Rory is afraid of winter's darkness, imagining that monsters and demons might creep out from the shadows and cold. So, with paint and glitter, he crafts a Winter Dragon of emerald green with a crest of brilliant red. Each night the dragon comes alive to tell him stories of knights and battles, of elf-kings and treasure hoards. Through these dreamtime adventures, Rory grows brave. But as spring approaches, the Winter Dragon has his own dream: returning to his fiery home. Caroline Pitcher's evocative prose and Sophy Williams's atmospheric artwork make this a memorable story of overcoming fear with imagination.
