Josh Lacey’s Dragonsitter books pack really quite huge adventures as well as a lot of laughs into a very short extent, and are perfect for young readers. The Smith-Pickles are still baby-sitting Uncle Morton’s dragons and Eddie takes two, Ziggy and baby Arthur, on a half-term trip with Dad to London. Cue disaster, especially when Arthur escapes in the Natural History Museum. As ever, the story is told via emails from Eddie to his uncle, and his brief reports provide just enough detail to enable the reader to fill in the blanks for a real sense of the chaos being caused. Inventive, clever and hugely satisfying these little books are really very good indeed. ~ Andrea Reece
Fans will also enjoy Pugs of the Frozen North by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre, another zany but cleverly written and illustrated adventure.
More chaos and fun as Eddie takes the dragons to London, but things go seriously wrong when Arthur gets lost! The sixth book in the popular Dragonsitter series.
Dear Uncle Morton I have to tell you some bad news. We have lost Arthur. He's somewhere in London, but I don't know where. Eddie takes the dragons with him on his half-term trip to London, but it's not long before disaster strikes and both dragons go missing. From the Natural History Museum to the London Eye, through tube stations, hotels and London Zoo, Eddie chases his dragons, hoping to avert disaster. But there's no smoke without a fire...
