will immediately spot that this little boy is a knight-in-training and anticipation builds for the moment these new friends realise they’re supposed to be sworn enemies. The rhyming text is great fun and lovely to read aloud. Benji Davies’s illustrations take us swooping through the air then provide close-ups of a growing friendship. This author-illustrator team give Donaldson and Scheffler a run for their money! ~ Andrea Reece

- Alex, age 4 and William, age 7 - 'Colourful pictures and the dragons faces were kind. We enjoyed this book which had a lovely message of anyone can be friends.'
