A brilliant idea! It's great to find out the origins of one of my favourite dragons from the series. It may be written a bit "younger" than the quadrilogy (so far) but it contains all you need to know about Gruffens' early days, written in a way that young and old alike (I'm 27) will adore

These are lovely stories, children (I include adults like myself who enjoy a good story regardless of age bracket) will enjoy them. They are about clay dragons who "come to life", that has been put in parenthesis because these particular dragons have to pretend to be clay when outsiders are around. Gruffen is a guardian dragon, able to interact with his person. Read the story, it is well worth your time!

This book came recommended by a friend. It is a good book but I bought it without seeing the size of the text and whilst the story was engaging and interesting she was bothered by the big print being too babyish. Great first chapter book for those who like things like the rainbow magic books.

I have read Chris d' Lacey's other set of dragon series and they have been on my favourite book list. Although this book is meant for younger children, it makes me giggle each time I read it.
Chris d' Lacey is a brilliant writer.

I have had a number of Chris D'Lacey's books on my shelf for a while now. It really is my loss that I have not read them sooner. On a positive note there are numerous books by him for me yet to read. The greatest thing about the books in the Dragons of Wayward Crescent series is how much my children love them and how much I enjoy them. They are great reads for the whole family. I usually read with each of my children at bed time, often just a chapter or two, but with these books we keep reading 'just 1 more chapter' we have also pulled them out after a meal and just sat at the table reading. My youngest two love these books and I love reading them with them so all around it is a win.

We have read these books out of order. But that has not impacted the reading. We read this one book 1 second. They do tell a single continuous story but are written well enough that you can read them out of order without impact. But based on how popular they are in our house I have a feeling we will be rereading them soon and this time we will read them in order.

This is the first book in this series, and this series is a prequel to The Last Dragon Chronicles series. There are currently 4 books in this series but I have heard that 12 were planned. We can only hope the others come to bear as Chris has time. In this book we meet Gruffen, or we witness to some extent the magic of a special dragon coming into being. We meet Lucy and Liz Pennykettle, a mother and daughter that know that Dragons are real, and somehow Lucy can create dragons on her potter's wheel and they can be brought to life. We meet some of the other dragons in the house including the listening dragon who sits upon the fridge. And also, Guinevere who helps to bring them to life.
