Longlisted for the UKLA Book Awards 2020 | If your dragon’s fire has gone out, you’ve got a real problem. There are several things you could try to ignite it again but the real solution to your problem may come as a surprise. Children will love the wild design of this book where text and pictures come together in chaotic glory. Vivid, inventive language will ignite young imaginations.
A little boy has a problem with his dragon: he's no longer able to breathe fire. What to do? How on earth do you rekindle a despondent dragon's flame? The little boy tries shaking him by his tail, and jumping on his belly, and tickling his legs... No joy. How about goading him somehow? - make him angry, fuel his jealousy... Still no luck. Maybe sticking false flames on the side of his face would work - but, no, that makes it all worse. Much, much worse. Now the dragon's downright depressed. Oh no! He decides that he'll just have to tell him that he loves him just the way he is, even though he can't breathe fire, and that he will always be his dragon - and plants a big fat kiss on his cheek. What do you think happens next?
Set in a run-down hotel, similar to Wes Andersen's Grand Budapest Hotel, this story is told from the perspective of hotel owner's son, Gabriel. Despite the state of the hotel, Gabriel and his parents look after the old and eccentric residents very well, including Mrs Kettle who believes she is a former queen in exile from Kettlonia. As the hotel crumbles around them, the family and residents realise it's time to say goodbye. Until they receive the surprise of their life: Mrs Kettle really is a queen and her country has been freed - her people are asking her to come back home! Gabriel, his parents and the Herring residents build the hotel afresh next to Mrs Kettle's palace and they all live happily ever after in Kettlonia.
