When Dragons are Dreaming

Publisher: Orchard Books

It’s night time and dragons should be dreaming but, in the bright light of a full moon, one little dragon is awake and watching fairies dancing and playing in the trees.

Dragon tries to join in, but his size and clumsiness frighten away the fairies – except for one, who gets caught in a spider’s web.

The only one big and fearless enough to rescue her is Dragon and soon the pair are best of friends, chasing and playing until one of them is at last ready for his bed.

The woodland setting is a place of comforting intimacy in this fantasy, and the richness of colours and patterning used by the illustrator create an inviting, magical night-time world. Likely to be a much-requested bedtime read.
