Description

Everyone has their very own dragon, and this book describes many different varieties of the beast, showing in words and stunning pictures exactly why their owners find them so entrancing. They range from a dragon as big as a village to a tiny dragon with whisper-thin wings, from a snaggle-toothed dragon to a sea-dragon which races dolphins on the waves - ending in a page inhabited by every dragon in the book!

Praise For Tell Me a Dragon

One of the absolute highlights of the autumn - the immensely talented Jackie Morris has produced a breathtaking picture book which teachers will fall upon. Superbly imaginative, rich in colour and movement, it will be used in the classroom for creative writing, drama, literacy, arts and oral skills, as well as being enjoyed in its own right as an example of the best in picture book writing and production. This is a magical book which children will delight in, and if it's not on the Kate Greenaway shortlist for 2009 I'll be amazed.
