The Dragonsitter Takes Off

Publisher: Anderson Press

 'Dear Uncle Morton. You'd better get on a plane right now and come back here. Your dragon has eaten Jemima.'

It had sounded so easy: Edward was going to look after Uncle Morton's unusual pet for a week while he went on holiday. But soon the fridge is empty, the curtains are blazing, and the postman is fleeing down the garden path.

A simple, slick idea of an email exchange between a nephew and an uncle accompanied by straight forward, satisfying newspaper style illustrations. A great fantastical yet at the same time down to earth story written in a very manageable and enjoyable way suitable for younger readers gaining confidence in their independent reading.
