Description

Dear Uncle Morton Your dragons are still here. They have eaten the entire contents of the fridge and most of the tins in the cupboard too. Arthur also swallowed three spoons and the remote control. Mum says they will probably come out the other end, but I'm not really looking forward to that. When Eddie has to take Uncle Morton's dragons away with him in the Christmas holidays - it's not long before they're causing all sorts of mischief again! Dragonsitting isn't getting any easier for Eddie. A castle, a sneezing dragon and a big box of fireworks. Looks like the new year is going to start with a bang! Illustrated throughout by Garry Parsons - the perfect young reader package. Book one in this mini series was incredibly well received on publication: "A witty and perfectly formed little book that deserves to be read and reread". (Books For Keeps). "Short, sharp and funny". (Telegraph). And was sold at auction in Germany. Josh Lacey's Grk series has been sold in 13 countries and is described as: "Smart and pacy". (Sunday Times). "A delight". (The Times). It is shortlisted for the Branford Boase and Blue Peter Book Awards.
