The Dragon Snatcher by M. P. Robertson


The Dragon Snatcher by M. P. Robertson

If dragons are ever in trouble, there is only one person who can help them: George, of course! So when an ice wizard plots to steal all the dragon eggs, George knows he must stop this wicked plan. But with just one egg left to collect, will George save the day or will the wizard keep the dragon eggs forever in his icy clutches? Let the chase begin!


Full page pictures of dragons swooping and breathing fire leap out of the book from every angle. Blackbird Pie Beautifully crafted and illustrated with a valiant theme for the boys and a soft endearing aspect for the girls I'd happily recommend this book for keeps. Dramatic illustrations and timeless prose style give the feeling of reading an ancient legend, while a humorous twist at the end reminds us this is a modern tale.
