Dragons are a particular favourite of most children, and this book honours the mythical creatures with words and pictures. Jackie Morris, known for her fantastic use of colours and beauty of her art, offers young readers a gallery of dragons in every shape, size, and temperament imaginable. This book describes many different varieties, 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 that races dolphins on the waves.
'The idea for Tell Me a Dragon came whilst working on the Terry Pratchett Disc World Calendar. In Guards Guards there is a place where dragons sleep and wait to be summoned. They are created by the imagination of those who summon them, and when I was working in schools I began to ask children, if they had a dragon, what would it look like? Some answers were very simple, but some lit the children's imagination until the air echoed with the sound of dragon wings. One day someone asked me, if I had a dragon, what would it be like. I realized that almost every day it would be different. Some days I would like a big dragon to fight battles for me, sometimes a small dragon to curl around my ear and tell me stories. Each day a different dragon, but each one mine. And so I wrote Tell Me a Dragon.'Jackie Morris.
Everyone has their very own dragon, and this gorgeous book will inspire you to discover what yours would look like.
