LoveReading View on Have You Seen My Dragon?

Enter a fascinating, ornately drawn cityscape and help a boy find his dragon while counting objects from hot dogs to traffic lights. A little boy has lost his pet dragon amongst a huge city, and is travelling all over town looking for him. Could he have stopped for a hot dog? Maybe he went to see the monkeys in the park or stopped for a swim? Or did he take a taxi to the other side of town? As long as he hasn’t started a fire somewhere...
Adults will have just as much fun as children with this book – the pages are crammed with exquisite hidden details to spot and brilliant flashes of humour.

Have You Seen My Dragon? Synopsis

Steve Light's masterful pen-and-ink illustrations, decorated with meticulous splashes of colour, elevate this counting book (numbers 1-20) to new heights.

Steve Light's amazing skill with pen and ink is beautifully showcased here. It entertainingly incorporates a seek-and-find element (although finding the dragon isn't very difficult!) within a counting book - with both number word and numeral appearing on each spread. Unlike many counting books, this one goes from 1 to 20, making it suitable for slightly older children. The city setting is perfect for countable urban icons, which appear in colour amid the black-and-white illustrations...buses, taxis, manhole covers, books, bicycles and much more.

Have You Seen My Dragon? Press Reviews
