Dragon Boy Red Banana

Author: Pippa Goodhart Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/07/2003

An enchanting tale by Pippa Goodhart for Egmont's red banana series. Granda is different from other folk - he talks to the hills. One day, he tells his granddaughter, Lily, an old story about Dragon Boy - a human child who was raised by a dragon mother. The young lad lived happily with his family in the Dragon Hills. He looked like a dragon in his costume of leaves, and he learnt to sing dragon songs. But he couldn't make fire like his dragon friends and somehow, he still felt as if he was the odd one out. Then one day, Dragon Boy is reunited with his real mother and goes to live with his human family, but he still misses his dragon past and he still talks to them when he can. Just like Granda in fact, thinks Lily! Red bananas are chapter books for newly fluent readers, suitable for NC Level 3 readers. They are carefully designed illustrated books for both entertainment and education, supporting children's understanding of how to read longer books. Red bananas introduce similes and wordplay to encourage an understanding of more literary concepts.
