Book Description

1 July 2010

Poor little Dragon just can't get to sleep, no matter how hard he tries. Instead, what he'd really like to do is dance through the moonlight and play games in the starlit sky with the fairies . . . but will they let him?

This book will be perfect at bedtimes for settling sleepyheads down for the night.

Another beautifully written, velvety verse from James Mayhew with beautiful illustrations from Lindsey Gardiner who won the Richard and Judy prize with her Poppy and Max characters.

By Miss H
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A simple rhyming tale about a young dragon who just can't sleep and wishes he could play with the fairies, but when he tries they fly away saying he's too big to play. However when he rescues one fairy from a spider's web he makes a new friend to play with. Lovely illustrations and large print, perfect for young readers at bedtime. Ages 2+.
