Tell me a Dragon

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Review

Here are dragons that can curl around an ear, sing and laugh. Some are as big as a village or as long as a river. Sinuous dragons of every hue live in the city, the countryside or under the sea, delighting in water, fire or ice.

Jackie Morris’s lyrical descriptions imagine each child’s relationship with their own dragon, and the reader is invited to imagine their dragon, too, at the end of the book. Richly and vividly illustrated and with a wealth of detail, this is an imaginative resource for art and language work.

This updated edition has a lovely extra few pages of 'Field notes and observations on the lives and habitats of dragons' at the end, featuring a collection of facts, myths, legends and even collective nouns.
