Sylvia and Bird

Publisher: Little Tiger Press

'In a faraway place on a high mountain top', a dragon named Sylvia lives in a leafy paradise. Sylvia has searched the world for another dragon to be her friend, but closer to home she finds little yellow Bird.

The two become companions, but it takes a courageous act of true friendship by Bird (and a near disaster) for Sylvia to see that Bird is the very best friend she could wish for.

A story that gently explores themes of expectation, loneliness, friendship and valuing others.

Here Rayner, shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal and a former winner of the Best New Illustrator in the Booktrust Early Years Award, uses loose line over layered watercolour to create textured, endearing characters and a vision of timeless, vast, fairytale spaces.
