Synopsis

Who Wants a Dragon? by James Mayhew, Lindsey Gardiner

Who wants a dragon, all fiery and bright? A lost baby dragon, alone in the night? This little dragon does not mean to give the knight a fright or tip the witch off her broom. Even though he is a little clumsy, all he really wants is someone to love him ...but who will? An utterly delightful tale, filled with fairytale characters and the all important happy ending!

About the Author

James Mayhew studied at Maidstone College of Art and his first children's book, Katie's Picture Show was published in 1989. It's been firmly in print ever since, recognised universally as the original and best introduction to art for children. Many more titles have followed, and the series sells in museums and galleries all over the world, from the Met in New York, to the Uffizi in Florence, the Louvre in Paris and beyond. He is also the creator of the much-loved Ella Bella Ballerina series, and many other titles. Alongside his work in publishing, James has devised and performed in a hugely successful series of concerts for children, combining live classical music, storytelling and live art. From Peter and the Wolf, to Scheherazade, James has worked internationally with many different orchestras and musicians, creating illustrations in time to music. James grew up in Suffolk but now lives in Hertfordshire.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
