Synopsis

A fiery story about friendship and asking for help from award-winning author-illustrator Emma Yarlett. One day Alex finds a dragon living in the cupboard under the stairs. Luckily he knows just what to do. He writes letters to lots of different people – including the fire brigade and the butcher– to ask how he should take care of his surprise visitor. Children will love opening the five envelopes and reading the hilarious letters to Alex and then following his magical adventure with his new fiery friend. PRAISE FOR DRAGON POST “An adorable story…” Mail on Sunday “there is much fire-breathing comedy and five urgent letters to open.” The Evening Standard “[…] an ultimately uplifting treat and one that will remain with the adult reader…” The Big Issue “This is a delightful picture book with an extra element of brilliance in the five letters included in the book, which are utterly hilarious, clever, beautifully produced and full of puns and character.” BookTrust “This book became, within two readings, a firm favourite in our house. It is pure pleasure to see a new children’s book that combines spark with sincerity, and humour with humanity. More like this please!” Armadillo
