Evermore Dragon

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

The second Girl and Dragon picture book from Joosse and Cecil, which continues the story of their friendship. In Lovabye Dragon the lonely Girl, who lives in a castle, found Dragon, and the lonely Dragon, who lives in a cave, found Girl and they became best friends.

In their latest adventure they are playing hide-and-seek, and Girl wanders off too far, hides, and then falls asleep. Waking up hours later in the dark she is frightened, but the dauntless Dragon finds her, promising that 'Evermore, evermore, I am here'.

Joosse creates evocative new words, and uses rhyme to tell a gentle, reassuring tale, which is ideally echoed in Cecil's misty, murky and muted depictions of this delightful adventure.
