A touching and magical adventure story, Green Smoke tells how Susan meets a very special dragon while on her summer holiday in Cornwall. R. Dragon is 1,500 years old. He’s green and scaly and has two golden-yellow horns but he’s not in the least scary. Together Susan and R. Dragon enjoy an enchanted holiday taking tea with a mermaid and indulging the dragon’s love of almond buns.

Jane Nissen Books is an imprint of Jane Nissen Books

logo Upon retirement from Penguin in 2001, and with the belief that children of the 21st Century should have access to some of the best-loved books of the 20th Century, many of which have gone out of print over the years, Jane Nissen set up her own publishing company with the sole purpose of bringing lost children's classics back into print. In 2007, Jane was granted the Eleanor Farjeon Award for distinguished service to the world of British children's books.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
