Fergal in a Fix!
Publisher: Andersen Press
Fergal is off to Dragon Camp and he’s feeling a bit worried. There will be lots of new dragons to play with and lots of new things to try, and Fergal wants to make sure he is the best at everything (even if it requires cheating) so everyone will like him. However, things don’t quite go according to plan… Whilst Fergal is too busy trying to be the best at the activities at camp, he inadvertently alienates those around him. Will Fergal ever get to make friends at Dragon Camp?
A brilliant follow-up from Fergal is Fuming, the fiery yet well-meaning dragon is back to learn that perhaps trying to win and impress everyone isn’t the best way to help make friends in new situations. This humorous story, accompanied with charmingly simple illustrations, has an endearing message: people will like you just the way you are.
