Synopsis

A Dragon on the Doorstep by Stella Blackstone

What would you do if you found a dragon on your doorstep? Or a crocodile in your cupboard? In this playful hide-and-seek book that introduces children to scary animals, best-selling Barefoot author-and-artist team Stella Blackstone and Debbie Harter have once again created a humorous and highly entertaining story that kids will love to read again and again.

Reviews

'Plaudits must go to Barefoot Books, though, for the season's most colourful and consistently high-quality titles... the prolific Stella Blackstone has three goodies on the way [including] A Dragon on the Doorstep, illus. Debbie Harter.' - Nicola Smyth, Independent on Sunday'

About the Author

On good days, Stella Blackstone lives east of the sun and west of the moon. On less good days, she lives at the bottom of a well. She finds ideas in all of these places and turns them into songs, poems and rhymes. She has read and written poetry for as long as she can remember, and her favourite books include Louis Untermeyer’s A Child’s Treasury of Poetry, which was a constant companion throughout her childhood, Paolo Coelho’s The Alchemist, everything by T.S. Eliot, and William Buck’s translation of The Ramayana. She lives in southwest England, and enjoys walking and working in her garden as well as doing nothing whenever she has the chance.
