Shortlisted for the Pre-school Award, Early Year Awards 2009

Sylvia is the only dragon in the whole world, and she is very lonely... until one day, she meets Bird. Tiny and chirpy, so different from the huge dragon, Bird somehow changes Sylvia's life forever. A gorgeous story about love and friendship from the pen of Augustus and his Smile and Ernest.

Greenaway Medal winning illustrator Catherine Rayner’s stunning illustrations create a beautiful, warm-hearted celebration of the very special friendship between a great big dragon and a tiny little bird. Sylvia the dragon is lonely as she doesn’t know any other dragons and doesn’t have any friends. Then she finds Bird. Together, the two of them set off on an adventure to the moon in the hope of finding other dragons…When their mission fails, Sylvia and Bird discover that their friendship is all they need and settle down to live happily ever after.
