Do Not Disturb the Dragons

Do Not Disturb the Dragons

Michelle Robinson
Bloomsbury Childrens Books
ISBN: 9781408894880

Princess Grace knows how lucky she is to be living in Wondermere Castle, but that doesn't stop her resenting the rules - all 947 of them - especially the ones that say she can't play troll-o, be a knight or have ice-cream for breakfast. The rules are there to keep the dragons nesting in the castle turrets who bring the Kingdom luck, but surely bending them a little won't do any harm, will it?

Laugh out loud funny, Do Not Disturb The Dragons is a raucous, rule-breaking romp showing that if you are blocked from following your dreams, you have to be the change you want, and that just because something, like not eating ice-cream for breakfast, has always been the rule, it doesn't mean it should stay that way.

Vivid descriptions bring the kingdom, and the inhabitants, of Wondermere to life. Whether it's the king's daughters, knights-in-training, ball trolls, imps or wild unicorns, every character has a unique voice. I particularly loved Princess Grace's unicorn!

Sharon Davey's playful illustrations bring the fun and joy at the heart of this delightful story to life, and capture the cheeky, charming girls and their friends' personalities perfectly.

Perfect for younger readers striking out on their own reading adventure, this would also make a fun class read for KS1 with lots to talk about along the way. And even better, it's the first in a series, too!

Great for fans of: Beatrix The Bold by Simon Mockler, The Boy Who Grew Dragons by Andy Shepherd, and The Legend Of Kevin by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre.
