Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, the first book about Eddie and Ziggy, a very unusual dragon, is now followed by a sequel.
Eddie had thought that looking after a dragon would be easy but how wrong he is! How Eddie manages his wayward dragon and deals with the fire breathing friend who comes to visit her is a brilliant follow up for all of Eddie and Ziggy’s fans.
***In addition to a review by our Lovereading4kids editorial expert some children on our Lovereading4kids Reader Review Panel were lucky enough to read and review one of the titles in the Dragonsitter series - Dragonsitter's Island. They loved it. Click here to read their reviews.
Dear Uncle Morton, Ziggy won't move from the linen cupboard. He still hasn't eaten a thing. Not even a Malteser. I'm really quite worried about him. Eddie had thought that this time dragonsitting would be easy - until Ziggy disappears, only to be found in the linen cupboard, refusing to budge. But moving Ziggy is the last thing on Eddie's mind when he learns that his uncle's dragon has been keeping a big secret...
