Here Be Dragons, Paperback / softback Book

Here Be Dragons Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Paddy Donnelly

Paperback / softback


This book is about a knight on a very important mission.

A mission to find and battle a dragon. The other knights have told him that there's no such thing as dragons, but he says, "Forsooth!

There is TOO such a thing!" You just need to know where to look and this knight has something very special that no one else has.

A map that says: "HERE BE DRAGONS." So he sets off armed with the map, a sword and his trusty stead.

He travels right to the spot marked 'X', past shiny, sparkly treasure, some suspicious bones and many signs telling him to turn back...

RIGHT AWAY. But alas, he is too busy looking at his map to notice.

He then wanders up and down a huge, spiky hill (the dragon's back), shouts into a burrow (the dragon's nose) and eventually walks into a very dark cave (the dragon's mouth)...

Will the hapless knight see the dragon before it's too late?!

In this laugh-out-loud story, young readers will love the many 'he's behind you' moments in this hilarious picture book from the author of This Book Can Read Your Mind, Susannah Lloyd, and the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal nominee, Paddy Donnelly.

Readers will love returning to this book time and time again to see if they can spot the fearsome dragon in the background.
